Calgary to Dinosaur Provincial Park | Day Tour
Step into another world. Watch the landscape transform from golden prairie to wild Badlands as you journey from Calgary to Dinosaur Provincial Park.
Together we will explore Dinosaur Provincial Park, one of the world's richest deposits of ancient fossils. Start off by standing on the edge of the prairie looking out over the largest most continuous stretch of Badlands. You'll be amazed by the abundant fossils, unusual wildlife and stunning landscapes at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the fossil exhibits in the Visitor Centre and get up close to the species that have discovered right here in the park. After lunch we will hike as a group among the hoodoos on the Badlands Trail. An expert park interpreter will meet us at one of the two fossil houses to introduce us to the Headless Hadrosaur and then we set of into the protected natural preserve to search for fossils in the wild. No visit to the park would be complete without a walk into the lowest point of the park, with the Badlands peaks high above you, to visit the Plains Cottonwood tree's that are estimated to be more than 200 years old. After walking in the footsteps of prehistoric giants we will depart to return to Calgary in time for dinner.
