Hut-to-Hut Bike Tours

From the mountain tops, life takes on a new brilliance. Somehow … the air is sweeter … and the possibilities more magnificent.

With endless trails and diverse terrain, bike tours through the mountains of Canada are so much more than a vacation. They’re a rare chance to reconnect with nature as you pedal beyond what you thought was possible (or “through wilderness that’s more beautiful than you dreamed”).

Shift your adventure into high gear...

The trails in the South Chilcotin Mountains are famous for a reason, these trails were established by the native Indian people as trading routes 10 000 years ago. There are many modes of access suited to the South Chilcotin Mountains park, including horse, foot and mountain bike. Our established wilderness camps provide the means for you to stay at the epicenter of the best mountain bike trails in the park. Instead of wasting time riding into and out of the park, you are free to test your bike handling skills on a new trail each day. Plus, the stunning landscapes and restorative solitude at our camps will give you an extra boost of energy to make the most of each incredible ride in the park.

We put the “mountain” back in mountain biking...

For us, mountain biking isn’t about epic descents or crazy stunts. It’s about the defining element that transforms ordinary bike tours into something truly special. In our wilderness adventures, the mountains definitely take center stage. Mountain biking from established backcountry camps allows you to ride in remote places on mountain trails that are full of awe-inspiring wilderness, not crowds. For us, that’s mountain biking at it’s finest: when you get to ride out of the crowds and congestion and into a genuine encounter with nature.

Part of their world...

This is your chance to reconnect with nature and yourself! Get deep into the wilderness under your own power. This is not a float plane assisted drop off in a high alpine lake disturbing the nature and the very wilderness experience you are seeking. This is your opportunity to share the back country with the wildlife and understand their world for a short time.

TTraveling through the mountains on these trails and sharing the environment with such magnificent creatures is an experience unlike any other. Our horseback, hike and mountain bike adventures allow you to enter this wild world with minimal impact, so you’ll get to observe the natural behavior and habits of our magnificent Canadian wildlife.

Throughout our wilderness trips, every moment brims with the possibility of another breathtaking nature encounter as you direct your attention to the wilderness and wildlife that surround you. These kinds of all-inclusive vacations allow you to fully savor each moment and relish every view, a rare opportunity in the midst of such rugged wilderness.
