canoeing the Athabasca River in Alberta, Canada Natives taught the early traders and trappers in Canada the use of the canoe. For the fur traders the rivers and lakes were the only east-west roads through the northern forests. During our canoe trip on the Athabasca River you follow their routes while we worry about the logistics. We supply all necessary equipment and meals, our leaders are expert guides who know the river, its history and importance in earlier and modern times and the wildlife you might see. We pitch our tents on islands in the Athabasca River or wherever we find a good spot along the shores.

Camping in the Canadian wilderness does not have to be uncomfortable, your guide knows how to set up camp without inviting curious animals. It is an exhilarating feeling when you realize that you and your few friends are probably the only humans for miles around.

We can also drop you off on a remote island in the Athabsca River in northern Alberta and leave you camping alone for a few days in the wilderness with nothing but the river and forests for miles around. Tour L, Canoe to your own island

This tour is a really good trip with the right amount of hiking and sightseeing. I loved that every park was visited and this shows truly the best of the Canadian Rockies.

Absolutely Fabulous. I wasn't sure if this would work for me as I have not done group tours before. Parker was incredible. He took all our needs into account. I have totally enjoyed this experience and would certainly love to come back.
