Trip Options

We are excited to offer three different backcountry options for the summer of 2021!

Sea Kayaking in the Biosphere - The 30,000 islands of northeast Georgian Bay are a kayaker's paradise. From a few square feet to several square miles, these granite islands form a protective maze for the paddler to explore. We'll camp on rocky outcrops, watch beautiful sunsets and enjoy delicious meals on a 3 or 4 day exploration of this Ontario treasure.

Almaguin Highlands Flatwater Trip - We'll explore the aquatic gems of the Almaguin Highlands on this peaceful 3 day canoe trip. We'll paddle to secluded campsites on rocky knolls, explore a shoreline of dominant old growth white pine and enjoy an immersive and rejuvenating wilderness experience that is perfect for first time campers.

French River Experience - This 4 day river trip provides a taste of whitewater canoeing while exploring one of the more scenic sections of French River Provincial Park. In between paddling journeys we'll have plenty of time for photography, swimming and taking in the picturesque scenery of the French River's natural paradise.
