This three day Canoe trip runs August 11th to 13th and will embody all that FH&A represents; encouraging people to express themselves creatively in reflection to the natural world. 

You do not need any experience canoeing or camping to enjoy this trip. Expert guides will help you feel confident and allow you to focus on your creative side. 

Twin River will be guiding the trip and supplying all equipment including tents, sleeping bags, and food (they will cook for you too!) 

Joseph Visser of FH&A will be giving one on one instruction on everything he knows about photographing the natural world. He will be ready and willing to answer any question ranging from how to turn on your camera, to photography theory, to capturing the perfect wildlife photo.

All skill levels and shooting styles are welcome. 

Our Route

This tour takes in the Seagrim lake chain, a set of small pristine lakes in Nopiming park. This area of the park is known for it’s population of boreal caribou. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a short trip with easy distances. It makes for a fun and accessible first trip!

What you need to know

This trip departs from Winnipeg The morning of Friday, August 11th and returns mid-day on Sunday the 13th . As with all our trips, we provide almost everything, including transport, boats, food, gear, and an experienced guide. You are only responsible for bringing your clothing as well as your personal items. A detailed packing list will be sent to you once you have booked your trip. Twin River Travel is committed to the values and principles of small-group travel, and as such the maximum group size is 8 people. Single travelers are welcome on all our trips, but be aware that we may ask you to share a tent with another same-gendered traveler.

Our van departs from the Winnipeg Canoe Kayak Centre at 80 Churchill Drive in Winnipeg, between 7:30am and 8am. If you need a pick-up from a different location, let us know and we can easily make arrangements. On the drive out we’ll make a quick stop for breakfast (usually Tim Horton’s), be advised that this is the one meal that you are responsible for paying for, so bring cash if you plan on getting anything. It's a 2.5 hour drive to our launch site, and when we arrive we start your trip with a 1 hour intro to canoe lesson. This is where you will develop the skills that you get to put to use for the rest of your trip. After this, your canoe experience begins!

What to expect

Each day you can expect a delicious breakfast prepared by guide, followed by some time to relax and enjoy the views while drinking your morning coffee or tea. Once we pack up, we’ll get on the water and paddle for about 1 to 1.5 hours before finding a spot for a lunch break, as well as swimming if anyone wants to cool off. After lunch we will continue paddling for another 1.5 to 2 hours and then settle down at our spot for the evening. At our site, your guide will teach everyone about the basics of clean and responsible camping and help with site setup along every step of the way. You can choose any number of ways to enjoy your time at the site, including swimming, hiking, picking blueberries, or just chatting around the fire. Your guide will prepare a delicious camp dinner and campfire cooked desserts!
