Guided Tours

(2-3 Hour Tour)

The Islands Tour (14 km)– guided kayak or canoe tour starting from the Lions Campground and ending at the Red Deer River Adventures main site. The river gradient decreases approaching Drumheller, and the current slows allowing for a relaxing slower pace and the opportunity to really study the features of the badlands. Some of the earliest and most important dinosaur discoveries in Alberta were made in the badlands in this area and we will pass near the site where the first Albertosaurus was discovered.

(2-3 Hour Tour)

The Rosedale Tour (13 km) – guided kayak or canoe tour starting from the Red Deer River Adventure main site and ending at the hamlet of Cambria. This is a very popular run that passes much of downtown Drumheller but is sheltered from it by large cottonwoods. As we launch you will see the famous World’s Largest Dinosaur near downtown.

(Half Day Tour 4-6 Hours based on water levels)

Horsethief Canyon – (21 km ) – guided kayak or canoe tour starting from the Bleriot Ferry and ending at the Red Deer River Adventures main site. Here we will see rocks from near the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago, near the end of the age of dinosaurs. This area is well known for fossil discoveries of these beasts. There have been over 35 dinosaur discoveries recorded in the region. Soon after our launch we reach Horsethief Canyon on our left.

(Full Day Tours 5-9 hours based on water levels)

Upper Drumheller Valley – (32 km ) – guided kayak or canoe tour starting from Morrin Bridge and ending at the Red Deer River Adventures main site. Here we will see rocks from near the end of the Cretaceous Period, 70 million years ago, near the end of the age of dinosaurs and it is an area well documented with fossil discoveries of these beasts.

Full Day Tours (5-9 hours based on water levels)

Lower Drumheller Valley (26 km) – guided kayak or canoe tour starting from the Red Deer River Adventure main site and ending at the hamlet of East Coulee. This very popular run passes downtown Drumheller but is sheltered from it by large cottonwoods. As we launch you will see the famous World’s Largest Dinosaur near downtown. An island coincides with the Drumheller Town limit and then the railway track and thick brush buffer the river from civilization so it feels more remote than it really is.
