Big Canoe Explorer Tours

Engage with local heritage through an interactive paddling adventure.
Join us for a rewarding canoe tour full of fun and adventure. Your "gouvernail" (guide), will share stories and lore of the local area as you actively participate in a "day in the life" of a historic Voyageur (traveller). Our replica "canot du nord" holds up to 12 passengers, so teamwork is part of the fun and challenge.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by your guide and taken through a safety briefing and an introduction to paddling. We'll then board the canoe and embark on our tour. The goal is to keep rhythm with our team and enjoy the stories of the "fur trade life" from over a century ago. You'll want to keep a keen eye out for elusive wildlife such as bald eagles, moose, deer, fox, turtles, otters, and migratory waterfowl that often reveal themselves along the shoreline.

The tour is between approximately 1.5 hours to 3 hours long (depending on location and date) and includes a lesson how to paddle, gear (PFD/lifejacket, paddles, safety equipment), fire roasted bannock, and an experienced canoe guide.
Suitable for ages 5 and up as long as children weigh 20lbs and over and accompanied by their parent/guardian. No experience required, just a willingness to follow instruction and paddle as a team.
