Icefields

Exploring the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Jasper National Park, and Banff…

This section takes us through the iconic scenery of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. After cycling past mile zero of the Alaska Highway in Dawson Creek B.C., and then briefly across the northern prairie in western Alberta, we turn south along remote Highway 40 towards the Rockies and the town of Grand Cache.

Near Hinton we turn west onto the Yellowhead Highway which takes us to a rest day in Jasper National Park, and the resort town of Jasper where deer, black bear and big horned sheep may wander the streets.
Then it’s down the breathtaking Icefield 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.

Level: intermediate

Some long and tough days with shorter less challenging days mixed in. Environment (sometimes including wind and heat) and terrain (including some significant climbing) are more of a factor. Some unexpected challenges may creep in from time to time.

Prices based on double occupancy at hotels. Solo riders will be paired with another rider of the same sex at no additional charge.
