Program

Day 1: Calgary (25 kilometers / 15 miles / 0.25 hour riding time)

After arriving at Calgary International Airport, you will be met at the airport and shuttled to your hotel to check in and then to pick up your bike. Today is set aside to allow you to settle in and rest up before the adventure begins tomorrow.

Day 2: Calgary to Waterton National Park (430 kilometers / 266 miles / 4.5 hours riding time)

Leaving your hotel and the city behind you, you will head out into the foothills that run south alongside the Rocky Mountains. Stopping for breaks and lunch on the way to allow you to settle into the tour and grab some photos of the amazing scenery. The roads are in good condition and along the way, you will enjoy stops to visit an RCMP fort/Museum and interpretive center showing how the early inhabitants of the prairies lived.

The ride will end at the peaceful mountain town of Waterton for the night, where you are surrounded by mountains and wildlife.

Day 3: Waterton to Nelson (269 kilometers / 166 miles / 3.5 hours riding time)

After a western breakfast, you will ride into the mountains on well-maintained roads, alongside clear lakes, with trees down to the edge of the roads in places. As you climb higher, the mountains become more rugged. Crossing a mountain lake by ferry brings you to your stop for the night.

Day 4: Nelson to Kelowna (392 kilometers / 242 miles / 4 hours riding time)

Today will take you on some wild roads, through wide-open mountain countryside. This is "big sky" country where you can see forever while enjoying the ride. Tight turns take you down into lake country and up to mountain meadows. Today is a wild ride from start to finish, with lots of photo stops.

Day 5: Kelowna (rest day)

Today is a free day for you to catch up on all those important things like sorting out photos, writing down all the key points and even getting that pesky laundry taken care of. Maybe enjoy exploring the local area.

Day 6: Kelowna to Radium Hot Springs (462 kilometers / 286 miles / 5 hours riding time)

Head out in the clear morning and ride north and then east to follow the main Trans-Canada Highway for a while through lush mountain forests before turning south before stopping for the night in a sleepy mountain town. A soak in the hot pools followed by a relaxing dinner ends a great day.

Day 7: Radium Hot Springs to Calgary (309 kilometers / 191 miles / 3.5 hours riding time)

Leaving town and heading east takes you into world-famous Banff National Park towards the township of Banff. Stops along the way showcase these massive mountains and put you in the center of one of the most beautiful parts of the Canadian Rocky’s. This is a low mileage day; however, with the numerous stops made, it is a full day.

Leaving the park and following the highway brings you back to Calgary for your stop for the day. A group farewell dinner brings this day to the pleasant close.

Day 8: Hotel to the airport via bike rental location

After a relaxing breakfast, you will catch your shuttle to the airport. This shuttle ride is filled with talk about the adventure you’ve just had and the fun experienced.
