This is an adventure for people who really like to ride! The revitalizing mountain air is cool, clear, and so magical that on your bike, you will tingle with appreciation, and will shout with sheer delight at the climbs and descents. Beginning at a beautiful lodge tucked away in the foothills of the International Peace Park, you will spend three days exploring the scenic Waterton Lakes National Park before riding on to experience the periphery of the Crows Nest Pass and astonishing Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump – a testament to Blackfoot culture and survival on the prairie. After enjoying this area on foot and by bike, you will ride north along the Cowboy Trail to the quiet roads of the Kananaskis area, the favourite retreat for locals, who often call it the most beautiful part of the mountains.
You will be able to ride over Highwood Pass (the highest paved pass of the Rockies) and descend for a night’s well-earned rest in the Kananskis Valley before a final morning transfer to the mountain town of Banff, a perfect place to continue your exploration, to join our ride between Banff and Jasper, or to take advantage of an optional transfer back to Calgary.
If you have been on tour with us in the last 3 years, you will receive a 5% discount as a returning guest.
