  • Coal was the reason that people came to the Crowsnest Pass in the first place, so it's well worth the time to physically see and hear the history of the area underground. More than 30 miners lost thei...  more »
  • Dress warmly for this one, even if it's shorts and sandals weather outside. Temperature inside the mine hovers around freezing (0C) so it makes for an unpleasant hour if you don't dress appropriately....  more »

  • What a tour! So neat to experience a peice of AB history in this coal mine. Tour guides were exceptional. Highly recommended.
  • One of the highlights of our trip. You get to go into the mine and experience total darkness at one point. The guides are entertaining and informative. My seven year old loved the stories of how rookie miners would get pranked. Follow the signage from the highway through the town. It's easy to find and definitely worth it! Dress warm it's chilly in the mine (but certainly bearable)
  • This tour was very educational and fun!
  • It's sad to know that the miners were treated badly, even worse than a horse. Tough work in such a dark and dangerous working environment. Don't know how much better is the situation of miners today?
  • My family and I had an absolutely fantastic experience on this tour. Our guide was sweet and fun, the tour was interesting and well worth the money. I highly recommend this tour to anyone in the area!
