An awesome ride for me and the wife on a Harleysville! Plenty of curves. Good food and relaxation. No traffic or line ups! Just mountains, lakes and a bunch of good pubs!

By car or motorcycle, it's a beautiful ride! Mountains, valleys, lakes, and good roads make this a very nice ride. I would not suggest a motorcycle ride in Autumn, as you could come across snow (as early as Late September). However, it's a nice loop...More

This loop has so many wonderful interesting, picturesque, less-traveled destinations. We drove most of it in parts during a week's vacation. Recommend Sandpoint and Hope Idaho, Lake Pend Oreille (where you could vacation an entire week alone!), Creston Wildlife Management Area, BC Route 3 East-West,...More

The Selkirk Loop is a huge network of roads throughout the Kootenai region crossing 2 countries. You can spend weeks traveling all of these roads. My advice is to plan your route, take your time, stop a lot, bring your lunch and enjoy.

I've only driven part of the route, from Castlegar, BC to Bonner's Ferry, Idaho. Spectacular, especially if you were born in Toronto.

We drove most of the Selkirk Loop in late March. Nice that there aren't many folks out, but many attractions are not open til May or later. Much of the loop on both sides of the border is sparsely settled, so beware those little dots...More

Don't forget your camera, because this is a ride you will want to have a record of. This area both North & South of the border is a motorcyclist's dream come true. Breathtaking vistas and quality, twisty roads. It doesn't get any better than this...More

Beautiful Views around the Selkirk Loop. So many spots to stop and take photos. You can take several days exploring the side trips and the towns. I can't imagine getting tired of this wonderful scenic road. I'm ready to go again.

We finally drove all of the Selkirk Loop this summer. We have also done some of the side trips. There are so many beautiful spots to stop and enjoy both in Canada and the US. I would recommend spending several days doing it. Take your...More

Absolutely beautiful! Allow more time than you think you will need because speed limits are very low (60-80 kph on the eastern portion and 80-90 kph on the western portion). But you don't want to speed through it anyway, right?! Pull out and enjoy the...More

For scenery it would be The North Kootenay Lake Silvery Slocan Super side trip and the Lake Pend Oreille Kootenai River Super Side trip. Best to do the Clark Fork River while heading North for the view and the pullouts. But... More

That is tough to answer. The loop can be done in a 1/2 day, but that could easily be stretched out if you stop a lot and take photo's. I live in Creston and can visit frequently. I think it would be a days travel each way... More
