Mountain bike in the pristine Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park.
Tatshenshini-Alsek Park in British Columbia is part of the largest United Nations World Heritage Site in the world. It is an amazing alpine landscape of mountains, glaciers, meadows, and tundra. That is your backdrop on this great offroad bike ride.
After a morning bike fitting and orientation at our shop in Haines, you are taken by van up the Haines Highway over the Chilkat Pass to the park. Bike with your guide six miles across the alpine tundra on a dirt trail through a sea of wildflowers to an overlook of five glaciers flowing out of the mountains and converging into one massive river of ice. Enjoy a picnic lunch, then return by the same route to the van for your drive back to Haines.
Make this a true northern adventure by camping in the alpine tundra at Chilkat Pass after your bike ride. Relax at camp and enjoy the alpine vistas and evening light while your guide prepares a gourmet dinner. Afterwards you can retire to your tent or stretch out under the stars.
The next morning after breakfast you go for a short ride to an alpine lake or hike up the ridge of a local peak. You return to Haines later in the afternoon. This tour is the perfect way to explore our alpine environment by bike in a seldom visited region in Canada, just 75 miles from the coast!
