Description

Canada's showcase region in the Wild West. The California of the far north, so to speak. With great highways through the Rockies along majestic three-thousand-meter peaks and the eternal ice of the glaciers in the east. Idyllic lakes, lush fauna, and successful fruit and wine plantations in the south.

On selected touring machines with a roadbook in hand and a tour guide at your side, you will embark on a discovery tour through the vast countryside. A great round to many highlights of the Canadian west. The luggage rides comfortably in the van behind, the tour guide too. Just in case, he rides last, so that everyone can be helped quickly. Along the way, there are plenty of opportunities to seek out the highlights of the British Columbia region. These are mostly scenic in the Rocky Mountains. But if you're a little lucky, you might even see a bear or a moose.

You will experience the metropolis Vancouver, the spectacular Rocky Mountains, the beauty of Vancouver Island, several national parks, and the unique wildlife (brown bears, whales, grizzly bears, moose, and many more)! This diversity and the fast contrasts make motorcycling in Western Canada surprising, curve after curve. For this tour, you can choose from Canada's most extensive selection of outstanding motorcycles from BMW, Suzuki, Ducati, Triumph, Yamaha, or Honda. A German-speaking guide will accompany you, take care of the luggage transported in the escort vehicle, be at your disposal for all questions about the country and its people at any time and show you the most beautiful corners and spectacular motorcycle routes of Western Canada during the course of the tour! You will stay in carefully selected lodges, resorts, and hotels of the upper-middle class!

Route itinerary (subject to change):

DAY 1: Arrival Vancouver

Today all participants of the tour arrive. In the evening, a first get-to-know-you dinner (at own expense) and first information meeting are planned.

Overnight stay in Vancouver

-

DAY 2: Free day in Vancouver, sightseeing:

Today is the first of all time to get to know the impressive metropolis of Vancouver a little better. And to work off any jet lag that may be present. In addition, in the course of the afternoon, the formalities for taking over the motorcycle will be taken care of.

Overnight stay in Vancouver

-

DAY 3: Vancouver - Penticton: approx. 400 km

On today's first leg, the Trans Canada Highway takes you eastward into the interior of the country. You follow the Fraser River, ride through the Sunshine Valley and stop in the village of Hope. The tour follows the former Gold Rush Trail eastward, from Hope to Princeton and on to Lake Okanagan, on whose shore Penticton is located.

Overnight in Penticton.

-

DAY 4: Penticton - Nelson: approx. 330 km

Continuing east, we ride close to the U.S. border through the fertile wine country and Gladstone Prov. Park. Along the foothills of Kootenay Lake, we reach Nelson in the late afternoon.

Overnight stay in Nelson

-

DAY 5: Nelson-Revelstoke: approx. 280 km

The landscape today will be recognizably "Canadian". First, you ride along the shore of Lake Kootenay, enjoy great views up to Kaslo before you meander along the winding road to New Denver. If you feel like it, we recommend a side trip to Slocan Beach. By the way, here in the region not rare "locals" - grizzly bears! In Naskup, you will take the ferry to Shelter Bay and from there you will ride the last part of the way along Arrow Lake.

Overnight stay in Revelstoke.

-

DAY 6: Revelstoke - Lake Louise: approx. 230 km

Today's stage takes you into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Over the Rogers Pass (here a stop at the Monument is worthwhile) you reach the Yoho National Park, where we make a detour to the beautiful Emerald Lake and the 'Natural Bridge'. We pass Kicking Horse Pass on the way to Lake Louise. The famous lake is best visited this evening or first thing in the morning and thus outside the most popular times. It is also worthwhile to make a detour to Lake Moraine, which is unjustly overshadowed by the more famous Lake Louise.

Overnight stay in Lake Louise.

-

DAY 7: Lake Louise - Jasper: approx. 400 km

Today's stage is truly magnificent. The Icefield Parkway leads us right through the Rocky Mountains! Not very curvy but surrounded by a mighty mountain range of glaciers and imposing massifs. In addition, there are numerous detours to spectacularly located lakes such as Hector or Peyto Lake. After 2/3 of the stage, you can do the Icefield Skywalk, visit the Athabasca and/or Sunwapta Falls.

After an impressive stage, we will spend the night in Jasper.

-

DAY 8: Free day in Jasper

Today you can review the numerous impressions of the last days - and also collect new ones. If you want to make a day trip, a ride through Jasper National Park to Lake Maligne including a visit to the really deep Maligne Gorge is worthwhile! Jasper invites you to a leisurely stroll, the surrounding mountains will not let you forget that you are in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

Overnight stay in Jasper

-

DAY 9: Jasper - Kamloops: approx. 420 km

After the quiet day yesterday, today we have a longer bridging stage. We leave the Rocky Mountains and the state of Alberta and ride first through Mt. Robson National Park - of course not without stopping at the Lookout and taking lots of pictures. The view is great when the weather is right! Until Kamloops, we ride through wooded and - admittedly - compared to the last day's rather less exciting landscapes. But only today...

Overnight stay in Kamloops.

-

DAY 10: Kamloops - Whistler: approx. 300 km

Today spectacular motorcycle routes await us again and with the Duffy Lake Road a very special highlight of the tour! But first, you ride along the shores of Lake Kamloops, meet the Fraser River again and reach Lillooet at noon. Here a stop is worthwhile - for refreshment before the unbelievable curves of the Duffy Lake Road are waiting for you! In the early evening, we reach Whistler.

Overnight stay in Whistler.

-

DAY 11: Whistler - Ucluelet (Vancouver Island): approx. 350 km

On the Sea-to-Sky Highway, you ride towards the ferry that will take you to Vancouver Island. The crossing impresses with the view of numerous bays and is often accompanied by dolphins. Once on Vancouver Island, a motorcycling highlight awaits you: the ride through the Pacific Rim National Park! 140km of bend after bend and finally the beautiful Pacific beaches. Depending on the season, you can observe gray and killer whales in addition to sea lions in the numerous bays. Even bears can be seen from time to time!

Overnight stay in Ucluelet

-

DAY 12: Free day in Ucluelet: at leisure

Today you have the opportunity to go on an exciting whale watching tour - sightings of orcas are not uncommon here! You can also take a day tour or just do nothing!

Overnight once again in Ucluelet.

-

DAY 13: Ucluelet - Victoria: approx. 430 km

Today we start early to ride to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. If necessary, we will take the small side route via Lake Cowichan and Jordann River. In the afternoon we reach Victoria. The British influence cannot be overlooked in this picturesque city with its striking buildings and many flower gardens.

Overnight stay in Victoria

-

DAY 14: Victoria - Vancouver: approx. 70 km

In the morning you should take your time for this picture book city, in which the British influence is unmistakable. On the way to the ferry, you will pass Butchard Gardens, a more than 100 years old, paradise-like botanical garden - also worth a visit! In the afternoon you will take the ferry to the Canadian mainland.

Overnight stay in Vancouver

-

DAY 15: Departure from Vancouver

Today, unfortunately, is already the end of your Canadian trip - unless you would like a few extra days in this fascinating city, which can rightly count itself among the most beautiful metropolises in the world.
