A full day ATV tour to Paradise Ridge with 4 wheel power at your finger tips takes you up to 8,000 feet on the edge of the Rockies in Panorama, BC.

After some practice time at our base area your guide will lead you up the trail through old-growth forest and open slopes for a spectacular view of Panorama Mountain Resort and the surrounding peaks of the lovely Toby Creek Valley. The Paradise Ridge Tour starts at an elevation of 4,200 feet and there are many opportunities to see wildlife and to stop and take in the fragrance of the forest and the flowers as we travel along the trail.

You will visit the remains of an early 1900’s silver mine and town, walk along the banks of a rushing alpine creek and gaze in wonder at soaring rock peaks. The tour  rides all the way up to Paradise Ridge where you will view the vast expanse of the Canadian Rockies spread before you. Turn to the west and right before your eyes is the massive rock landmark of Mt. Nelson topping out at almost 11,000′. At your feet you will discover a verdant carpet of hardy, beautiful alpine flowers.

Enjoy a sumptuous BBQ lunch at the cozy comfortable alpine cabin and then the group descends back to the base.  Along the way you will park your ATV and follow your guide along a short pathway to the base of the Smith Falls where you can watch a clear, pure, snow-fed mountain stream cascade over 100′ down a vertical rock face.
