Bike your way through Canada

posted June 30, 2017


Did you know that Canada is one of the very best places to go cycling? If not, it’s time to find out why! With snow-capped mountain peaks and turquoise lakes, you can ride off-the-beaten tracks to locations with inspiring views that show off the highlights of Canada. With Canada celebrating its 150th birthday, it really is the perfect year to embark on an adventurous bike tour in Canada.

Where to eat

You didn’t think we weren’t going to feed our adventurous families, did you? We know we’re boasting, but Canada has some of the best brasseries, diners, coffee shops, maple stops and markets in the world. Try one of Vancouver’s most charming brunch spots, Café Medina for a smashed avocado pit-stop or crispy, golden, maple-glazed waffles – they’ve got it all. Make your dining experience fun for everyone by spending an evening out with the kids in Vancouver’s Chinatown – North America’s third largest!

Where to stay

We love tailoring every experience to the individual, so you have the choice of a variety of inns, hotels, campsites or ranches to guarantee a tranquil rest for you and your family after your cycling adventures. Why not try a truly authentic experience with Sierra West Cabins and Ranch Vacations? Nestled near the base of the majestic Canadian Rockies is this working cattle ranch, where you can bond with the whole family through horseback riding tours and adventures in the great outdoors.

Mature Moments – Cruise through Canada on our scenic cycling route

We love staying active in the great outdoors, but what’s the best way to do it? In a peaceful, safe and stimulating way, with our Alaskan Highlights Tour. Ride through Anchorage, the gateway to Alaska’s national parks, and enjoy the breath-taking landscapes, glaciers and wildlife as you cycle into the wilderness. After arriving in Anchorage, you’ll have the pleasure of touring through the quaint town of Talkeetna, spectacular Denali National Park, the Alaska Range mountains, remote Wrangell-St Elias National Park, and the port towns of Valdez and Seward. Enjoy quality time with your travel companions on a spectacular five-hour wildlife cruise in Kenai Fjords National Park and indulge in Alaska’s renowned king salmon while you’re there.

Alaska’s variety of cycling routes, from smooth trails to challenging tracks, makes it one of the most ideal terrains. Coast along the easy Power Line Trail or embark on Kinkaid Park’s challenging new world-class single track. Enjoy the scenery of steep valleys, glaciers and mountains, with the chance to spot wildlife from eagles to whales along the way.

Where to eat

What better way to reward yourself for your ride than dining in Alaska’s most highly-recommended fish restaurant; The Cookery? We’re tempted to cycle there just to feast on their delicious salmon, halibut and oysters! Cocktails too, please.

Tonight we have fresh halibut and Copper River reds!! Also some shrimp cakes lurking in the back ground….

Arriving in Vancouver, experienced cyclists will have the opportunity to ride to Whistler on the famous Gold Rush mountain bike trail, a challenging route complete with drops and jumps. Not for wimps. After a day in Whistler you’ll travel to some of Canada’s most treasured landscapes: Wells Gray Provincial Park and Jasper National Park. We’ve organised fly drives to take you across the longest stretches so you can explore the parks with tons of energy. Explore true Canadian wilderness by delving further into the backcountry in Jasper National Park on the paved cycling trails. After you have indulged in the beautiful sights of Lake Louise and Banff National Park, head back into BC and finish up in the wine-making region of the Okanagan Valley.
