Your family holiday experience kicks off in Calgary as we step back into Cretaceous Alberta at the Calgary Zoo’s Prehistoric Park; a six-acre park that’s home to life-size replica dinosaurs in their re-created geographical environment, including an inland sea and a volcanic mountain, and more than 100 species of living plants!

Then we’ll head east for a couple days of discovery and prehistoric adventures in Drumheller; “the Dinosaur capital of the World!” As we make our way out to Drumheller, we’ll stop to walk through Horseshoe Canyon with a paleontologist before arriving in town and climbing up into the mouth of “the World’s Largest Dinosaur,” visit The Fossil Shop, and spend multiple days for a specially curated experience the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology!

Our dedicated Royal Tyrrell Museum experience includes two days of fossil prospecting hikes into the Badlands with experts and educators, plenty of free time to privately roam the gallery spaces, special indoor and outdoor dinosaur dig experiences, and an exciting and interactive raptor assembly workshop.

Next we’re off to Dinosaur Provincial Park to head into the palaeontology lab in the Visitor Centre to create an authentic fossil cast and to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site through the eyes of First Nations people, the early 1900’s fossil hunters, and modern paleontologists.

We’ll celebrate the end of our dinosaur adventure as we glamp and grill under the big open Alberta skies for our final evening. In the morning, we head back to Calgary for those headed home, or for those adding the optional nights in Banff / Canmore & Kananaskis for two days and nights of more outdoor family adventure and a healthy dose of rest and relaxation for everyone.
