Canoeing Canada’s more Remote Waterways

For those of you that like to be on the water but well away from the crowds, then Canada has so much to offer. And if you have white water canoeing experience then the following may well be for you.

The adventure is based around Lake Athabasca in Saskatchewan which ensures you will have left all but the most intrepid travellers. The southern edge of this fascinating and colourful lake is home to the most northerly major giant dune field which can be 100 feet high. As these dunes slowly move, they swallow the forest while also uncovering ghostly stands of previously covered forests.

The region around the lake offers you two exciting and challenging canoe trips. The William River experience takes you through white water challenges and then through Athabasca’s largest dune field. Finally the river broadens in to a colourful estuary – shades of bronze and copper – before it empties in to the lake.

The second challenge is the MacFarlane River which empties in to the eastern end of the lake. This has longer stretches of white water and a canyon with three dramatic waterfalls before it cuts through the dunes and ends at the Lake.

This will definitely be a trip of big horizons, few people and amazing canoeing. Give us a call to start planning this bespoke, tailor made trip of a lifetime.
