Trip Details

This incredible backcountry fly-in adventure takes you deep into Canada’s boreal forest in Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. Be immersed in a timeless landscape where the only sounds you’ll hear are the wind, water and haunting call of the loon.

Your first night in Canada will be spent at a hotel in Thunder Bay. The next day you’ll be shuttled to the airport and flown to Red Lake where you’ll be met by Red Lake Outfitters. You’ll spend the afternoon in an orientation session that includes a 2-hour paddling review. Enjoy dinner at Antonios and spend the night at a Red Lake Motel.

After a hearty breakfast, you and your guides will fly on a De Havilland Beaver floatplane into Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. After being dropped off, you’ll set up camp and enjoy the complete solitude of the Canadian wilderness.

The next 4 days will be spent paddling, portaging and camping in heart of the Boreal Forest. Learn about the unique ecology of the Park and the cultural significance of the landscape. Visit ancient First Nation pictograph sites near the Bloodvein River.

Watch for iconic Canadian wildlife such as moose, bear and the elusive woodland caribou. Cast your line into the pristine water where walleye and lake trout are plentiful.

Enjoy delicious, healthy backcountry meals. Learn open fire cooking techniques, tarp riggings, knots, paddle skills and more.

Relax and share stories around an evening campfire. Marvel at the brilliance of the universe as you gaze upon at the millions of stars above. Replenish your soul in the solitude of this remote wilderness.
