This once in a lifetime journey takes you from the emerald waters of Seattle, Washington through the visual splendor of the Cascade Mountains before ascending the Canadian Rockies to bask in the natural beauty of Lake Louise and Banff, Alberta. From Canada we will cross back into the United States through the razor sharp peaks of Glacier National Park and the majesty of Yellowstone National Park and her most cherished treasure, “Old Faithful”. Our journey culminates with a ride through one of the most stunning landscapes in the United States, Rocky Mountain National Park, before ending in beautiful mile high city of Denver, Colorado.
Day 1 Seattle, WA 0 miles
Welcome to one of the most beautiful cities in the United States of America, Seattle, Washington. Enjoy a leisurely stroll down the famed Seattle waterfront, enjoy a ferry ride on on Elliot Bay, visit the Space Needle or try your hand throwing Salmon at the World famous Pike’s Place Market. The day is free for you to take in the local sights and sounds of this cosmopolitan city. Tonight we will take in a great welcome dinner at a local landmark restaurant.
Day 2 Seattle WA to Winthrop WA 235 miles.
Today we say goodbye to the Emerald City of Seattle and quickly make our way to some of the most beautiful back roads in the State of Washington. Highway 9 is a Northwest treasure that winds through the carnation and tulip fields as we head north towards the Mt. Baker and North Cascades National Parks. Highway 9 drops us off at the North Cascades Loop as we head east through what is quite literally some of the most stunning scenery south of the Canadian Rockies. Our stop for the night is the small western town of Winthrop, Washington where we will sit along the river sipping an ice cold drink or glass of wine and reflect on the incredible day we just shared.

As we leave the stateside Glacier National Park, we turn our bikes southeast through Glacier National forest towards Bozeman Montana. We will stick to the two-lane roads, passing by lakeshores and through the cattle country that defines this area. A stop for lunch in the small, pioneering town of Ovando will give you a chance to soak explore the extensive Montana history of this area. For thousands of years Native American tribes have made this area home, and later explorations by Merriweather Lewis and mining discoveries created this town. Our day ends at the resort of Fairmont Hot Springs where we can soak in the hot water and celebrate our day.
Day 9 Fairmont Hot Springs MT to Red Lodge, MT 322 miles
Today we will continue to explore some of the pioneering history of Montana, stopping in the historical gold-mining towns of Virginia and Nevada cities. If you haven’t felt it before, you will definitely feel as if you’ve stepped back into time in the old West. Our ride will continue through the city of Bozeman, eventually turning off onto the small roads that climb towards the mountain town of Red Lodge. Get a good’s night sleep, as tomorrow we tackle the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph passes!

Day 12 Cody WY to Jackson, WY 220 miles
We are running out of adjectives to describe this incredible region of the world. If you wnt to know what today’s ride will be like all you have to do is think back to any of the past 11 days. Today is no different. We will wind our way through parts of Yellowstone National Park, stopping to experience the majesty of Old Faithful before turning south towards Grand Teton National Park. Our home tonight is nestled in one of the most famous and exclusive ski resort areas of the United States, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Jackson is home to sprawling cattle ranches, celebrity estates and roaming herds of buffalo. Tonight we will enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Jackson Hole.
Day 13 Jackson WY to Green River, WY 306 miles
Our time together is drawing to a close in a few days, but the scenery along this route is just as uplifting and amazing as every day before. We will start our ride by descending through Snake River Gorge as we leave the Grand Teton National Park. We will briefly explore the gentle landscapes of Idaho and Utah as we travel though areas with names such as “Tin Cup Pass” and “Soda Springs.” Lunch is along the shore of the impossibly-turquoise Bear Lake before we cross the high desert of the Colorado Plateau, home to huge operations of oil and natural gas. So much country, so little time!
