The Rocky Mountains create a dramatic backdrop for bicycle tours in Alberta and British Columbia.
Cycling on the Icefields Parkway between Jasper and Banff is divine, as is hiking in the alpine meadows and national park trails along the same route. A little further west, cycling along the Kettle Valley Railway to Okanagan wineries makes a great bicycle holiday. Much of the route is traffic-free, and you can cool off in Okanagan Lake near Penticton. If you prefer coastal scenery, Vancouver Island is a magical place for a bike tour or a walking holiday, and the old growth forests here add some primal pleasure to the inland parts.
Six nights; six days of cycling, with opportunities for hiking and extras. Most of this bike tour follows the Kettle Valley Rail Trail past dozens of excellent vineyards and wineries, and across 18 trestles.
