We had partially covered this route last time on our K1200S sportbike but unfortunately was not able to complete the Nakusp-Kaslo-Ainsworth-Nelson loop for lack of time. This time, we made sure we have enough time to circle to entire loop. And for a change, on our convertible!
This route takes you to enchanting hot springs and to rugged mountain wilderness, of winding roads, cliffs and majestic lakes. With stops to soak in luxurious, mineral-rich pools, this 300km route - excluding ferry distances - is a pleasure to drive.
An added bonus: we get to test our Porsche 911 Turbo over twisties and turns! While this car by its very nature begs to be driven with verve, this all-wheel drive power house commands respect - no frills, no gimmicks, no exaggerations that other makes claim of their cars. Just pure power! With all wheels firmly planted, with both turbos growling and begging to be pushed even harder, it sure puts a smile on every turn you make. Other than the Bugatti Veyron, this is truly the ultimate driving machine!
The drive was something we will never forget!
