Renedian Tours is getting back to the roots of founder Rene Cormier, with new-for-2020 routes that are taking riders through Cormier’s home country of Canada.
It’s all part of Renedian’s 10-year-anniversary plans, which sees Cormier and Crew celebrating 10 years of business taking riders through interesting riding destinations like South Africa, Mongolia, and various South American routes.
The reality is that Cormier’s home country has its own exciting adventure riding territory, especially with new northern routes opening up, and people want to travel there too. So for 2020, that’s the plan, with three routes planned.
There’s a 13-day trip through the Canadian Rockies, covering 1600 miles and with rest stops in well-known hotspots Banff and Whistler. Pricing starts at $7,225 US (that’s for double accommodations and a BMW F750 or F850 GS rental; pay more if you want solo accommodations, or a bigger bike). Tour dates are in June, July and August for 2020, as well as an added tour in September for 2021.
There’s also a 15-day tour up the Dempster Highway to Inuvik and the Arctic Circle. This has 1900 paved miles, and 500 miles of gravel, and starts in Vancouver. There’s only one tour scheduled for this route in 2020, in July, and it’s the same for 2021. Pricing starts at $9,175 US, with a BMW F750 or F850 GS rental and shared accommodations. Again, you can get solo accommodations or a bigger bike if you pay more money.
If you want to head north, but don’t have enough time or money for the Dempster route, Renedian is also offering a new 9-day tour of the Yukon and Northwest Territory. This route has 450 miles of gravel and 420 miles of pavement, with a 375-mile gravel option. It’s priced at $5575 US, with the same rental and accommodation upgrades as the other tours. There’s one tour in 2020, starting in July, and same for 2021.
