“When you look at the face of Canada and study the geography carefully, you come away with the feeling that one could have designed the canoe first and then set about to conceive a land in which it could flourish” –Bill Mason, Path of the Paddle
At Wilderness North we are proud to be Canadian and we have always held a strong connection with this quote from Canadian naturalist, artist and canoe-lover Bill Mason. Moving forward the connection of Canadians to the canoe lives on. It holds the history of our country, the courage of a paddler, the nostalgia of a family trip, and the reminder of a calmer way of life. Both The Canoe by Goh Iromoto in partnership with Destination Ontario, and this video by National Geographic’s and River Roots capture the heart of Canadian Canoe Culture.
Enjoy as National Geographic shares the feeling of a canoe trip with Wilderness North through Wabakimi Provincial Park, where culture, adventure and nature flourish.
