Day 1 Arrival in Seattle
Upon arrival in Seattle, you will be taken to your airport hotel. You will have time to freshen up, after which the team leader will talk you through the practicalities of the trip in the hotel bar whilst you enjoy a well-deserved drink.
Day 2 Seattle – Wenatchee (195 miles)
In the morning, your motorbikes will be brought to the hotel: let the ride begin! You will soon be greeted by that holiday feeling as we ride through the beautiful Mount Rainier National Park and view the highest volcano in the Cascade Range. Destination: Wenatchee.
Day 3 Wenatchee – Colville (200 miles)
We will ride through the Colville Indian Reservation and Forest in Washington State, the most north-western state of the USA. Crossing the Columbia River by ferry, we will ride on through lovely countryside to our night accommodation in Colville.
Day 4 Colville – Sandpoint (115 miles)
Along the river Pend Oreille, we will enter the state of Idaho. You can totally relax along the deserted roads through the Flathead Indian Reservation, home to three Indian tribes: the Bitterroot Salish, the Kootenai, and the Pend d’Oreilles who all lived off hunting buffalos and salmon-fishing.
Day 5 Sandpoint – Kalispell (175 miles)
Today, we will ride along the banks of Lake Oreille in the state of Idaho and enjoy stunning vistas and Kodak moments. The lake stretches across 65 miles and is 1100 ft deep in some places, making it one of the deepest lakes in the USA. This lake is home to many types of fish; there is a large population of the rainbow trout here. Perhaps you will find one on your plate for dinner!
Day 6 Kalispell – Fernie (230 miles)
After an early start through the Logan Pass, we will reach the Glacier National Park with its many stunning mountain passes, and dozens of big and small lakes. In the prehistoric state of Montana, we will cross the border into Canada. Tonight’s accommodation is in Fernie, a nice little ski resort.
Day 7 Fernie – Banff (180 miles)
From the Canadian state of British Columbia, we will ride on to Kootenay National Park. The natural beauty of this place is overwhelming. On some days the lakes are as blue as the sky, and on other days a deep jade green. It calls for many viewpoint stops. Today’s destination is the well-known winter sport resort of Banff, which is surrounded by glaciers.
Day 8 Banff – Jasper (175 miles)
Today will be another day you will never forget; the Columbia Icefield Highway will further take you through the Canadian Rockies. Despite it being a highway, you will encounter a low amount of traffic. Along the way, we will pass spectacular snow-topped mountains, the famous Lake Louis, and green forests, but watch out for the grizzlies! We will stay the night in Jasper, a quiet and charming village with plenty of Native Indian culture.
Day 9 Jasper – 100 Miles House (265 miles)
Today we will descend, leaving the mountains behind us, riding a great deal through forested countryside. You will notice a lot of log-houses along the way; 100 Miles House is home to this log-house industry.
Day 10 100 Miles House – Vancouver (285 miles)
Riding through small villages, we will reach Whistler, the most well-known winter sport resort. It was so named after the wind that whistles through the mountain tops on stormy days. If you love riding down bendy roads, this will seem like paradise. After a short break, we will carry on to Lions Gate Bridge, taking us to Vancouver. In the evening you can enjoy a few drinks in the Gaslight District.
Day 11 Vancouver – Port Alberni (165 miles)
Fjords, all kinds of tiny islands, and even orcas and seals pop up as we take the ferry to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Keep your camera or camcorder at the ready!
Day 12 Port Alberni – Victoria (150 miles)
Today we will ride to Victoria, the capital of Vancouver Island. There will be ample time to explore this enjoyable, British-influenced town.
Day 13 Victoria – Seattle (200 miles)
Early in the morning, we will take the ferry across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the USA. Once there, we can take our time riding down various winding roads. You may get a sore neck from not knowing where to look! On one side you will see the stunning vistas over Olympic National Park, and on the other side, Hood Canal Dabob Bay. We will ride along the 101, the Pacific Coast Highway, which starts here and ends at the Mexican border.
Day 14 Seattle (free day)
To end this journey, you will have a free day in Seattle, nicknamed ‘Emerald City’ because of its nearby evergreen forests. Seattle is also famous for its coffee culture; it is home to the coffee chain Starbucks. You can take the time to visit the Pike Place Market or Seattle Aquarium. A visit to the magical Space Needle is also certainly worth it.
Day 15 Seattle – U.K.
Early in the morning, the shuttle bus will take you to the airport for your flight home… But perhaps you don’t want to go home yet! You do have the opportunity to extend your stay. Call us for more information and we will be happy to assist you in organising any additional wishes.
