Active Adventure

This is an adventure for people who really like to ride! The revitalizing mountain air is cool, clear, and so magical that on your bike, you will tingle with appreciation, and will shout with sheer delight at the climbs and descents. Beginning at a beautiful lodge tucked away in the foothills of the International Peace Park, you will spend three days exploring the scenic Waterton Lakes National Park before riding on to experience the periphery of the Crows Nest Pass and astonishing Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump a testament to Blackfoot culture and survival on the prairie. After enjoying this area on foot and by bike, you will ride north along the Cowboy Trail to the quiet roads of the Kananaskis area, a favourite retreat for locals, who often call it the most beautiful part of the mountains. You will be able to ride over Highwood Pass (the highest paved pass of the Rockies) and descend for a night's well-earned rest in the Kananaskis Valley before a final morning transfer to the mountain town of Banff, a perfect place to continue your exploration, to join our ride between Banff and Jasper, or to take advantage of an optional transfer back to Calgary.

This is a black diamond tour. Black diamonds denote our most challenging trips, these include longer distances, bigger hills, long hikes, exposed paddling, and full days of activity. We recommend a higher degree of fitness and training to make the most of the experience.

Typical Day

If you want to travel with van support and cheerful, caring guides, and have most of your meals included, a guided trip is the best choice for you. Your luggage is carried for you, and on most days, the guide(s) will pass you in the support vehicle frequently to offer you snacks, drinks, and opportunities to catch a lift. The groups usually congregate for picnic lunches and special affairs, but otherwise tend to spread out along the route during the day, each rider choosing his or her own pace. Because you will be sharing your holiday with other adventurers likely to have a few things in common with you, your evening dinners become enriched by shared stories and entertainment, and you may make friends who will share your future adventure plans.
