Verlauf
 
Day 1 Vancouver
Welcome to Vancouver, Canada. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm at the hotel, where you can introduce yourself to your fellow travellers and tour leader. If you arrive early in Vancouver, why not take a walk around the Victorian buildings in the historic Gastown neighbourhood or wander through the behemoth urban forest that is Stanley Park. Captivated by Vancouver and worried you wont have enough time to see what the city has to offer? Remember youll be back to bookend your journey.

Accommodation: Accent Inn Vancouver Airport / 10551 St. Edwards Drive Roman St. Germain, Richmond, Vancouver V6X 3L8 / Tel: +1 6042733311

The Welcome Meeting will take place at 6 pm. Its important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details, an optional food kitty contribution and next of kin information at this time. See ‘Important notes for more information regarding the food kitty. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place. Free shuttle from Vancouver airport to the hotel: The hotel offers a free 24-hour shuttle service. Courtesy shuttle pick-up and drop-off areas are located at the green canopy outside of Arrivals Level 2 International Terminal and outside the Arrivals Level 1 Domestic Terminal. The shuttle runs every half hour.

Day 2 Whistler
Today, leave Vancouver behind and travel to the outdoor mecca that is Whistler. Drive along the Sea to Sky Highway, widely considered one of the most scenic routes in the world, with a stop at Squamish along the way. If time permits, it may be possible to take a short hike to the massive granite monolith known as The Chief before continuing to Whistler. While there are no included activities planned for your time in Whistler, there are plenty of optional activities to take part in during your stay. Hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining and kayaking are just some of whats on offer. Have a chat to your leader about how to go about booking and taking part in these activities. Youll have time today on arrival to get your bearings before you settle into the campground for the night.

Accommodation: Riverside Campground

Travel time: Approximately 2½ hours.

Day 3 Whistler
Rise and shine for a free day in this outdoor adventure hub. Remember that all activities in Whistler are optional and some may come at an additional cost. Zip-lining tours are an amazing way of getting an aerial view over Fitzsimmons Creek and, if youre lucky, seeing some bears along the way. During the warmer months, hiking is a great (and inexpensive) way to get the lay of the land, just keep in mind that the rugged terrain can make for challenging trails. There are also some great cycle networks in Whistler, so you have the option of hiring a bike and riding to one of the nearby lakes. Dont forget to spend some time exploring Whistler Village, a charming pedestrian-only town with plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants.

Accommodation: You will stay at the same hotel as yesterday.

Day 4 Wells Gray Provincial Park
Make sure youve got a book, a podcast or some sparkling conversation ready as you settle in for a long drive to Wells Gray Provincial Park. Youll arrive in time to set up camp for the evening on a rustic cowboy ranch. Enjoy a cold beverage in an authentic saloon and then relax with dinner by the campfire.

Day 5 Wells Gray Provincial Park
This morning youll travel deeper into Wells Gray Provincial Park, disembarking at Clearwater Lake. Pack your camping equipment into a canoe and cruise into the water.

After some instruction from the canoeing guides, paddle about 2 - 4 hours to a secluded beach campsite. Set up camp for the night and spend some time swimming or exploring before cooking dinner. The campsite tonight is a little more basic than others on the trip. It has tables, fire-pits and tent sites, but only pit toilets and no showers. But trust us, the stunning location more than makes up for the rustic facilities. Included activities: - Overnight canoe trip

Accommodation: You will stay at the same hotel as yesterday.

Travel Time: Approximately 4 hours
Please note: No canoeing experience is needed as the canoe guides are also instructors and will help you to perfect the Canadian canoeing technique, but you will need a basic level of fitness.

Day 6 Wells Gray Provincial Park

Pack up your gear and hit the water again, alighting along the way at another beach for a picnic lunch. Back at the starting point, help unload and store the canoes and then drive to the ranch, checking out some amazing waterfalls along the way.

Accommodation: You will stay at the same hotel as yesterday.
