Canadian Badlands

Alberta, Canada

Saddle up and get ready to explore Canada’s “Wild West” in Alberta’s Badlands. Home to a treasure trove of fossils and famed for their unique coulee landscapes and hoodoo rock formations, the Canadian Badlands are an iconic road-trip destination. Channel your inner Indiana Jones by participating in an authentic dinosaur dig at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Dinosaur Provincial Park. Continue your paleontological research at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, where 130,000 fossils beckon. When night falls, camp out in a tepee village, stay in a historic ranch house, or cozy up in a one of the region’s many charming bed and breakfasts.
