Our trip starts in Toronto on 7 July 2016. From there we head to Tobermorey on Georgian Bay, before getting the Chi-Cheemaun ferry to Manitoulin Island. We duck into the US briefly to go south around Lake Superior, before heading through George Washington and Kabetogama State Forests back into Canada. At Eagle Dogtooth Provincial Park we head west, through Manitoba and Saskatchewan to Hanna, Alberta. Then we head southwest to Calgary before gearing up for the hills of Banff, Glacier and Mount Revelstoke National Parks. The final stage is more British Columbia hills before we follow the Fraser River from Hope to Vancouver, where we’ll holiday with Chris’ parents!

We think this leg will be about 3,300 miles (5,300km) and take about 10 weeks. A rough map of our (intended!) route and our itinerary is below.
