The best adventures are the ones found off the beaten path and there’s no better place for these kinds of adventures than in Drumheller. If you’re craving weekend fun that’s sure to excite any age, there’s plenty to do in Drumheller with your family. Below are some suggestions of possible adventures you can cram into a weekend of nonstop fun.
1. Hike Past The Hoodoos
You wouldn’t be able to recognize the Canadian Badlands without these bad boys. These iconic pillars stand up to seven metres tall and are just as breathtaking in person as they are in photos. It’s an outdoor experience you won’t forget and you’ll be able to see them up close thanks to viewing platforms. The protected Hoodoo site is a no-brainer but you can also find smaller versions throughout the region as you hike with the fam through the Badlands.
2. Go For A Refreshing Splash at Rotary Spray Park
You can never take too many water breaks. Any excuse to go through cool water in the hot summer is a good one. One of the best spots for a quick break from the Drumheller heat is Rotary Spray Park. There’s plenty of green park space available for impromptu picnics or sun tanning sessions. The water cannons and fountains are perfect if the family is in serious need of some cool-down time.
3. Take a Selfie at the Little Church
Over the years, Drumheller’s Little Church has become a must-see location.. on the condition that you must be in a group smaller than six people. This Little Church is appropriately titled – big enough for only six people! See if you can squeeze your family in and then take some fun selfies outside the church, situated in the Badlands. When was the last time you got to play giant in a tiny church?
