Kayaking

Canadian Shield Adventures offers three kayaking adventures - day trips to either Kakagi Lake or Lake of the Woods, a three day kayak adventure or for the more adventurous - the five day kayak adventure.

DAY TRIPS

Canadian Shield Adventures offers two destination choices for your day trip – Kakagi Lake or Lake of the Woods. All day trips start at 7am with a safety and orienteering briefing & introductory class. It won't take long before you feel comfortable within your kayak and empowered to begin the adventure ahead. Warm muffins and hot coffee or cocoa energize you prior to launching the boats at 8am for Lake of the Woods and 8:30am for Kakagi Lake.

You'll spend your day paddling and exploring the miles of shoreline as well as the numerous islands each lake offers. Points of interest will be marked on maps as well as choice dining sites to enjoy the gourmet lunch that is provided. Be sure to bring a bathing suit as a refreshing dip in the lake will be a welcome way to cool yourself from the heat of the day. A camera is also a must have as wildlife is in abundance- otter, beaver, eagle,  bear and possibly even the elusive moose – not to mention wanting to capture the memories of a day well spent. Meet back at launch at 3pm where a cold beverage and snack await your return.

THREE DAY KAYAK ADVENTURE

Kayaking day trips and multi day adventuresJoin us as we paddle the clear waters of the Burditt – Pipestone – Loonhaunt chain of lakes. Days will be spent paddling these clear lakes and exploring the many miles of shoreline each lake has to offer. Nights will be spent under the stars listening to the call of the loon and the lapping of the water against the shore. We make sure to leave plenty of time each day for swimming, berry-picking or kicking back with a beverage and a great novel. Our guides will impress you with their skill, knowledge and gourmet cooking. This trip either begins or ends with a float plane ride – a perfect trip for families!

FIVE DAY KAYAK ADVENTURE

A trip for the more adventurous and we have to be honest – we think that the Five Day Kayaking Adventure is the trip of a lifetime and the one we most enjoy guiding. Why? Because creation rocks and you get to see it first hand, up close and personal during your five days on the water. We have chosen the Kakagi Lake Loop for this trip – clear, cold water, breathtaking scenery, plenty of wildlife and minimal people.

Days are spent covering many miles, nights are spent under the stars with the soft flicker of the lightening bug or a full moon the only light illuminating your sleeping space. Meals are hearty and there are plenty of trail snacks to keep your strength up along the way. The trip allows for swimming, exploring, picture taking, reading or journaling along the way. Bring your camera and an adventurous spirit and join us for this Five Day Kayaking Adventure.

Hiking

Hiking packages at Canadian Shield AdventuresWe are blessed to live in an area with miles of trails already cut out of the bush ready for us to enjoy. Hiking packages at Canadian Shield Adventures include accommodations, maps, meals and transportation to and from some of the many trails that this area has to offer. Birdwatchers take notice!

This package is less rugged than the biking or kayaking trips and is perfect for those wanting to experience The Shield while still enjoying the comforts of a bed and hot shower. It's also about having time to put your feet up at the end of the day and relax with a great book. These packages are not guided.

WILDLIFE Sightings

Wildlife Sightings - meet the mooseThese trips take place in late summer / early fall - journey to base camp will be by float plane. Transportation on water and hiking will be used to search for moose. Although there is no guarantee of seeing the elusive moose, you'll want to have your camera on hand at all times because other wildlife is in abundance.

Our experienced “hunters” will do their utmost to ensure that every possible effort is made to find this shy, yet magnificent animal.

Biking

Our neck of the woods allows for plenty of amazing biking opportunities

Our neck of the woods allows for plenty of amazing biking opportunities – join us for an exciting day trip or cover some serious miles with the three day bike package. Decommissioned mining and logging roads offer miles of trails deep into the heart of the Canadian Shield.

DAY TRIPS:

Our day starts early to allow for as many wildlife sightings as possible and to take advantage of the cool of the morning. Muffins and coffee or cocoa are provided prior to departure and a hearty lunch is eaten on the trail. Bikes and helmets are included in the trip cost. Bring your camera and water bottle and be ready to get a workout this day. Trips can either be solo or guided.

THREE DAY BIKE PACKAGE:

Get ready to cover some serious miles into the heart of the Canadian Shield. We begin our days with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to that days start point – we then spend the day covering ground – maybe stopping to watch a deer and her fawn or possibly even catching a glimpse of a coyote or two and of course we get off our bikes to rest our legs and eat a fabulous energy enhancing lunch. Our goal is to make it as deep into the Shield as possible – ideally reaching one of the many lakes in our area for a refreshing swim before heading back out to meet our pick up to base camp. A hot shower and delicious meal end each day and then it's off to your cabin to unwind, relax and tuck in, in preparation for another big day tomorrow.
