This is our 3rd Bicycle Adventures trip and each has been extraordinary in every way. I particularly love how personal the trips are, the group size and how much interaction there is with our guides. Hard not to love the rides, everywhere you looked was breathtaking.

National Parks on This Tour: Banff National Park | Jasper National Park

Show All
DAY 1

Meet in Edmonton. Bicycle quiet rural roads into Jasper National Park, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

Meet us in Edmonton, Alberta’s capital. We'll whisk you away into the heart of the Canadian Rockies, where views become more and more rugged and glorious. Pedal quiet rural roads into Jasper National Park, the largest and most northerly of the Canadian Rocky Mountain national parks, a vast wilderness of peaks, glaciers, deep forests, and clear lakes. Pedal in the shadow of the Maligne Mountain range, savoring sister Lakes Edith and Annette, Beuvert Lake, and Old Fort Point along the way. Tonight’s destination is the low-key turn-of-the-century railroad town and fur trading post Jasper township. 

DAY 2

Ride south along the Athabasca River and the glorious Icefields Parkway.

Ride south along a scenic byway on the banks of the Athabasca River. Pause for a quick hike and wonder at the strength of Athabasca Falls, where the opaque glacial melt plunges 82 feet (25 m) into a narrow gorge. Continue following the Athabasca upriver via the Icefields Parkway to quaint Sunwapta Falls Resort, our lodging for tonight. 

DAY 3

Bike the Columbia Icefields - a panorama of eight magnificent glaciers fringed with summer wildflowers.

Bicycle the Columbia Icefields today – a spectacular panorama of ice-blanketed hillsides edged with summer wildflowers. Visit eggshell blue Peyto Lake as you make your way to the crown of icefields. Marvel at the Columbia Icefield, which covers an area of 200-plus miles and is in places nearly 1,000 feet deep. Today you’ll bike past eight major glaciers including the Athabasca, Dome and Stutfield Glaciers, all receding but still magnificently powerful. Explore the Columbia Icefields’ fascinating visitor’s center. Stay tonight at The Crossing, nestled at the base of towering Mt. Wilson.   

DAY 4

Ride the majestic Icefields Parkway past Cirrus Mountain and Bow Lake. Stay at Lake Louise's Deer Lodge.

Today, ride the Icefields Parkway, which National Geographic calls “a great swath of sensational country.” The Parkway rolls along through densely forested hillsides and river-strewn valleys crested by sparkling glaciers and snowfields. Admire the one-hundred-plus glaciers visible from this famous parkway paralleling the Continental Divide. Stop to see the Weeping Wall's 330-foot plunge down Cirrus Mountain. Bicycle past Crowfoot Glacier and Bow Lake, which English explorer Jimmy Simpson called ‘the most beautiful thing I've seen in Canada.’ Be amazed at the unusual turquoise color of all the lakes here: it's caused by the prevalence of suspended glacial ‘rock flour.' The color makes for stunning photos. Stay the next two nights at Lake Louise’s Deer Lodge. 

DAY 5

Explore Lake Louise: hike to the teahouses or the Plain of Six Glaciers, take a guided ride...and/or head to the spa for a massage.

Take a few minutes’ walk outside your lodging to take in the beauty of UNESCO World Heritage Site Lake Louise. Hike along the wooded shores of the lake, then up to one of the teahouses nestled into the forested hillside. Continue if you like, past the tree line to a stunning 360-degree view of the Plain of Six Glaciers soaring above with the turquoise waters of Lake Louise shining below. Go for a guided ride in the nearby region. Indulge in a massage at the spa at Chateau Lake Louise, or explore the shops at Lake Louise village. 

DAY 6

Ride peaceful, gorgeous Bow Valley Parkway. Hike to Johnston Canyon. Take a victory lap on the Kananaskis Trail before heading to Calgary for your homeward journey.

Enjoy a final, easy bike ride along peaceful Bow Valley Parkway, one of the most scenic rides in what is already an incredibly scenic area. Watch for elk, moose and other big-game wildlife among meadows and forests of aspen and lodgepole pine. Hike to Johnston Canyon, a deep glacier-carved limestone bowl filled with plunging waterfalls and curving rock wells. After a picnic lunch at Cascade Ponds, shuttle to the Kananaskis Trail for a victory lap on the highest paved road in all of Canada before heading to Calgary International Airport for your trip home.
