September 26th will see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge head to Bella Bella, an Indian Reserve community also known as Waglisla. They'll also head into the Great Bear Rainforest on the Pacific coast of British Columbia. The temperate rainforest covers 6.4 million hectares so it's fair to say that William and Kate will only be getting a taster of what it has to offer. Given their love of all things environmental, this is sure to be a highlight of the tour.
The following day will see the couple complete the first part of their 2016 stay in British Columbia with a visit to Kelowna before they head to Yukon and a trip to Whitehorse, the region's capital. They will also spend September 28th in Yukon where they will visit other parts of Whitehorse and head to Carcross.
September 29th sees William and Kate head back to British Columbia where they will carry out engagements in Victoria. The following day sees them head out to the islands of Haida Gwaii before returning to Victoria for the last day of their tour on October 1st. One week, eight locations, a whole diary of engagements. Royal Tour Canada is starting to take shape.
