This mythical downstream odyssey takes us through the past and into Canada’s modern cityscapes. Soaring through mountain mists, you will share the secrets of the wilderness and feel the winds while rushing headlong through remote valleys. Follow the gentle current as it wends its way through pastoral landscapes, then experience the excitement of clinging to the brink of a waterfall or plunging into turbulent white water. Historic riverside battlements give way to busy harbours and the gleaming grandeur of today’s concrete, glass and steel.

Length: 20:00
