This small intimate tour provides a journey of a lifetime through one of the wildest, diverse and unbelievably beautiful parts of the world. Starting and finishing in Vancouver, we explore some of the most scenic places in British Columbia & Alberta. We navigate routes that are embedded into Canadian History: we follow the Fraser River as we leave Vancouver, make our way to the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide before following the Skeena River and embark on a cruise on the Pacific Ocean.
