Enjoy the thrill of this 4-day fully supported bike tour on Alberta's Icefields Parkway

The road bike ride from Jasper to Banff is one of the world’s best bike rides. Joining this fully-supported tour means you don’t have to drag a heavy, pannier-filled bike along this trip. Instead, you have a support van full of great snacks, clean clothes and spare parts in case you have a mechanical breakdown.

This is an experience to last a lifetime, and biking along the Icefields Parkway is perhaps the best way to explore this incredibly wild part of the world. Beginning in Jasper, you will cycle through valleys, past mountains, beside lakes, and view stunning waterfalls. Along the way, the support van and driver will show you special overlooks, viewpoints and other highlights along this incredible ride. You’ll also have great snacks and meals, with regular stops where you can recover some strength and eagerly share the excitement of the beautiful country you have just ridden through.

While each day is spectacular, the ride to Lake Louise on Day 3 is especially rewarding, and typically the group takes an evening trip to Moraine Lake and Lake Louise for spectacular views as the sunsets. It really doesn’t get any better. Except it does, the last day ride into Banff has stupendous views along Vermillion Lakes, and is a triumphant end to an epic adventure. If you are in reasonable fitness and like riding a bike, you can probably do this trip!
