Trip Info

Have you ever wondered what roamed northern British Columbia 75 million years ago?  Were there large armoured Ankylosaurs or Hadrosaurs, or perhaps plant eating Ornithopods? You can discover the answers to these questions at University of Northern British Columbia’s five-day Dinosaur Detective field tour at Tumbler Ridge, B.C.

Participants will learn techniques used to find, remove, prepare and protect fossils found in this region and embark on prospecting trip to Dinosaur Gorge. You will also hike into some of the region’s most geologically unique areas including Stone Corral, The Shipyard and Titanic. Finish off the trip with a jet boat ride on the Murray River to view some of the many cascading falls in this waterfall capital of the north.

Your adventure awaits!
