We have travelled in the famed Temagami Wilderness area for years, along both the north and south ends of the region. And for years we had looked at the map and dreamed of connecting some of our southern routes to our northern ones by navigating a section of the Sturgeon River.
A very warm winter added a lot of questions about what sort of ice conditions we’d find in the remote river sections. The heavy snow and rain that persisted throughout much of the winter contributed to lots of blow down and rough portage trails. A road closure at the north end of the region unexpectedly lengthened the trip by 20%. But through it all we enjoyed an incredible journey traversing this beautiful region from south to north!
