Always been your dream? Your Cross-Canada trip could well begin here! The first leg of an unforgettable journey, this two-week trek already has more than enough to stimulate your senses, your mind… and your calf muscles!
With the promise of breathtaking landscapes, your trip begins in Vancouver with a lovely loop through Stanley Park, one of the most beautiful urban green spaces on the continent. Next on the itinerary are the orchards and vineyards of the lush green Okanagan Valley. Near Revelstoke, you will finally catch sight of the majestic Rockies, which you will pedal across toward your final stopovers: Lake Louise and Banff National Park. Unforgettable!
