Trip Details

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in the summer of 2017, Naturally Superior Adventures is recreating the Canadian fur trade experience with the Voyageur Canoe Brigades on Lake Superior, the world’s largest freshwater lake.

Travel in a replica 36-foot voyageur canoe along the same rugged, unspoiled coastline that was paddled by Canada’s First Nations people and fur-trading voyageurs nearly two centuries ago. Voyageur canoes are 36-feet long, 5 feet wide and carry 12 to 14 paddlers plus their supplies. They’re very stable, seaworthy, easy to paddle and well suited to the BIG lake. They are perfect for beginner to expert paddlers.

Each brigade will be guided by well-qualified trip leaders who are also talented wilderness chefs. You’ll enjoy hearty and healthy meals that include plenty of fresh foods. Spend your nights wilderness camping on the shore of Lake Superior.

Brigade #3 Lawren Harris Country: Hattie Cove to Rossport

The rugged coastline, stark islands and hardscrabble villages of Lake Superior’s north shore inspired some of Canada’s most famous landscape paintings. Today, Pic Island in Neys Provincial Park still captivates the senses the same way it did in the 1920s, when Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris immortalized its smooth curves on canvas.

In fact, this 120-km stretch of wilderness coastline is one of the most infrequently travelled paddling routes on the Great Lakes. You’ll revel in the stunning scenery and intense solitude—the perfect elements to inspire your own photographs and sketches.
