Tour Options

Indoor and Outdoor Tours Available

Ancient Echoes Interpretive Centre offers both indoor and outdoor tours during the summer season from May through August 30th. We also offer indoor tours in the fall and winter season. Indoor tours include our paleo-geology exhibit, our main exhibit room, Prairie View Gallery, library, and seasonal exhibits. Our outdoor tours include short or long tours through the Coal Mine Ravine. The longer tours take visitors to the many petroglyphs, a turtle effigy, ceremonial circles, and other sacred sites. We suggest that visitors chose their outdoor tour length based on their physical strength and endurance. Tours can be arranged to last as short as 20 minutes to as long as four hours in the summer season. The choice is yours. The Coal Mine Ravine is made up of numerous hills and valleys, so choosing a tour length that suits your physical stamina is a must. We're happy to accommodate you in any way we can.

What to Wear

The Coal Mine Ravine can be quite hot in the summer time, so its best to dress in layers that can be removed if temperatures rise. Additionally, there is a good deal of natural foliage and cactus in the ravine. We recommend sensible walking shoes at all times. Flip flops, sandals, bare feet, and heels are not suitable footwear for hiking in the hills and can result in injury.

What to Bring

Visitors should bring sun block, mosquito repellent, and water on their tours. We do sell bottled water at the Centre for those who wish to purchase it.

Booking a Tour

Ancient Echoes does have staff onsite during the summer season from May to August 30th. You are welcome to drop in for tours at any time. Nonetheless, it is best to book ahead if you know in advance that you are coming. This way we can ensure we have a staff person available to tour you on your arrival. This will overcome wait times. To pre-book your tour, please call us.
