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.

What People are Saying
Excellent, we loved every minute. Deanna was fantastic, very knowledgeable, great with the kids (they loved her), multi lingual, great cook + guide. We wished we could have spent longer on holiday.

Incredibly beautiful woods and floods. Slept very well in our tents, ate excellent meals, for families like ours great, but maybe not for every family. Larry seems to be an extremely experienced guide, knows what to do in every situation, always friendly, felt always safe.

Family B. 2017, Tour K5
Really great! The hikes were fun and challenging enough to feel like each one was an accomplishment. Got some great photos and made some great memories. The food was awesome too and Ian was super accommodating.
