Part 1: Train
Begin your adventure in Toronto at Union Station by boarding an iconic VIA rail train car. Enjoy watching the city fade away as you make your way north and west, bound for the Allanwater River. On the last portion of your train ride, you will be joined by Wilderness North guides, bringing with them all the equipment, skills and local knowledge necessary for an adventure in Wabakimi Provincial Park. We pair local guides with whitewater guides to provide expert navigation and interpretation, offering a quintessentially Canadian experience through lived history.
Part 2: Embrace Canadian Canoe Culture
Your canoe route will follow the Allanwater River through pool and drop rapids, around powerful waterfalls and across pristine Northern lakes. This route is ideal for paddlers of all skill levels with clearly marked portage trails and beautiful camping opportunities. The untouched nature of these shores, lined with black spruce and lichen are home to some of Canada’s most breathtaking animals such as caribou, black bear, and moose. Explore exquisite cabins constructed by the famous philosopher Wendell Beckwith on your paddle through Whitewater Lake.
Part 3: Wilderness Lodge
Paddle in to Wilderness North’s lodge and experience 2 nights of uninterrupted and remote wilderness adventures. Wake up to coffee in your lakefront cabin, spend your day adventuring and then let the night take hold under the northern lights.
Part 4: Iconic Float Plane
After two nights at our remote lodge your private plane will whisk you back on your journey home. Whitewater Lake becomes your runway as the float plane lifts you above the tree line revealing the seemingly endless boreal forest.
