This is an amazing tour! Looking at the Hoodoos of Alberta Badlands makes my heart feel so proud that I have seen this natural rock formation. I really can't believe how beautiful this place is. This is located in Drumheller but be careful to follow the road sign or your GPS, we almost missed this place without knowing that we... More

Worth the stop if touring the Badlands and its FREE with lots of parking! Wear good runners or hiking shoes to go to the top ( kids & teenagers love the climb!) great photo opportunities! Washrooms on site, but nothing else touristy. Really cool!

The geology is interesting. The mushroom shapes are very unusual. The one thing missing could be more color. If you had the chance to see the rose-tinted formations in the American Southwest, the ones in Drumheller could be a little... disappointing. But visually the eroded rocks and melting landscape still present great visual opportunities for artists in all mediums.

The hoodoos are WAY smaller than I imagined, but very scenic and unusual. The marked area has some good viewing platforms and sturdy steps leading to the "main" hoodoos, but the whole area is fairly easy to scramble around, even (and especially) for active children. Picnic area could be a little nicer, and benches for tired viewers to wait for... More

You do not have to plan hours for your stay but it is really funny to see this odd stone formations on your way from Calgary to Drumheller. Nice when the sun is setting or rising.

These are natural structures but they are not grand canyon or Niagara. Much smaller in size but are interesting all the same. Its surely a wonder of nature. There are 6-7 of them. collected in a place. It may be a hour to 3 hours max trip unless you are researching Hoodoos. There are a no. of other places of... More

These formations are really cool to see. When we were kids....a LONG time ago, my parents took us there a few times and you could sit on the hoodoos back then for photos. Now they have them fenced off with a walking path around it, which is fantastic! That way all of our future generations can enjoy what we did.... More

The site and hoodoos were smaller than we expected, there were also lots of people. Stop and have a look, take a few pictures, but you only need 30 minutes for this free attraction.
