A Once in a Lifetime Keele River Canoeing Experience

“Have you done much paddling?” I casually asked the man beside me as we filed into the dining room at an Edmonton hotel. What else do you say to a fellow paddler you’ve never met before on the eve of a two-week, 400-kilometre canoe trip down the Keele River in the Northwest Territories? He was fit, 50ish and wore the requisite quick-dry clothing. I was stunned when he told me that his paddling was limited…

A Weekend Canoe Trip on the Red Deer River

If you're looking for an easy, family-friendly summer adventure in Alberta try canoeing or kayaking the Red Deer River. Although it has a good rate of flow, there are very few, if any rapids to deal with.

Off The Beaten Path Alberta With Our Dog On The Peace River

Canoeing the Peace River in Northern Alberta

Unless you're from northern Alberta, the Peace River probably doesn't register on your radar. Yet it's a huge river that dramatically cuts across the province for over 1,000 kilometres. Starting in the Rocky Mountains of northern BC, the river flows northeast through Alberta to empty into the Slave River, one of the Mackenzie River tributaries. The Mackenzie is the tenth longest river in the world! Canoeing the Peace River is a fabulous Alberta adventure but…

You can also go canoeing on the Yukon River via a 30 kilometre section from Marsh Lake south of…

The Next Morning The Smoke Is Gone To Be Replaced By Fierce Winds

Canoeing the Cameron River to Yellowknife, NWT

The Northwest Territories offers some of the best canoeing in Canada. But almost all of the canoe routes require an expensive float plane ride. I wanted to do something that didn't cost a lot. With some help from Gary at Overlander Sports I put together an itinerary that only required a one hour van shuttle from Yellowknife to KM 55 on the Ingraham Trail (also known as Highway 4). The plan was to spend four nights…
