Three weeks and 160km of uninterrupted winter wilderness on a Canadian Heritage River, need we say more? (If “yes”, read on below).
The “Upper Missinaibi” section continues where the “Missinaibi Headwaters” expedition leaves off. We’ll continue north, downstream, through 160km of the steepest section of this whitewater river, passing rapids and waterfalls aplenty.
Multi-week trips like these are what we dreamed about when we started Lure of the North, so we’re extremely excited about offering our longest trip to date! The level of immersion from three weeks of winter wandering will be profound and your body and mind will sing from the joys and hardship of a physical winter expedition. This will truly be an adventure of a lifetime.
This will be our Explorer’s Club Expedition of 2019, meaning a flexible attitude is required. Neither Kielyn or Dave have walked this section of river in the winter, so every rapid and challenge will be a new discovery for the whole team. This historically important travel route would have been snowshoed regularly in years past, but we will very likely be the first team to walk this section of river in many decades!
