Located approximately 140 kilometers northeast of Calgary is the small town of Drumheller, which proudly calls itself the “Town of the Dinosaurs”. Around 75 million years ago, various species of dinosaurs inhabited this region, and many fossils have been discovered in and around Drumheller. The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology displays some of the finds and offers an indepth look at the history of the area.
The landscape around Drumheller consists mainly of badlands. There are some interesting hiking trails that lead past hoodoos and through unique rock formations. The “Dinosaur Trail” is a driving tour that leads through some of the area’s main attractions.
