It is nestled along Canada's West Coast and is a paradise of tranquil islands, pristine coastlines, and emerald forests. Whether you are strolling on a beach or cycling a country lane, watching an artist at work or enjoying a seafood feast on a sunny patio, you feel the magic of being on an island surrounded by the magnificence of the Pacific Ocean.
Our commitment to personal attention
Our commitment to personal attention makes every guest, whether an individual or member of a group, feel special. All tours are designed to appeal to a wide variety of fitness levels and ages, whether you're looking for a scenic cycling experience on one of our hybrids or looking to hammer on a road bike. From detailed cue sheets to vehicle support, energy food to cold beverages on ice, we are all about service and making the best cycling experience for every guest.
Our Vancouver Island bike tours are categorized as:
If you're looking for a tour that caters to you or your group then a custom guided tour is the best option. Whether you want a half day, a full day or a multi-day experience let us personalize a bike tour for your special group – big or small. You tell us what you would like and we take care of the details.
Our self-guided bike tours offer a balance of support and freedom to explore. Your bikes, accommodations, and luggage transfers are arranged, and a route and day-by-day itinerary are planned. Self-guided bike tours have more flexibility in your daily schedule but both guided and self-guided provide experiences you don’t get from the window of a train or rental car.
Island Joy Rides combines bicycling, pampering and West Coast culture in our high quality Vancouver Island tours. All of our Joyrides are self-paced, fully supported and designed to let you fully experience our area in the best way possible - up close and personal.
