Self-Guided Canoe Package

Whitewater to Striker’s Point Lodge

Embrace the Paddler Lifestyle

Overview

A scenic float plane drop-off, two nights of fishing the west end of Whitewater Lake, a shoreline hiking trail, and plenty of opportunity to paddle: This self-guided canoe trip has it all. You’ll spend your first two nights at Whitewater Lodge in comfortable accommodations complete with 24-hour electricity, sand beach and sauna. From there, you’ll start heading east, paddling until you reach Ogoki Lodge to camp for your first night on the land.

With the next night on the land as well, you’ll spend the rest of your trip paddling, detouring for a shore lunch, and learning about the incredible history of the area, including a stop at Best Island to explore where Wendell Beckwith spent his days. For your final two nights, Striker’s Point Lodge will be your home base, a full service lodge on the east end of the lake. Enjoy hot coffee delivery in the morning, spend the day on the many beaches in the area or wet a line. Finish your day with some cocktails and a hearty, made from scratch meal.
