Dog River, Lake Superior - Instructional Expedition

Regular price $1,125

Lake Superior is a sea kayaking paradise in Northern Ontario, Canada. It offers stunning campsites, awe-inspiring cliffs, and waterfalls everywhere. Our trip will start from the Michipicoten River, and take us towards Nimoosh Provincial Park and the Dog River before we journey back. This will be a 6-day trip in a remote backcountry setting.


This adventure is specifically designed for sea kayakers who have completed Level 1 training or have equivalent skills. The purpose of this trip is to provide paddlers with the experience of participating in an expedition on big coastal waters in a controlled and supervised manner.

DESCRIPTION:

During this six-day backcountry adventure, we will travel from Michipicoten River to Nimoosh Provincial Park and Dog River.

The Nimoosh River waterway links Obatanga Provincial Park to the Superior coastline. The bedrock of Nimoosh Provincial Park consists of metavolcanic, metasedimentary, and felsic intrusive rocks of the Wawa Subprovince within the Superior Province of the Canadian Precambrian Shield. The intolerant hardwood-coniferous valley forests are similar to those found on the north shore of Michipicoten Island and along the Pukaskwa River in Pukaskwa National Park.
