What an amazing holiday!!

It doesn’t matter who you speak to about Canada, one the first things they are likely tell you is how beautiful it is, and how friendly the people are, and of course both of these insights are true.

In 2016 I decided that I needed to return to Canada for another motorcycle adventure, this time covering west coast from Vancouver Island to Banff, and north to Prince Rupert. It was an epic 20 day road trip covering over 4000 kilometers.

I was wearing the same biking gear I had used for my trip to South Africa in 2015, so check out my South Africa article if you want to gear-up.

I have broken down my adventure in to segments ( it makes life a bit easier to write and upload ), noting some of places I stayed and amazing scenery along the way.

Vancouver to Cache Creek
My first day of riding in Canada and recovering from jet lag! I’m already in love with Canda!

Cache Creek to Revelstoke
A couple of days to take in the amazing Revelstoke, including a day ride to Nakusp via the local ferry service – awesome!

Revelstoke to Golden
A short ride today to Golden, plenty of time to relax and take in the amazing roads.

Golden to Banff
Heading further in to the mountains of Banff, known worldwide for awesome scenery and winter activities.

Banff to Jasper
Smaller than Banff but no less charming, including the awesome Icefields Parkway and Lake Maligne

Jasper to Clearwater
A very rainy ride south through the mountains, my spirits are not dampened and loving the scenery and roads!!

Clearwater to Prince George
Heading north again with the sun in my face, more amazing scenery and great people along the route.

Prince George to Smithers
Canada and the amazing roads are the gift that just keeps on giving, also loving the sunshine again!

Smithers to Prince Rupert
Nearing the coast and feeling the coastal breeze and the road sweeps towards the hotel and ferry port.

Prince Rupert to Port Hardy (Vancouver Island)
An early start on the ferry, seen off by whales splashing outside the harbour and following the ferry towards Vancouver Island – amazing!

Port Hardy to Campbell River
An early breakfast and amazing ride with my new riding companion Yanive on his Harley Davidson. A great day spent watching killer whales and dolphins at Campbell River.

Campbell River to Tofino
Wet and winding mountain roads heading southeast greeted by some of world best fish and chips at Ucluelet and amazing coastal hotel and Tofino!

Tofino to Victoria
Heading south again to bustling Victoria and the chill-out nature of the bars and clubs.

Victoria to Vancouver
A short ferry ride back to mainland with plenty of time for last evening drinks and fun before the flight home. I’ll miss you Canada!!

Ride safe,
