There are three exciting rivers just North of Sudbury, Ontario. We can help you with pricing and planning out your vacation. Enjoy pleasant mixtures of paddling flat water through marshes, viewing wildlife, followed by exciting descents in rapids, class I to IV categories.


Canoeing and Kayaking, Spanish River, Wanapitei River, or book our cabin on Biscotasi Lake

Avoid the hassels of shuttling vehicles. You can be flown to the starting points and picked up as well.

Your fly-in vacation starts as you board the legendary and reliable bush plane called the Beaver. Have your camera ready to photograph the River or lake of your choice as you fly to your destination. You can choose between landing at an outpost camp or a drop camp. Our outpost camp on Biscotasi Lake is a fine starting point for the Spanish River.

You will paddle flat water on the lakes, exploring coves and islands, marshes and creeks/rivers. The famous Spanish River offers 3, 5 or 7 day trips, paddling flat water and Class I to IV rapids, where portages and campsites are marked.

The Wanapitei River starts at Scotia Lake. It offers lots of camping spots as you paddle through marshes and a moving river. Plan a 4 to 7 days trip at least for this one.

The Mississaugi River is a combination of flat water paddling, Class I and Class II rapids with easy pick up points on inland lakes.

“If it is love that binds people to places in this nation of rivers and in this river of nations then one enduring expression of that simple truth, is surely the canoe.”
- James Raffan, adventurer & author
