The Great Canadian E-Bike Adventure – 3 Hours
Your guide will teach you the basics of riding a full suspension electric mountain bike at Canadian’s Callaghan base camp before leading you through a magnificent old-growth forest, with some 1000-year-old trees, alongside Callaghan Creek.
Cruise side by side on the double track off road trail that leads to the jewel of Callaghan Valley – the breathtaking 140-foot Alexander Falls. Enjoy local knowledge about culture and nature along the way.
Take a refreshing break at the falls and get a few helpful tips from your guide before you embark on a gravity fuelled bike descent back to base camp. As a bonus, you can have a hand at axe throwing back at camp to add even more excitement to your adventure.

SKILL LEVEL – NOVICE You’re comfortable off road on a mountain bike, riding on relatively smooth, wide open trails with the occasional small root or rock. Braking on hills and loose dirt, and changing gears to suit terrain are skills you are familiar with. More advanced riders are welcome to join the groups but those who are not comfortable with this skill level will likely not enjoy the tour.
