Canoeing is the quintessential way to explore Canada’s wilderness. With over 250,000 lakes and rivers, it is no surprise that Ontario is home some of the world’s most spectacular flat water and whitewater paddling routes and races.

The canoe is celebrated at many festivals and its significance is showcased at The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough. For the best possible self-guided or guided experience, we suggest using a local expert outfitter who will provide specialized trip planning, high quality gear and exceptional tasty meals. Professional guides add much value by sharing their knowledge of wilderness canoe tripping, local history, ecology and more.

On remote northern epic expeditions in Wabakimi, Quetico, Woodland Caribou or Missinaibi River Provincial Parks, you’ll paddle through the timeless landscape of the boreal forest and see abundant wildlife like moose, bear and caribou. Classic, less remote, canoeing destinations like Algonquin, Temagami, Killarney, French River and Mattawa River are ideal for people with a little or a lot of wilderness canoeing skills. There’s no better way to start or end your adventure than in rustic luxury at a unique wilderness lodge or log cabin.
