Hiking & Cycling Adventures in Western Canada
Alberta and British Columbia are world famous for bicycle touring and hiking trips, for good reason: They have some of the world's most attractive scenery, and well-developed routes. The Icefields Parkway between Jasper and Banff, Alberta, is an awe-inspiring bicycle ride, and the number of hikes into the surrounding mountains makes it difficult to choose what walks to do in just one week. Our new hiking tour of Southern Vancouver Island takes you to a variety of wilderness and cultural walks in super natural places. This part of the world is abundantly wild, and is home to many large animals, including moose, elk, bear, whales, eagles, and numerous other fascinating creatures with whom we share the beauty. These are routes you must include in your life experience!
