The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is considered Canada's most complete historic coal mine and offers visitors a range of interpretive tours, on the surface, underground and up into the last wooden tipple in the country. We tell the amazing stories of the miners who came to seek their fortunes in the Drumheller Valley, in the heart of the Canadian Badlands.
The town of Trochu, located about an hour southeast of Red Deer, is home to the world's largest golf tee. The towering 12 m (40 ft) tall tee stands just outside the Trochu Golf and Country Club.
Visit the town of Donalda to view the world's largest oil lamp replica. Built as a millennium project in 2000, the lamp is 12.8 m (42 ft) high and 5.18 m (17 ft) wide. The impressive structure, which is made of steel and fibreglass and lights up at dusk, overlooks the Meeting Creek Coulee and is open for viewing during the Donalda & District Museum operating hours.

Adventure though Alberta and the Drumheller Badlands, home of the famous Dinosaur Provincial Park.
The grandeur of the Canadian Rockies awaits you! Travel the famous Icefields Parkway, Drumheller, Cypress Hills and Edmonton.
Alberta's Badlands are unveiled as we depart from Drumheller or other pick-up locations and venture through the scenic Red Deer River Valley.
