This tour is self driven and available all year round, although seasonal hours may affect some stops.

Heartland is an iconic Canadian TV show that covers the highs and lows of a ranching family. Since 2007, the foothills have been the filming location for this long-running CBC drama. This version of the tour will take you from downtown Hudson (aka High River) and through the foothills back to Calgary.

This tour starts off with a stop at the unofficial home of Heartland, the Museum of The Highwood. This historic Canadian Pacific Railway station houses an exhibit featuring costumes, props, pictures, and even a menu from Maggie's Diner. It also offers knowledgeable staff for Heartland insights and tour recommendations, as well as the opportunity to test your knowledge with a Heartland quiz or pick up your favourite souvenirs.

A walk in any direction will show more Heartland hot spots, from mementos available at Walkers Western Wear and Olive & Finch, to strolling down 3rd to visit the fictional downtown of Hudson and cafe Maggie's Diner.

While 4th avenue also offers some Heartland history, you'll most likely want to head over to George Lane Park to relive the action filmed at the red gazebo within its boundaries.

Hoping back in your vehicle, it's time to saddle up and venture deeper into the foothills to and some unique filming locations for iconic scenes in the show. Driving north from High River via Okotoks, your next stop will be at Anchor D where when booking the John Ware trip. This horseback ride takes you along a trail that overlooks areas where home ranch scenes are filmed and offers the added bonus of incredible panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains.

After coming down off your Heartland high horse, you'll drive over to the Millarville Racetrack, home to one of the foothills' best farmers' markets (Saturdays from June to October) and also home to all of the rodeo, horse racing, and green/white stable scenes. Mere minutes away, you can next stop at the Millarville Church, a beautiful log chapel where Lou's wedding took place.

Moving along, your next stop will be at the beautiful Leighton Art Centre. While some filming has been done here, a stop for the art, history and view are worth it all on their own.

Last but not least, a stop at Spruce Meadows showcases some additional filming locations and brings you back to the southwest edge of Calgary.

This tour can also be done in reverse, and with or without the horses.
