Jasper Motorcycle Tours offers sidecar tours in the great Canadian Rockies on legendary Harley Davidson Motorcycles, driven by professional riders. Here is where anyone, of any age, even with a disability, can experience the thrill of riding in one of the world’s most desired settings. Since 2007 guests have been invited to separate from the crowds, step out of their comfort zone and be fitted into leathers to “ride free” on a fresh and exhilarating mini adventure!
How do the experiences you offer at Jasper Motorcycle Tours give guests a unique perspective on the history, environment or culture of your region?
The experience of riding on the motorcycle or in the side car and feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face while enjoying the fresh mountain air and smelling the scent of the trees is exhilarating. We love that we can tour young children and seniors … our oldest client so far was 93! You can be short or tall, lean or not so lean, have all your limbs or some that don’t work so well, be physically well or have some health challenges and yet this adventure is available as meaningful to all regardless.
How have the experiences that you offer evolved since their inception?
Experiences we offer have evolved since our inception greatly. We started with only two side cars and now we have seven! We can tour 100 people a day 🙂
What is one detail of an experience you provide that may go unnoticed by guests, but which you feel is important?
One detail our guests may not know at the beginning of their experience with us is that our drivers love being a part of the adventure as much as the guests and that this is not a “job” for them to be able to be a part of our guest’s lives for a short time and share their passion is truly as rewarding fro them as it is for our clients.
What do you wish every guest knew as they consider participating in the experiences you offer?
Our drivers have years of experience and a flawless safety record, a love for riding motorcycles and a passion for “showing off” our wonderful surroundings to visitors to our National Park.
What is one travel trend that really excites you?
The Bucket List traveler! We have many clients telling us they are so excited to be part of our tours because they are crossing it off their “bucket list”. They arrive with great anticipation and infect us with their enthusiasm. They leave with huge grins and high hopes and are never disappointed.
What sets Jasper Motorcycle Tours apart from other motorcycle touring companies?
Our location in the beautiful Rocky Mountain means that we are able to show our guests spectacular views of pristine lakes and mountains and abundant wildlife away from busy highways and traffic. We can get “up close and personal” in a way that we believe is unique.
What is one insiders tip to getting the most out of an experiential travel vacation?
In order to have an experiential travel vacation you need to be open to new experiences and leave your inhibitions behind. Get out of your comfort zone and enjoy all Jasper has to offer.
What is one strategy that has helped your business to grow?
Our business has grown because we are like a family that keeps on growing. We are all important to each other and we care about one another at work and in our day to day lives.
What is one personal habit that has helped you to be successful?
Being tenacious! Having a vision and being able to persevere and make that vision a reality.
Please share one instance where a guest had a moving or emotional reaction to the experience you provided to them.
It’s hard to narrow it down to just one example. We have clients who have beaten cancer and this trip is a celebration of that. On the other hand we have clients who are facing illness and living life to the fullest. Both are equally emotional to witness. We have guests who have a lifelong fear of motorcycles but feel they have the courage to ride in a sidecar … they often finish their tour riding behind our driver having conquered their fear and wanting to feel even more excitement! Their sense of accomplishment is as exciting for us as it is them! Our time may be short with our clients but there are relationships formed, stories told and memories made which far outlast the time we do share … what makes it special is that those memories and stories are part of the fabric that make us the business we are.
