"Paddling Canada's Less Traveled Waterways for Over 50 Years"

Quick Canoe Trip Packing Guide.

Canoe trip packing

Whatever sort of canoe trip you’re into –  a challenging white water experience or a more laid back & scenic tour, your time spent can be made much easier or much harder depending on the type & amount of gear you bring along for the ride.

Canoe trip beginners will be tempted to bring along everything but the kitchen sink.Where as some more seasoned travellers run the risk of getting too comfortable – bringing along too little.  The key is to find that happy medium, where you have all you NEED and less of what you WANT to bring.

To help you sort out the needs and the wants, we’ve put together a Quick Canoe Trip Packing Guide. (keeping in mind, some of these items may not be required depending on climate and tour length)
