Canoeing, Canoe Tripping, & Watersports

"The Way of the Canoe is the Way of the Wilderness and of a Freedom almost Forgotten."
— Sigurd Olsen
Safe Travel on Canada's Lakes and Rivers Canoe Sailing in the Canadian Shield
"There is magic in the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance, adventure, solitude, and peace. The way of a canoe is the way of the wilderness, and of a freedom almost forgotten. It is an antidote to insecurity, the open door to waterways of ages past and a way of life with profound and abiding satisfactions. When a man is part of his canoe, he is part of all that canoes have ever known."
— Sigurd Olsen
