Interpretive Tour Programs

Dinosaur Provincial Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most of the park is a Natural Preserve.  To protect the Natural Preserve and to ensure public safety, access is ONLY by guided interpretive programs.  

We have a variety of interpretive programs for all ages - outdoors or inside, easy or strenuous, from less than one hour to multi-day.  

Please note that pets are NOT allowed on interpretive programs or in the Park Visitor Centre. Refer to our Pets in the Park info sheet.

As well as our guided programs, there are lots of great things to do on your own in the park.
