Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

While Canada is a relatively young country, there are many architecturally significant buildings and landmarks for you to explore in Alberta. Our oldest building is a chapel built in 1861 by Father Albert Lacombe as the heart of the settlement of St. Albert. Here, and at many other historic sites, costumed interpreters will take you back in time. From Edmonton’s Legislative Assembly of Alberta, built of marble and local sandstone in 1907 in the Beaux Arts style popular at the time, to the Calgary Tower built 60 years later of concrete and steel, you’ll discover fascinating architecture around the province that expresses our evolving history and culture.

Hoodoos and Hoodoo Trail

Drumheller, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Hoodoos take millions of years to form and stand 5 to 7 metres tall. Each hoodoo is a sandstone pillar resting on a thick base of shale that is capped by a large stone. Hoodoos are very fragile and can erode completely if their capstone is dislodged. The protected Hoodoos site is a guaranteed spot to see Hoodoos but smaller versions of these sandstone giants can be found all over the Badlands. The Hoodoos make a great stop on the way to the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site in East Coulee. There's no cost to stop and visit.
