Paddle the historic water routes of the fur traders, voyageurs and explorers like Alexander Henry, the Frobosher Brothers, Kelsey and others. On any of these trips you will enjoy the picturesque beauties of Canada’s pristine wilderness while exploring historic fur trading water routes. You will see fantastic sunsets, Northern Lights and listen to loons while you are relaxing your aching muscles around the campfire at night. Along the way expect to watch beavers, otters, muskrats, moose, bear, birds and abundant waterfowl.
For levels of difficulty, maps and other information contact us. To make these trips more interesting, we can suggest books to read about Alexander Henry and the Frobosher Brothers.
We have a fleet of 16’ aluminum Grumman canoes, which are stable, quite fast and easy to paddle. We can deliver the canoes to various drop off points to start your trip off right, or we can ferry your vehicles or canoes where ever you desire.
