Guide Profile: Anna Parker

Like so many other river guides, Anna originally hails from Southern Ontario. Her love for wilderness travel started at summer camps and then outdoor centres across Ontario, taking teenage punks into the backcountry. Her ability to convince 16yr olds that travelling without phones or showers for weeks on end is actually fun has brought her throughout Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and the Australian bush. She now calls Thunder Bay on the North shore of Lake Superior home – but still finds herself being called to waters further North from time to time. For Anna, there is nothing better than good coffee, great food, and a good laugh on the river. She can be found at the bottom of any set with a huge smile on her face.
