Custom Wilderness Journey Tour now on special due to a late cancellation.

This is a spectacular opportunity to get in on our sold out season with some friends. It includes all the wonderful terrain of the KVR Classic Ride at a “Journey” pace and includes some of our favorite accommodation at Idabel Lake and Myra Canyon.

Highlights of this tour include a layover day at the idyllic rest stop – Idabel Lake. After the initial climb to the summit of the trail, take a day to relax – paddle a canoe or row a rowboat on the lake – listen to the call of loons, watch for moose in the wetlands, or hike one of the trails. From there ride we have also included a night stay at the impressive Myra Canyon Ranch enabling you to break up the long ride to Penticton and take your time cycling through the spectacular Myra Canyon.

There are some great riding days in this tour through an incredibly diverse area from the Kettle River Valley to alpine lakes and valleys of fruit and wineries.
