Dinosaur Capital of the World

Keep an eye out for prehistoric beasts lurking in dark corners during your trip to Drumheller. Dubbed the "Dinosaur Capital of the World" thanks to its extensive palaeontology museum, as well as the 26 m (86 ft) tall T-Rex statue that offers sweeping views over the Badlands, the town attracts dinosaur-mad visitors from across the globe. A holiday to Drumheller offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure; the town serves as a great base for hikes through the Badlands, and sits far enough north to offer glimpses of the northern lights during winter.

Where to stay in Drumheller

If you want to embrace the town's Jurassic obsession, stay in a fun--if somewhat tacky--dinosaur-themed hotel. Most of the town's accommodations sit along the main roads of South Dinosaur Trail and Railway Avenue East, with a few budget-friendly motels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and cabins to the north of the river.
