Guided Tours

(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.

 

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. The badlands are quite spectacular in this area and important fossil finds have been made here. After a while you pass the Rosedale Bridge and the small hamlet of Rosedale. Around the bend you encounter the mouth of the Rosedale River and there is a bit of a riffle that provides some excitement. A short time later you pass under the Star Mine Suspension Bridge. This popular tourist attraction allowed miners to access the Star Mine across the river. The original bridge was destroyed by a landslide and was rebuilt in 1958 to honour mining heritage.
