Trip Details

This trip is designed for novice to intermediate paddlers and begins at Rock Island Lodge with basic group skills and trip orientation. After lunch, shuttle to Terrace Bay to catch a boat charter from Terrace Bay to the Slates and for six days of paddling exploration.

The Slate Islands form a circular archipelago of more than 20 islands created when a meteorite struck the earth billions of years ago.

The shoreline presents a visual smorgasbord of geological features associated with meteor impacts including shatter-cones – cone like rock fractures created by the shock waves that reverberated following the million megaton TNT impact blast.

They are home to Ontario’s greatest concentration of woodland caribou. Your enjoyment will be enhanced if you are in good physical condition and comfortable with wilderness camping. Lake Superior is mostly calm in summer, but when it gets rough we enjoy the view from shore.

Although each group will travel according to its own pace, we tend to spend most of the day on the water leaving lots of time for covering the distance and exploring.
