Georgian Bay Big Water Expedition

$400.00$1,650.00 CAD

Starting in the town of Killarney, we’ll be heading east to explore the incredible northern shore of Georgian Bay!  We have paddled this area many times, and are confident that it will make an awesome winter destination!

There are many different variations possible, and our route may take us around Phillip Edward Island and back to Killarney; we made head inland through the new Point Grondine Park owned by Wikwemikong First Nations, or we may explore the mouth of the historic French River!

The Joys of Winter Travel!

There is something incredibly satisfying about building a cozy home in the winter wilderness each night, only to break it down the next morning and strike off for parts unknown. Team work is essential, challenges are numerous, the rewards are fantastic and the elation of a hard day’s work and a comfortable camp well earned are feelings that never cease to please! Not everyone is lucky enough to get 2 or 3 weeks off in the winter, so this is your opportunity to experience a travel trip in a more manageable week-long chunk!

Northern Georgian Bay

Georgian Bay is renowned for its crystal clear, pristine water and incredible paddling opportunities.  The section between the town of Killarney and the French River is remote, rugged, wild, and one of our favourite paddling destinations.  We’re only just beginning to realize its potential as great snowshoeing terrain as well!  The “outside” of Phillip Edward Island is an incredible landscape of exposed Canadian Shield dotted with hundreds of small islands.  The exposure can make access difficult for novice paddlers, but it winter it tends to make for easier, wind-swept travel with less snow depth!  What’s not to like!?

Explorer’s Club 2020

LOTN Explorer’s Club 2020!

Because this is a new route that we have not traveled in the winter before, this will be one of our Explorer’s Club trips of 2020. A flexible, open attitude is required.  Conditions will somewhat dictate what is possible on this trip.  Luckily this particular area has numerous travel options.  We will certainly depart and head east from the town of Killarney towards Phillip Edward Island.  From there we may circumnavigate the island and return to town, or we may cut north, inland, through Point Grondine Park, or we may continue further eastward towards the mouth of the French River!  We’ll have a better sense of ice conditions on the “big water” as the winter progresses.

65 – 80km (Variations are possible)


From the town of Killarney exploring eastward in northern Georgian Bay, around Phillip Edward Island, and/ or to the French River!


This is a travel oriented trip, meaning we'll get up, strike camp, load our toboggans and haul them for hours before stopping to set camp, cut wood, haul boughs, chip a water hole, etc. There's a lot of work that goes into winter travel, and we'll be doing it most days!
Snow pack on the big water tends to be easier to travel in versus the soft snow of smaller interior lakes.
