Why trip with us?
There are many companies out there offering world class canoe tripping service, so why pick us?
Our tripping started with humble beginnings leading youth and adults through the WildWise program at Manitoba Pioneer Camp, A wilderness canoe camp on Shoal lake. Clean easy-breezy “wilderness 5 star hotel” every night kind of trips were not part of the program there. Rather Canoe trips were a means to experience ones truest self through hardship and adventure in a true Canadian wilderness setting. Our food would be considered a little more advanced from that of a camp menu and our gear set shinier, more up to date but we would like to think that we still hold true to those core values learned at camp, through many summers spent in positive community and of course the canoe.
So what can we offer you-
Winnipeg Manitoba, is located below the greater Nelson River water basin area and Lake Winnipeg. Home to some of the best rivers and lake systems on the planet, Ranging from entry to the advanced level.
Our paddle Canada and Sirius first aid guides will navigate you through the vast Boreal landscape, while tending to your trip needs such as cooking meals made from our gourmet food menu and providing a safe fun atmosphere.
Our trips take place in a variety of locations including Shoal lake and Lake of the woods, the ELA, the Turtle river system, Manigotagan and Bloodvein rivers but is certainly not limited to these areas. If you have a custom trip in mind or area you’ve been dreaming of, we can make that happen for you, as we host custom trips based on your preferences and specifications.
An important acknowledgement; Winnipeg Manitoba is located on the original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
All of our trips take place on traditional indigenous land. We acknowledge the importance of the Canoe as a traditional indigenous vessel, as well as the historical appropriation and extortion of this instrument.
We strive to respect the land and waters we travel through and the people that occupy it both past and present.
We endeavour toward Low/no trace camping meaning we pack out what we pack in, while trying to keep our footprint as small as possible.
Thanks for reading, We look forward to tripping with you.
