Cycling Jasper to Waterton through three National Parks over twelve days is the ultimate cycling tour in Western Canada. An incredible setting in which to challenge yourself physically and mentally yet find the ability to let go and immerse yourself in the rejuvenation of the Rockies.
The tour begins with a few leisurely rides and some sightseeing or activities in and around Jasper National Park and the relaxed mountain town of Jasper. On day 3 we’ll start our journey on the world famous Icefields Parkway. This relaxing introduction will warm you up nicely for the longer and more challenging days ahead. The next two days see us cross into Banff National Park and visit the iconic Lake Louise. The final day of riding leading up to a well deserved rest day finishes spectacularly as we cruise into Banff on the undulating Bow Valley Parkway and the Legacy trail into Canmore.
After taking a rest day to visit all the sights and attractions in Banff and Canmore we’ll continue through Kananaskis Country and over the highest paved road in Canada to the cowboy town of Longview. We then spend the last two days of the tour rolling over undulating prairie hills with views of the Rockies off to the west. We end up finishing the tour back in the mountains again in Waterton National Park.
The mountain scenery is truly breathtaking, and the slower pace offered by the bicycle means there is ample time to appreciate it. You’ll take in the views, snap lots of photos, have a few rest breaks – and we’ll still arrive at our nightly destinations with time to spare. Relax in the evenings with a hot bath or a beverage enjoyed in the blaze of a mountain sunset or explore the nearby sights and views on foot. Staying in the unique and cozy hotels along the way will give you the extra comfort each night that you deserve. You’ve worked hard during the day, and we love giving you time to pamper yourself in the evening. Total tour distance: 726 km +
