Spend 7 blissful days cycling British Columbia’s Gulf Islands, exploring the coast, countryside and refined capital city, Victoria. Join an expert guide and a handful of fellow travelers for this ramble through three gorgeous Gulf Islands: Vancouver, Pender and Salt Spring. Graced with a Mediterranean-like climate, these islands pair Pacific Northwest natural beauty with a European vibe. This trip is right for cycling enthusiasts of any level who love sightseeing from the saddle. All the details are handled for you. Experience country roads, seaside paths, misty moss-draped forests, and the frontier elegance of British Columbia’s capital, Victoria. Expect fresh coastal cuisine and leisurely rides through storybook landscapes. Great snow-crowned peaks rise around us as we discover Gulf Islands National Park and beyond. Ride rolling hills through lush countryside; visit Victoria’s world-renowned Butchart Gardens; explore a quirky village named for a Georgian-era British ship, the HMS Vesuvius; stroll ocean beaches strewn with sea stars and lazing harbor seals; and venture into a park where basalt canyons cradle a jewel-green river. Go home beautifully relaxed after a week on island time.
