Overview

As we embark on the most classic of wilderness adventures—the quintessential canoe trip—we do so with a Quiet twist.

Every inch of this adventure invites you into the present moment. Waking up to a symphony of birdsong as the morning light shines through your tent. The warmth of the fire by your feet as you take your first sip of coffee. The soft swish of your paddle moving through water as you take the day’s first strokes.

Of course we can’t control the wind, the waves or the weather.

If a headwind blows waves at our bows or if the sky clouds over and rain starts to fall, we treat these moments as an obstacle course to mindfulness—we practice the presence that grounds us as the world around us whirls. In challenge, too, we find ourselves centered. We treat the portage trails as our training grounds. We enjoy the satisfaction of being present and prepared for any obstacle.

When the sun breaks back through the clouds we take an extra long breath and enjoy the warmth of its glow.

Our days on these trips will vary. Sometimes we’ll get an early start and make miles from campsite to campsite. Other times we’ll find an island and set up camp for multiple nights so we can choose how we’d like to spend our days: resting, writing and watching the clouds, or exploring our surroundings.

There will be time to be solo and time to connect—time to find your quiet together and apart.

Note: The route for this Temagami canoe trip will be Lake Temagami to Diamond Lake to Wakimika Lake to Obabika Lake and back to Lake Temagami, for a total of approximately 100 kilometers of paddling and 3 kilometers of portaging.

Itinerary

Day 1
Day 1 - Meet Up:

We will meet you at the access point on the morning of Day One. We’ll have a brief trip orientation to our style of wilderness camping and canoe tripping.

Get to know who you’ll be paddling with, ask your questions, and we’ll double check that your gear is waterproofed, if you require. Then we will load the canoes and launch into our canoe adventure.

After a brief refresher on paddling strokes on the water, we will set off from the put-in and head out to find the first campsite.

Once we find our campsite, you’ll set up your tents, gather firewood and explore the area before dinner. Enjoy quiet time around the fire listening to the loons or the occasional barred owl, before tucking in for the night.

Distance paddled: ~17-21 kilometers
Portage: none

Meals: L, D

Day 2
Days 2 through 8 - Let's Explore:

After a hearty breakfast each morning we’ll continue our exploration of one of Temagami’s favoured canoe routes. We’ll pay close attention to Mother Nature’s signs. She’ll be key in determining how far we can go each day.

There are stunning side trips along this route and we’ve built in some time to our itinerary to search for pictographs or hike up to lookouts.
