This is a guide to the trips I have, or a contributor has completed in Ontario and the Great Lakes. The routes have the potential to be quite dangerous, if you are attempting to recreate a past trip on the blog, please be sure it is suitable to your skill level and you have the proper safety gear. If you are unsure, there are many guides and outfitters who can assist you on your travels. None of these posts are recommending that you recreate one of our trips.

There is no better way to gain an appreciation for nature, wildlife, and yourself then by spending time outdoors seeing how beautiful and diverse this region can be. This website is my hobby; I hope you can enjoy all the work that goes into it. If you find any typos or inaccuracies, please let me know. I hope you enjoy the posts and stay safe on your own travels!

Here are the criteria I used to pick these routes:

  1. Parking must be available, safe, and legal. Parking on shoulders, lawns, fields or in a non-safe manor is not encouraged.
  2. Routes are picked to limit portaging. The routes focus on paddling quality, as much as possible.
  3. Most importantly, none of the routes trespass, encroach on wildlife preserves where entry would be detrimental to bird migrations or require any disruption to the natural habitat. We are just visitors to these areas, zero impact is the goal of any trip.


If you have any routes you would like added, please send a message through the contacts page!

P.S. Please wear and use all of your safety equipment!
