Our 15-day Mountain Roads motorcycle tour has proved over the years to be our most popular self-guided tour of the Canadian West. The route is designed to take you over the most scenic mountain roads of Western Canada and the Rockies. Depart from Vancouver and head east to the warm fruit and wine regions of the interior. Continue via Revelstoke, the Kootenay lakes and across the continental divide to Banff. Then discover the natural beauty and wildlife of the majestic Rocky Mountains and Yoho, Banff, and Jasper National Parks. Visit the tumbling falls in Wells Gray Park and cross the rugged Coastal Mountains to Whistler and scenic, vibrant Vancouver. Stay in cosy lodges and hotels, and enjoy the true hospitality of the West in an unforgettable two weeks.
This tour can also start/finish in Calgary on our Authorised Harley-Davidson rental motorcycles – please ask for prices.
