Tour Itinerary


Start and End in Calgary Alberta

Calgary to Banff

Leaving Calgary we will ride towards Banff, and it is a short riding day, so you will have time to dally in this chic modern village with a past that is part of the history of the old west. We'll ride towards Vermillion Pass and Radium Hot Springs.

At Radium we are in the Rocky Mountain Trench, a long basin that includes part of the Canadian portion of the Columbia River. We then follow the Columbia River as it flows north. Just past Columbia Lake, we follow the Kootenay River to Lake Koocanusa (kootenay-canada-usa).

From there the Kootenay River goes south to the U.S. and the Elk River northeast to Fernie.

Fernie to Waterton Lakes

From Fernie we'll travel to Sparwood and the the Crowsnest Pass where we'll cross the the B.C. — Alberta boundary. We skirt past ranchland to get to Waterton National Park, which is at the U.S. border.
