A completely new tour, but already one of our favorites!
This Circular MTB tour around BC will show you to the best biking spots around British Columbia! And as we all know, BC is among the top biking destinations in the world! Mountain bikers from all over the world make yearly pilgrimages to the so-called “biking mecca”. They say it’s like the mafia. Once you are in, there is no way out.
How it all started?
After years of very successful MTB expeditions to Whistler, it was time to do something more. As avid mountain bikers, we wanted to also explore the areas outside the world famous Whistler. So, we did. We went to Squamish, Pemberton, Kamloops & Chilliwack! Our bodies were pretty tired after all those places, but hey, we were overwhelmed! The varied terrain offers unforgettable mountain, city and ocean views that will hook even the most demanding biker. The whole area lives and breathes for outdoor sports and luckily for us, biking is definitely pretty high on that ladder. Thus, there are epic trails all around the province and one just cannot get bored around here!
So, again, our passion led us to this completely crazy itinerary! We warn you, once you read it, there is no way back! 🙂

Day 1 – Welcome to BC
If you are traveling from far away we recommend arriving at least a day early to help you adjust to the time zone and to avoid any luggage or flight delay complications.
We will pick you up at the airport in Vancouver at 9pm and drive you to Whistler with a private shuttle. There, you will move into the accommodation for the first week. After you settle in, we will have a short briefing followed by a dinner. As long-haul flights can be very exhausting, we will call it a day and get some good, much-needed sleep.
Day 2 – Warm up Whistler trails
We will spend the second day getting to know each other and debating about the program with your guide. After that, it will be time to set up your bikes and hit the first trail. The first part will include skills and safety check, followed by some training. Together with the guide, you will then hit the nearest trail in the area. We will take the first day of biking a bit easier and gradually build on our biking experience.
Day 3 – South Whistler trails
On the third day, we will take our bikes out to explore the Whistler Valley. The all-mountain bike trails in Whistler are a maze. We will first move to the South and explore the Lost Lake Park. This recreational area consists of a dense network of trails through the forest, that will help you get a feeling for the type of terrain, features, and style of enduro riding that characterizes the Whistler area.
Day 4 – North Whistler trails
Next day, we will take our bikes towards the Whistler North. This area is quickly gaining recognition of offering some of the best all-mountain bike trails. Characterized by Green Lake, the North offers some of the most spectacular views across the whole valley to Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
