Find the right Mountain Bike Tour for you near Banff, Alberta

If you want a great and unique introduction to Banff National Park, a mountain bike tour is exactly what the doctor ordered. What better way to see the stunning sights and wildlife of the Canadian Rockies than on two wheels silently gliding along. Beautiful lakes, rivers, trails and mountains will be your backdrop. One company that does bike tours in the park is BackTrax where there are several options to choose from.

The Vermilion Lakes & Cave & Basin/Cascade Gardens tour for example is a nice easy but rewarding ride. This tour takes in two very unique areas. The first leg brings you 4.5kms down Vermillion Lakes Road. There are over 138 species of birds that hang out around here so if ornithology is your cup of tea, get your guidebook and camera out. The second part of the journey takes you to the historic Cave and Basin area which has some delightfully hidden little trails where you can enjoy Banff exactly as it was hundreds of years ago.

For all winter and summer rentals, Backtrax has pretty much everything covered so even if you didn’t come equipped to tackle the terrain of Banff, the staff will help you be as prepared as possible.
