Paddling teaches core values, skills and love of nature, and is best shared with your most loved ones.

Is there anything more Canadian than paddling? ‘Ontario’ is an Iroquoian word meaning ‘land of shining waters’. With over 200 lakes, countless rivers and heritage waterways in Ontario, we are connected by and to water and the Canoe is a symbol of that relationship.

Discover the different ways Ontarian have connected to our natural environment, each other and themselves through paddling.

Through the stories of five paddlers across the province of Ontario, Canada – a majestic background both in it’s landscape & history – the film underscores the strength of the human spirit and how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connections.

    Pourriez vous me donner une idée de prix pour deux jours de canoé pour une famille (2 adultes+1 ado de 17 ans et un second de 15 ans).
    Nous arriverions 12:00-13:00 le 19/7.
    Nous voudrions profiter de notre passage pour voir un max de votre faune et votre flore.
