VOYAGEUR TRIP

This trip is an amazing trip!!! Running only once a year we gather 16 like-minded adventures and load up a 36 foot replica voyageur canoe to paddle from Fort Francis to Kenora Ontario along the historic route the voyageurs would have paddled while they opened up Canada. This is a truly unique and amazing way to see our area!

The route starts between Fort Frances, travels along Rainy River, and then follows the east shoreline of Lake of the Woods, all the way up to Kenora. We chose this route based on the route that was originally traveled by the Montreal Voyageurs. The specific method we used to map out our day to day route was using old trip log books and viewing where people before us have traveled in the past.

Throughout our trip we will be stopping off in a few cities such as Emo, Rainy River, Sioux Narrows and Kenora. During these stops we will be able to re-stock any necessities, and also buy a few treats for ourselves. These cities are also useful for emergency situations.

Along our route there are also many different interesting sites that we wished to see, which include; Sioux Narrows Provincial Park, Lake of the Woods Provincial Park, Hungry Hall, Sault Rapids, turtle portage, rate portage, sable island, windy point, Coney island and of course many more, including the areas that we have yet to discover.

Our Voyageur Canoe is a great way to get your group together and out for a paddle.  It comes with an experienced guide and can accommodate 12 paddles, a great idea for a birthday party.
