Our Canoe Expeditions

If you are an avid canoeist, you know that these fifteen wilderness rivers comprise the list of legendary northern descents of which all paddlers dream. Most have exhilarating whitewater combined with tranquil paddling and a few are flatwater only. We have planned these expeditions to maximize your enjoyment of the highlights of each river and our experienced and knowledgeable guides go far beyond the typical canoe trip in sharing with you hidden secrets and lore of each one, including flora, fauna and unique phenomena.
