Open boating in Ontario Canada.........

Post by Lil Miss Boater »

Ok so I know that this place is massive and i am having trouble in where to start. I know that I will be going to Toronto to visit family and thought I could get in some open boating of some nature..... be it exped or gentle river running .......providing i can get hold of boats in the first instance!! - minor detail. It will be October time and i was thinking of heading towards Parry sound (a few hours north of tornoto).

Does any one have any experience over that way and any reccommendations about paddling etc over there.......?

Basically any prior knowledge would be greatly recieved or even just a website address to point me in the right direction...... I have only just started looking all this up!!

Meanwhile...... happy boating

The debate rumbles on, and has now gone global - the guy I'm paddling with uses a whisperlite, he has never even heard of a Kelly Kettle. I'm obviously taking mine to enlighten him - I feel like a kind of missionary!!!

I don't go in September - I go a week on Friday!!!

We are doing the French / Pickerel river system. 10 day trip, can't wait!

I got talking to one of the paddlers on MYCCR, and he did all the arranging, all I had to do was sort my flight.

Lil miss boater,

I would recommend Temagami as a wilder option, lot less people about. Algonquin is more accessible though. Maps etc. easily available but let me know if you need more info.

If you ned up in Algonquin then try a 2 or 3 day trip on the Madawaska - fantastic trip!

Have fun,
