This trip begins on the CP rail line out of downtown Sudbury. 7 hours later, we will be dropped off at the side of the tracks, in the middle of the wilderness, with no one around, and a blanket of untouched snow stretching before us. We will explore/ travel the Little Missinaibi River over the Height of Land, to its connection with Lake Missinaibi. There we will hook up with the historic Missinaibi River, and travel the first 30kms of its length, around rapids, through swamps and overland, until we reach the CN rail and our ticket back to Sudbury. This trip travels a section of the most important historical link between Lake Superior to the south and James Bay to the north!

What a fantastic way to see the beauty that the North can offer.
I have been privileged enough to trip with LOTN on 5 different occasions, and each time was special in its own way. From the first time I stepped out onto the ice of George Lake in Killarney, surrounded by the La Cloche Mountains, I was hooked, and I came back for more each year.
Although this trip will probably my last with Dave and Kie, I encourage anyone curious about this type of outdoor adventure not to hesitate and look into one of the trips offered by Lure of the North. You won’t be disappointed.
