Trip Details

From its source at Missinaibi Lake, the river rushes 350 miles North to James Bay, over Precambrian granite, through string bogs and marshes, and all within a Provincial Park.

Our guided trip catches the river at the ghost town of Peterbell (accessible only by train), and over 100 miles of river, we drop 300 feet.

Although the pace is relaxed enough to allow for whitewater instruction and plenty of relaxation time, this trip does require an intermediate level of general fitness with a few longer days on the water.

Truly, one of the best ways to experience one of the world’s great heritage rivers!

How To Join The Trip

It is a short flight from Toronto (Pearson airport or Downtown airport) to Timmins, which is the gateway to Missinaibi. Both Porter Airlines and Air Canada offer multiple flights daily. It is recommended to arrive the afternoon / evening before trip departure (accommodation included in trip fee) and at the end of the expedition departure on the same day after 4pm is recommended. Missinaibi Headwaters Outfitters is happy to arrange for an airport pick up if required.


Available July annually. Other trips available throughout the summer.
