Kettle Valley Railroad
Once an important piece of BC’s southern interior mining industry, the Kettle Valley Railroad now gives mountain bikers access to an absolutely stunning part of the province. The tracks and ties have been replaced with a well graded multi use portion of the Trans Canada Trail. The many trestles and tunnels on the KVR are a dramatic reminder of an era gone by, when railways tied a young country together across vast tracts of wilderness. Today, restored and upgraded for safety, these impressive structures provide for some exciting riding! Groups should allow 5 days for the tour, which includes travel time to and from Calgary. Longer tours are possible if desired; please call us for details. Company of Adventurers provides guides, tents & stoves, campsites and a support vehicle to transport bikes and shuttle gear
