West Canada Bike Tours have been providing memorable bicycle touring holidays on the beautiful and scenic Kettle Valley Rails to Trails Route through southern British Columbia. Once a historic rail line, the abandoned Kettle Valley Railway has been converted to recreational use and forms part of the TransCanada Trail, which connect the country from coast to coast.
The self-guided Kettle Valley Tour begins in Castlegar and ends in Vancouver at the Pacific Coast. Most of the trip is travelling on the gem of the TransCanada Trail through western Canada’s wilderness.
This bike tour is designed for experienced recreational cyclists (multi-day bike trips) who prefer to ride this rail corridor through the wilderness self-guided in a small group.
Rocky Mountain by bicycle – self-guided
This cycling tour begins near the city of Cranbrook. By bicycle, the tour follows the Columbia River before heading deeper into the mountains.
On an old railway line, you will cycle an almost gradient free route to Kimberley. Some time is spent in Kimberley’s downtown core ‘The Platzl’ before continuing on to Wasa Lake.
From Wasa Lake, continuing north, you ride by some interesting stone pillars called Hoodoos before eventually arriving at Fairmont Hot Springs.
While travelling further, you’ll experience the Columbia Wetlands and then the adventurous town of Golden. From here, you head towards the village of Field in Yoho National Park. This tour continues into Alberta. You may view detailed itineraries online at their web link on the right.
