This sea kayak adventure takes place along the rugged coastal waters of Lake Superior Provincial Park, spanning over 80 km of undeveloped coastline bordered by striking pink granite or dark volcanic rock. We travel through time passing by the eroded roots of the oldest mountains on earth. Moose and caribou occasionally emerge from the dense northern forest to wander the beaches and coves.
Designed to encompass all skill levels, at a pace suitable for novice paddlers.
