Join this 15-day motorbike tour with USA on Wheels. Starting point of this impressive motorcycle tour through the Canadian Rockies is from Seattle, USA. Through the states of Montana and Idaho, you will cross Canada's border with two wheels. Enjoy and get the excitement of endless roller coaster roads and untouched nature for the ultimate motorbike adventure!
During your journey, you will stay in good quality hotels, which will be reserved before departure. The room will be in a standard twin / double room accommodation. You can opt for a private room for an additional single supplement. All rooms will include en-suite bathroom with shower or bath facilities, television, and air conditioning. Most hotels will also have a pool.
Upon arrival in Seattle, you will be taken to your airport hotel. You will have time to freshen up, after which the team leader will talk to you through the practicalities of the trip in the hotel bar while you enjoy a well-deserved drink.
In the morning, your motorbikes will be brought to the hotel; let the ride begin! You will soon be greeted by that holiday feeling as you ride through the beautiful Mount Rainier National Park and view the highest volcano in the Cascade Range. The destination is Wenatchee.
You will ride through the Colville Indian Reservation and forest in Washington state, the most northwestern state of the USA. Crossing the Columbia River by ferry, you will ride on through lovely countryside to your night accommodation in Colville.
Along the Pend Oreille River, you will enter the state of Idaho. You can totally relax along the deserted roads through the Flathead Indian Reservation, home to three Indian tribes; the Bitterroot Salish, the Kootenai, and the Pend d'Oreilles who all lived off hunting buffalos and salmon fishing.
Today, you will ride along the banks of Lake Pend Oreille in the state of Idaho and enjoy stunning vistas and Kodak moments. The lake stretches across 65 miles and is 1100-feet deep in some places, making it one of the deepest lakes in the USA. This lake is home to many types of fish; there is a large population of the rainbow trout here. Perhaps you will find one on your plate for dinner!
After an early start through the Logan Pass, you will reach the Glacier National Park with its many stunning mountain passes and dozens of big and small lakes. In the prehistoric state of Montana, you will cross the border into Canada. Tonight's accommodation is in Fernie, a nice little ski resort.
From the Canadian state of British Columbia, you will ride on to Kootenay National Park. The natural beauty of this place is overwhelming. On some days, the lakes are as blue as the sky and on the other days, a deep jade green. It calls for many viewpoint's stops. Today's destination is the well-known winter sports resort of Banff, which is surrounded by glaciers.
Today will be another day you will never forget; the Columbia Icefield Highway will further take you through the Canadian Rockies. Despite it being a highway, you will encounter a low amount of traffic. Along the way, you will pass spectacular snow-topped mountains, the famous Lake Louise, and green forests, but watch out for the grizzlies! You will stay for the night in Jasper, a quiet and charming village with plenty of Native Indian culture.
Today, you will descend, leaving the mountains behind you, riding a great deal through the forested countryside. You will notice a lot of log-houses along the way; 100 Mile House is home to this log-house industry.
Riding through small villages, you will reach Whistler, the most well-known winter sports resort. It was named so after the wind that whistles through the mountain tops on stormy days. If you love riding down bendy roads, this will seem like paradise. After a short break, you will carry on to Lions Gate Bridge, taking you to Vancouver. In the evening, you can enjoy a few drinks in the Gaslight District.
Fjords, all kinds of tiny islands, and even orcas and seals pop up as you take the ferry to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Keep your camera or camcorder at the ready!
Today, you will ride to Victoria, the capital of Vancouver Island. There will be ample time to explore this enjoyable, British-influenced town.
Early in the morning, you will take the ferry across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the USA. Once there, you can take your time riding down various winding roads. You may get a sore neck from not knowing where to look! On one side, you will see the stunning vistas over Olympic National Park, and on the other side, Hood Canal Dabob Bay. You will ride along the 101, the Pacific Coast Highway, which starts here and ends at the Mexican border.
To end this journey, you will have a free day in Seattle, nicknamed 'Emerald City' because of its nearby evergreen forests. Seattle is also famous for its coffee culture; it is home to the coffee chain Starbucks. You can take the time to visit the Pike Place Market or Seattle Aquarium. A visit to the magical Space Needle is also certainly worth it.
Early in the morning, the shuttle bus will take you to the airport for your flight home, but perhaps you don't want to go home yet! You do have the opportunity to extend your stay. Call USA on Wheels for more information who will be happy to assist you in organizing any additional wishes.
