American Express Vacations, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and EagleRider Motorcycle Rentals & Tours have collaborated to provide American Express® Gold Card members with a luxury motorcycle adventure. For six days riders will cruise from Calgary to Banff along Canada's most scenic highways visiting the Stoney Indian Reserve, Dead Man's Flats, Kootenay National Park and more. Along the way bikers will become one with nature as they soak in the sights and sounds of the Canadian Rockies, tackle the rapids on the Kicking Horse River, hike the glacier trails of Marble Canyon or even take in some golf. This tour is an experience of a lifetime that should not be missed.
Arrive in Calgary. Riders will meet at 5pm at The Fairmont Palliser for introductions, followed by a welcome reception and group dinner. You will also see your motorcycles for the very first time.
After an early breakfast, the group will meet with EagleRider staff to receive your motorcycles. Following a safety briefing and vehicle orientation, you will enjoy a ride through the Calgary suburbs before starting the miraculous journey up the famed Trans Canada Highway. You will pass through the likes of the Stoney Indian Reserve and Dead Man's Flats. There are a lot of miles to cover, but there will be frequent stops to soak in the amazing sights and sounds of the Canadian Rockies, plus a group lunch at a fun local restaurant. Tonight, you will enjoy a relaxing evening at the luxurious Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.
This will likely be your favorite biking day of the journey. The ride from Jasper to Lake Louise takes riders back down the incomparable Banff-Jasper Highway, also known as the Icefields Parkway. You will stop for lunch at a unique restaurant along the route, and will enjoy accommodations at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, an amazing lakefront hotel and easily one of the favorite stops along this incredible route.
Bikers have two ride choices today; the long scenic route or the short scenic route! Those feeling adventurous can choose the ride up to the breathtaking Kootenay National Park before arriving in Banff, Alberta. The group will have the opportunity for an extended stop to hike in Marble Canyon, a deep, narrow glacially carved maze of trails and swinging foot bridges, and a wilderness- and adventure-lovers' paradise! There will again be a stop for a group lunch at a local restaurant. Those looking to squeeze in a round of championship golf today may want to take the quick 35-mile ride down the road and head straight to The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the final destination for today.
Today, you will trade in rubber tires for rubber rafts and hit the cool waters of the Kicking Horse River, which boasts some of the best scenery in the Canadian Rockies and is known for its seemingly endless rolling rapids. After a group riverside barbecue lunch, you will head back to The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel to relax before a hosted farewell dinner. For those looking for an adventure on dry land, you may choose to enjoy the highly regarded Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, or simply enjoy a relaxing day at their world-class hotel spa.
With a lifetime of memories from this grand Canadian adventure behind you, you'll enjoy an outdoor champagne breakfast before saying farewell. Riders will then be transferred to the Calgary International Airport for your individual flights home.
