Glacier / Canadian Rockies
14 RIDE DAYS • Guided,

The Rocky Mountains of Canada and northwest Montana will take your breath away. Though lower in altitude than the great ranges of Colorado, their stark crags soar above the plains, silhouetted against the Big Sky. And everybody knows that great mountains make for great motorcycling. This part of North America is so big, and so beautiful, that we're giving our riders some extra time to experience it in the most exciting way possible - on a motorcycle. This tour is FOURTEEN riding days! We'll leave Seattle, Washington and ride north into British Columbia and then east through the Canadian Rockies.

GCR11231We’ll ride wonderful winding roads through the Monashee and the Kootenay ranges where some of the most beautiful unspoiled forests, lakes and glaciers anywhere will awe and inspire you. Our route will track the old Canadian Pacific Railroad, which opened up this wilderness area little more than a century ago. Even now the communities are few and far between; railroad towns and resorts set against the stark majesty of the snowcapped Selkirk Range. We’ll take in BC’s wine region, the Okanagan valley. Vineyards and resort towns line Okanagan Lake with lively cafes, fun casual dining and robust nightlife. Surrounded by towering trees and steep hillsides, Kootenay Lake has North America’s longest free ferry and seductive switchback lakeside roads.

Legendary Canadian hospitality and friendlinessare the norm in the beautiful resorts of Banff and Lake Louise. A day ride on the Ice Fields Parkway is part of our stay in Banff.

OVERVIEW MAP

GCRMap

stampede1If a fantastic ride is not enough, prepare yourself to experience the Calgary Stampede. Held every July since 1912, the Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival all in one. The ten-day event, which bills itself as The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, attracts over one million visitors per year and features the world's largest rodeo. GAMCT has visited the Stampede several times in the past and we are looking forward to returning for two days to celebrate Canada in 2013.

South of Calgary is Alberta’s Kananaskis country, chosen for the 2002 G8 summit for its remoteness and spectacular scenery. The Canadian portion of our journey continues to Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. After crossing back into the US, we find ourselves on Going-To-The-Sun Highway in Glacier National Park. ALX4317

Our route back to Seattle takes us west through the Idaho panhandle, taking in Coeur D'Alene’s beautiful blue lake. After a magnificent crossing of the Columbia River we climb again through the Wenatchee National Forest and Stevens Pass before our descent back to sea level in Seattle.
