08 Day West Canada Bicycle Tour
MTB#09 Western National Parks

This is a extraordinary bike tour of the Canadian Rockies. The splendor of two provinces is yours to intimately discover. Incorporating four World Heritage National Parks, you’ll travel 499 km/310 miles on this six-day true adventure, challenged by a wilderness most would consider insurmountable. Every day is a highlight as you confront mountain passes or relax in Radium Hot Springs and travel new distances to witness the immense miracle of the Columbia Icefields. Unsurpassed scenery may give way to a glimpse of unsuspecting denizen of the forest, so keep a keen eye as you cycle by mountain lakes, alpine forests and the rocky edges of rushing rivers. Truly the best of the Canadian west, this is the pinnacle of pedaling experiences. Note: Choice of Hotel/Camping Accommodation
