Haida Gwaii & The Rockies

19 Days Moderate 1650 KmAVG 103 Km

Participants will enjoy a couple days of cycling through the unique environment of Haida Gwaii, often referred to as the ‘Galapagos of the North’, before boarding a ferry for the scenic journey across the Hecate Strait to Prince Rupert. The route then follows the mighty Skeena River along the Yellowhead Highway, weaving its way past logging towns like Terrace and Smithers and stopping overnight in historic locales including Hazelton where steamboats in the 1870’s dropped off miners heading for nearby goldfields.

Riders will also have the opportunity to visit First Nations communities such as the ‘Ksan, a matrilineal society of the Gitxsan peoples, consisting of Frog, Eagle, Wolf, and Fireweed clans. Pedalling past misty mountains, small farms, and bustling sawmills they will then arrive in Prince George for a well earned rest day and the chance to visit the city’s fascinating Railway and Forestry Museum.

The cyclists now head into the heart of the Rocky Mountains following the route of one of Canada’s 2 transcontinental railway lines, past stunning Mount Robson and on to the mountain resort town of Jasper. Then it’s down the breathtaking Icefields Parkway which runs alongside the continental divide, past Mt Edith Cavell, the Columbia Icefields and serene Lake Louise en route to the winter sports and hiking haven that is Banff. From there it is another day’s ride out of the mountains and into Calgary, home of the world famous stampede and the end of this spectacular section.
