Name Paddling the Athabasca and Mackenzie rivers in Canada

I will leave Vancouver, British Columbia for Jasper, Alberta by bicycle mid April (800 kilometers). Once in Jasper I will paddle a kayak down the Athabasca, Slave, and Mackenzie Rivers to my final destination, the Arctic Ocean. (3600 kilometers)

I will camp on various beaches and small towns and I have already plotted a course as well as all towns and major rapids along the way. Because the trip will take about 4 months I will have to post supplies and food ahead of myself to remote towns on the rivers.

There are several places along the way to rent kayaks for long term if anyone is interested in a portion of the trip, most kayaks can be returned in Inuvik (final destination). Once in Inuvik vehicle rentals are available to drive home.

Is anyone interested in exploring Norther Canada with me?
