Isn’t it Time You Visited the Canadian Badlands?

Just a scenic drive from several urban hubs including Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and the northern US, the Canadian Badlands is a unique travel and tourism region in southeastern Alberta.

Ride a vintage steam train, or dance under the northern lights. Explore an abandoned coal mine, or dig for fossils. Take a river boat ride, or interpret ancient petroglyphs, shop for local art, or camp in comfort. Live the cowboy life, feel the need for speed, or just lie back, relax, and take in the breathtaking landscape. Hike through the hoodoos, or hug your kids by a crackling fire. The Canadian Badlands are full of one-of-a-kind stories, characters, and attractions just waiting to be experienced.
