The Nistoyãhk Odyssey – Saskatchewan

On most canoe trips, you paddle past the same scenery day after day. On this 8-day and 80 K journey, though, you’ll follow the voyageurs down Saskatchewan’s Churchill River and then loop back by a different route, hitting a variety of waters, from small island-filled Hunt Lake to Lac La Ronge, one of the largest in the province. The area also boasts some of the most accessible native rock paintings.

TAKE THIS TRIP IF: you’re a novice paddler with a taste for Canadian history.
