Guided canoe tours in Canada

Our guided multi day canoe trips on the Athabasca River in Alberta are fully outfitted with transport to and from Edmonton. Training on a lake is part of the preparation for the canoe tours.

canoeing, canoe, tours, trips, canadaNatives taught the early traders and trappers 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 or wherever we find a good spot along the shores.

Camping in the 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.

The canoes can safely transport 900 ponds, that means two persons with their equipment like tents and personal gear plus part of the group  equipment. Several hours of canoe training and practise are part of the program.

This (family) trip exceeded all expectations. Fantastic activities, very well organized and put together with a great guide and a great bunch of people. My children and I had a brilliant time and are sad it's come to an end.

Pippa W. 2018, Tour J
Absolutely marvelous! Challenging for me sometimes but great consideration taken by trip leader to make sure everyone, including me, was doing well. Loved leader's knowledge of area. Trip leader (Sebastian) was the most personable + competent leader I have ever hoped for.
