The Canadian Rockies, including the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, have been on our bucket list for ages. Even though this trip has the word “Rockies” in the name, the climbs are surprisingly not that bad. There are some long climbs, but they tend to be in the 2% grade range. There are no sustained steep climbs in the required riding. However, if you are looking for some challenging climbs, we have them for you on the optional ride days.
Take in the mountain peaks, emerald green lakes, waterfalls and lush forests around the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Banff and Lake Louise. The trip starts in Calgary. We ride on to the towns of Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise. In addition to spectacular riding, the trip includes a ride through the city of Calgary and a visit to the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. You also have time to hike, boat and ride the Banff gondola to experience the breathtaking expanse of the Canadian Rockies. The trip is being offered on two separate dates: August 23-31, 2018 (only one spot left!) and September 1- 9, 2018 (sold out!). Currently the September 1-9 trip is full.
