Thrills in Canada: Walking with gorgosaurus

See also

Attention dinosaur fans: Here's a chance to chum around with giant prehistoric beasts in one of their favorite stomping grounds. It's all yours – even if you can't tell a troodontidae from a gorgosaurus -- during a one-time-only tour of Canada's famous “dinosaur country” set for July 17-21 next year.

Called “Walking With Dinosaurs: A Journey Through Time,” the tour starts in Calgary and features stops at Dinosaur Provincial Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Drumheller (the heart of the Canada's prehistoric world), the Heritage Park Historical Village (Canada's largest living history museum) and the Calgary zoo (one of the world's top zoos for conservation research).

Helping you understand what you're seeing will be world-famous paleontologists and natural history experts. What's more, you'll take part in a fossil identification class and experiment with “green screen” technology and dinosaur animation.

The special tour, developed by BBC Earth, is being offered by Gibsonia, Pa.-based Frontiers Elegant Journeys.

Prices for the tour start at $3,190 per person, including lodging, most meals and ground transfers. You're on your own for flights to Calgary and back. Among major U.S. gateways with nonstop service to Calgary are Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Chicago O'Hare.

Tour participants might want to take a few extra days either before or after their dinosaur adventure to enjoy other attractions in the Calgary area such as Lake Louise or the Jasper and Banff National Parks.
