Tour description:

The motorcycle tour starts in Vancouver. The metropolis on the Pacific Ocean is repeatedly awarded as one of the most livable cities in the world. You will quickly discover why! First the route leads south-east, through the mighty Hells Gate Canyon, following the old gold-digger trails and making a stop at Lake Okangan and Kootenay Lake. On the top motorbike trails along Lake Kootenay you will see the typical Canada: deep blue lakes and mighty mountains surrounded by deep green forests. At Mt Brennan and around the Kokanee and Monashee Glaciers the chances of seeing grizzly bears are good! Via Rogers Pass we reach Yoho National Park, visit the Emerald Lakes, ride the Kicking Horse Pass and pass Lake Louise before reaching Banff.... and the heart of the Rocky Mountains! The Icefield Parkway enchants us on the way to Jasper, the stretch to Whistler is littered with countless lakes. On Vancouver Island the tour ends ... with the grand finale, consisting of magnificent nature, the possibility to watch whales and a motorcycling highlight: the ride through the Pacific Rim National Park!

For this motorcycle tour you can choose from Canada's most extensive selection of outstanding motorcycles from BMW, Suzuki, Ducati, Triumph, Yamaha or Honda. An English-speaking tour guide will accompany you, take care of your luggage in the support vehicle, be available at all times to answer all your questions about the country and its people, and show you the most beautiful corners and most spectacular motorcycle routes of Western Canada during the tour!

You will stay in carefully selected lodges, resorts and hotels of the upper middle class!
