Canada West Tour CCW

Canada

Overwhelming mountain ranges, shimmering blue lakes and never-ending forests!

Be prepared for an extraordinary motorcycle tour. It appears that all of the pine tree forests, sparkling lakes and rivers, and mountain ranges of the world are found here in the western portion of Canada – where our motorcycle journey begins. This spectacular ride through Canada’s western wilderness will leave you with 2,000 miles of memories.

The Canadian Rockies are on the northern end of the North America Rocky Mountain Range and run through two of Canada’s provinces: Alberta and British Columbia. Towns like Jasper make you feel like you’re in the Great White North. The infamous Icefields Parkway with its snow-capped mountains is surrounded by aqua blue waters and large glaciers. Mount Robson is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies and is particularly impressive because it stands on the continental divide towering over one of the lowest passes in the Canadian Rockies and on the Yellowhead Highway. Not only does this part of North America offer excellent sightseeing, but the curving roads will allow you to enjoy your motorcycle to the fullest.

Testimonials

Canada West Tour

I have been touring with Edelweiss Bike Travel since 2011 and since then I have done about 8 tours with them. My Canada West Tour is among my favorites. From the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, to the oceanside metropolises of Seattle and Vancouver the tour was conducted at a perfect pace, with plenty of time to see all the sites and enough rest days at just the perfect times and places. The knowledge and amiability of the tour guides, Ed and Mike, only made the perfect trip more perfect! I made lifetime friends on this tour and hope to see them all again on another tour. If you have ever wanted to see the Pacific Northwest or the Canadian Rockies, I highly recommend this tour.
