Canol Road Tour - 11 Days

Venture by bike to the northern edge of the Rocky Mountains in the remote Northeast Yukon. During WW II, the US army constructed a road to bring oil from the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories to a refinery in Whitehorse. Two years after completion the project was abandoned.

The dirt road is still seasonally maintained by the Canadian government. The winding route takes you through some of the most beautiful northern country in this hemisphere. Bike past pristine lakes with loons calling. View the scenic splendour of the autumn colors in reds and golds. Watch the Northern Lights put on a show while a wolf howls in the distance. Join us for a true wilderness experience.
