Visitors to Alberta Benefit from Added Coverage of GyPSy Guide Network

GyPSy Guide has announced further expansions to its Alto Award winning Guided Self-Drive Tour Network in Alberta.   

Drumheller and Alberta SW and Waterton, two of Alberta’s most outstanding regions for both beauty and diverse visitor experiences, have been added to the current tour network, increasing the number of point of interest activation locations to more than 2,500 across Alberta.   

Drumheller is connected to Highway 2 using route 9/72 through Beiseker. Along the way visitors enjoy an entertaining warm up on geology and palaeontology to prepare for a fascinating visit to Canada’s Dinosaur Capital.  From Drumheller there are 2 loops from the town to follow, the Dinosaur Trail and the Hoodoos Trail.  Each drive offers an impressive variety of natural impressive views at places like the Hoodoos, Orkney Viewpoint and Horseshoe Canyon, mixed with fascinating attractions provide insight into past and present at the Atlas Coal Mine, Wayne, the World’s Biggest Little Church and the Rosedale Suspension Bridge.  And for many the highlight will of course be the world class Royal Tyrrell Museum. Each loop takes about 2 hours to drive but more time is recommended to make numerous photo-stops and visits. There are 120+ commentary points on the tour.   

Leaving Drumheller, driving visitors can enjoy commentary on 2 routes.  Return to Highway 2 through Beiseker and a whole new series of stories and commentary or visit pretty Rosebud and continue towards Calgary Airport to connect to the network of commentary to Calgary downtown, Waterton or Banff and the Canadian Rockies.
