HU CanWest July 13-16, 2023 - 20th Anniversary!

The 20th Horizons Unlimited Canada West Travellers Meeting will be in Nakusp, BC from July 13-16, 2023. Super riding in the area, both on and off-road, and a very friendly town on a lovely lake.

Yes, you read that right: it's the TWENTIETH EDITION of HU CanWest Travellers Meetings!

Join us for a few days of great camaraderie, good food, terrific presentations, and a community of people who don't think you're crazy for wanting to ride to the middle of nowhere.

#HUCanwest is where countless adventure travel dreams have been born, and where many, many travellers have shared their own stories and insights. Join us there!

It's the perfect mini-trip to include your riding season and the best time to plant the seeds of adventure, especially if you're new to motorcycle travel. There are plenty of practical workshops and presentations to fuel your own adventures and travel-planning.

ARE YOU NEWER TO MOTO TRAVEL and wondering what's all the HUb-bub about? Treat HU CanWest as your own little microadventure: you have to pack your gear, load it on the bike, figure out what you want to bring, plan your route (it's beautiful riding in BC, by the way), meet new people, make new friends, learn new things, and then return home all inspired for the next (maybe bigger, maybe longer and further) trip.

Registration for HU CanWest is open now with early bird rates, so mark your calendars and plan to be there!
Tentative schedules and presenter lists will be posted on the HU Canada West page, and we'll be adding more as you volunteer to talk about your latest or greatest trip! Remember, there's always loads of interest and request for practical how-to sessions as well. Start here to register as a presenter:

We'll be there, and we hope to see you there too!
Grant Johnson
Seek, and ye shall find.

Inspiring, Informing and Connecting travellers since 1997!

New to Horizons Unlimited?

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
