Epic Wilderness Adventures

Looking for that 'trip of a lifetime'? Travel by floatplanes, trains, canoes and kayaks to wild and remote Northern lakes and landscapes. Reconnect with the solitude and spirituality of the natural world and sample Ontario’s breathtaking wilderness.  Marvel at polar bears, moose, bald eagles and even more Canadian wildlife.  Be a true pioneer and get yourself out to where the call of the loon, the vastness of Ontario’s boreal forest, the sub-arctic tundra and the majesty of 100-year old white pine trees replace the intrusions of everyday life.


Catch a glimpse of the spectacular aurora borealis - our Northern Lights. View the beauty of the night sky at the Lennox-Addington County Night Sky Viewing Area, the Binbrook Conservation Area outside of Hamilton, Gordon’s Park Dark Sky Preserve on Manitoulin Island or Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Preserve in Muskoka.


The most challenging adventures are often the most rewarding. Embrace the temperature and brave the wilderness on a multi-day winter camping voyage. You’ll be rewarded with stunning, out-of-this-world landscapes, potential wildlife sightings, amazing stargazing opportunities, and the confidence in achieving something you never realized you could do. Let us help you succeed. Leave the planning and prep to the experts and set out on a fully guided and outfitted adventure.
