Itineraries
Day 1: CALGARY — HORSESHOE CANYON — ROYAL TYRRELL MUSEUM — LITTLE CHURCH — SUSPENSION BRIDGE — HOODOOS — CALGARY

Today, travel to Drumheller Valley, where offers you a unique combination of spectacular scenery and interesting things to do. 

[Horseshoe Canyon]

A glacier-carved "U" surrounded by golden prairie, the aptly named Horseshoe Canyon is a dramatic introduction to the badlands. (stop for about 15 minutes)

[Royal Tyrrell Museum (Optional)]

Features ten signature galleries devoted to palaeontology, with 40 dinosaur skeletons with more than 110000 fossil specimens. (stop for about 90 minutes)

[Little Church]

This church was first erected by local contractor Trygve Seland, in cooperation with the ministerial Association in 1968 and was reconstructed by inmates of the Drumheller Institution in 1991. It was designed as a place of worship and mediation and not just a tourist attraction. (stop for about 15 minutes)

[Suspension Bridge]

Constructed in 1931, the bridge was built for the coal workers of Star Mine. (stop for about 20 minutes)

[Hoodoos]

The Drumheller hoodoos are internationally recognized icons of the Alberta badlands. Composed of sand and clay from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, the solid, strong capstones protect the softer, underlying base creating their unique mushroom-like shape. (stop for about 30 minutes)

**Return to Calgary and arrive around 17:00PM
