Waterfalls and Wilderness ~ An Epic Train- in Wilderness Canoe Adventure in Wabakimi Provincial Park
Wabakimi Park is the planet’s largest wilderness paddling area, sees only a few hundred paddlers per year. Your canoe adventure starts with a “bush-train" ride into the Wabakimi wilderness to see and experien'ce the boreal forest and Canadian Shield. After unloading your canoe and gear from the train, your paddling journey begins. While paddling and portaging through the park, you might happen upon a rare and elusive woodland caribou, a huge Canadian moose, a beaver, a playful otter or a majestic wolf.
As you canoe through the pristine waterways, you’ll have a chance to drop your line and possibly catch the biggest fish of your life. At the end of the day as you sit around the campfire and enjoy the sunset, you will hear the call of the loons off in the distance. The delicious wild blueberries alone will bring you back to see us!
