6-Day Wilderness Canoe Trips

Destination: Phillip Edward Island in Killarney, Ontario

These will be fun and adventurous 7 day canoe trips deep into Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada.

Waterproof canoe packs,

Food (We can accommodate special diets if we are advised beforehand)

Canoes, lifejackets and related equipment

Tents

Guides & Counsellors

You will need only your personal items and a sleeping bag.

We will be covering 5 to 10 km a day at an easy pace, moving through numerous wilderness lakes and gentle rivers in a loop to return to our put in point 6 days later (depending on the trip you have chosen). We plan to be off the water each day by 3 pm to allow everyone plenty of time to relax, swim, fish, explore and enjoy the area we are camping in that night.

Not only will you experience the majesty of canoeing Canada’s wilderness, but also improve and enhance your paddling and wilderness skills as our ORCKA certified guides / instructors lead you on an extended wilderness odyssey that will be the highlight of your summer. You will have ample opportunity to experience equipment and techniques that will ensure that your experience with nature will be a safe, warm dry and comfortable one.

We often see moose, deer, beaver, osprey, loons and may hear wolves howling in the distance at night.

This Wolfmaan Outdoors canoe trip will be an event that will change and enhance your experience of wilderness canoe travel forever more.

Although there is no specific agenda, and the idea of the wilderness adventure is to take your time and explore every part of the area, each day will consist of the following:

  • Waking-up
  • Make breakfast
  • take-down and pack up camp
  • canoe around the island wherever you feel like going
  • Stop for lunch
  • Continue to explore the area
  • Set-up camp for the evening
  • Help create supper
  • Evening campfires and counselling sessions*
