Tour Itinerary

This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider’s store in Vancouver and are off on a ride through super, natural British Columbia! You are heading over to Horseshoe Bay, a quaint and picturesque seaside village on the North Shore of Vancouver, and board the BC Ferry to Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. Nanaimo boasts one of the prettiest waterfronts in Canada, and is the third oldest city in British Columbia. Nanaimo itself offers many sights, you might want to check out…How about taking a heritage tour and see a number of historic buildings, such as the Miner’s Cottage, the Nanaimo Courthouse, the brick-faced Earl Block, and the Palace Hotel? Continue your ride and cruise down to Victoria – Hwy 1 is your road. You travel via the pretty little town of Ladysmith, Crofton – and should definitely plan a stop in Duncan – the “City of Totems” – located in the Cowichan Valley to visit carvers at work at the Quw’utsun Cultural Centre. A tour of local wineries and BC’s first cidery is a must! Continue with panoramic ocean views to your left into Victoria, the capitol of British Columbia. Victoria boasts a mild climate with lush, green vegetation. Begin your sightseeing with a tour of the Legislative Buildings. You should take time to admire the city’s gardens, parks, museums and beaches while here. Overnight.
Today you are heading back to the mainland and you board a BC Ferry to Tsawassen, south of Vancouver. You take Hwy 1 and head inland towards Hope, nestled in the Cascade Mountains on the banks of the Fraser River. From here you head north on Hwy 1 and follow the mighty Fraser River, named after Simon Fraser, the first European to navigate its raging waters. You are riding the Fraser Canyon roadway and enjoy awe-inspiring scenery. Cutting a heart-stopping swath through the Cascade Mountains and the Coast Mountains, the river creates a colossal valley of lush forests, dramatic gorges and mountainside farmlands. Make sure to stop at Hell’s Gate to see nature at its most magnificent. Ride up to Lytton, the “Rafting Capital of Canada”, where you overnight.
From Lytton your journey will take you north to Lillooet, mile zero of the original road to the Cariboo gold fields. Miners and traders used this route to the British Columbia interior and it was vitally important during the Cariboo Gold Rush. You enter Hwy 99 – the infamous Sea To Sky Highway – and keep heading south towards Pemberton, and plan a stop at Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, where hanging glaciers crown three turquoise-colored lakes. You are riding the intensely scenic Sea To Sky Highway all the way into Whistler, Canada’s popular resort town. You have to take time to inhale the magic that happens at the summit of the small valley that contains Whistler. A cluster of little lakes is gathered here, reflecting the outline of the mountains high above. Alta Lake is the great divide in the Sea To Sky corridor. Water flowing from its south end reaches the Pacific via the Cheakamus and Squamish Rivers, while water flowing from its north end in the river of Golden Dreams eventually reaches the ocean through the Harrison watershed and the Frazer River. No other lakes have scenery quite like this to mirror. Hwy 99 winds through five distinct bio-geo-climatic zones in the Vancouver, Coast and Mountain region of BC, from coastal rainforest at Horseshoe Bay, through Squamish, Garibaldi Provincial Park, and the Resort Municipality of Whistler. Your ride continues south, and you travel through narrow valleys with mountain glaciers visible in the distance alongside Howe Sound, North America’s southernmost fjord. The Sea To Sky Highway turns a final corner and the mountains give way to a spectacular view of Vancouver – arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Upon arrival back in Vancouver your exciting journey will come to an end and it will be time to return your bike at EagleRider’s Vancouver store.
