If your time or budget is limited, then our 8-day Ride the Rockies motorcycle tour offers a taste of the best riding in the central and southern Canadian Rockies. You will ride the dramatic Sea to Sky highway, then deep into the interior of British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains. Curve after curve leads you through famous places such as Whistler, Kamloops, Revelstoke, The Kootenay Pass and Rossland. Enjoy miles of quiet, scenic mountain routes, high passes, great accommodation and ample time to take photos and enjoy optional activities like flight-seeing, rafting or hiking. This tour is short but sweet and will surely leave you wanting more!
Total distance c. 1960 km
We will transfer you by private taxi to our tour hotel. The remainder of the day is yours to explore the city highlights.
After breakfast you collect your motorcycle and the adventure starts. Head for the Capilano Suspension Bridge on the North Shore. Then ride the famous ‘Sea to Sky’ highway to the alpine resort of Whistler. The quiet Duffey Lake Road leads across the scenic Coastal Mountains to the warm and dry high sierra. Lillooet is a small native community set on the banks of the Fraser River and an interesting place to stop before you reach your overnight stay in Cache Creek.
The Trans-Canada Highway gives you two riding options into the BC interior, east along the South Thompson Valley or south to the scenic ‘cowboy country’ of the Nicola Valley and the vineyards of the Okanagan. Both routes take you to Kamloops, a large regional centre with an interesting native museum. We love the quieter highways that take you away from the traffic along quieter valleys and lakes. Then ride along Shushwap Lake into the rugged Monashee Mountains, where the friendly town of Revelstoke awaits.
Free day. Start with a scenic 26-km hairpin ride to the top of Mt Revelstoke National Park, and explore the glaciers, mountain roads and cedar forests of Glacier National Park. You can also go canoeing, hiking or flightseeing.
Without a doubt the best day's riding. High mountain passes, the many lakes of the ‘Kootenays’, Glacier National Park, the historic town of Golden, the hot springs at Radium and the mighty Columbia River, and perhaps visit the restored 1890s pioneer town of Fort Steel, before you reach Cranbrook, also home to the Canadian Railways Museum.
There’s time to take a look around Cranbrook before heading west. A choice of routes offer a ride through the Selkirk Mountains to the lovely lakeside town of Nelson or a twisty, scenic ride, along the Kootenay Lake to Kootenay Bay, where a 45 minute ferry crossing brings you on perhaps a quieter and more scenic route to Nelson. Nelson is popular with artists and has a rich gold-mining history or, of course, you can just enjoy a shorter relaxing ride to Rossland, the highest town in Canada.
Follow an old trade route, the Dewdney Trail today, a lovely ride through the mountains, taking in Gladstone Provincial Park and Christina along the way. A steep descent down Anarchist Mountain (no we don’t make up these names!) brings you to Osoyoos, the warmest spot in Canada. Explore Canada’s wine country this afternoon, maybe prebook a winery tour.
Make an early start on your last day on the road. From Osoyoos the road winds along the Similkameen River into the forests of the Cascade Mountains. This area is known for winemaking growing high quality fruit and vegetables, and horse breeding. The small mining town of Princeton offers a glimpse into the history of Southern BC with no less than 6 ghost towns in the area. In the afternoon, travel through the Cascade Provincial Park to Hope, where Stallone's hit First Blood was filmed. See the historic Othello Tunnels here then visit the heritage centre at Fort Langley, before riding down the Fraser Valley to Vancouver to return your bike.
