Overview

The granite archipelago of the Lower French River is a perfect kayaking environment. Tracing part of the historic fur trade route, we will start at Hartley Bay and descend the Old Voyageur Channel to Georgian Bay and into the 30,000 Islands. There is very little soil in this area, and most of the vegetation on the coastline consists of wind-twisted and gnarled trees that are far older than they look.
It's a harsh and fragile environment - the least-settled wilderness on the great bay. After meandering through the Fingerboards ť, we'll make the open crossing to the Bustard Islands, a few kilometers off shore. Later we'll cross back to the shoreline and head inland via the main channel of the French River. There will be easy portages around swifts and rapids as we ascend the river. Each night we'll set up camp on a beautiful rocky island, gathering around the open fire to create an amazing dinner. After lunch on the final day, we'll re-cross Hartley Bay to our take-out point. Kayakers of all skill levels can enjoy the Lower French River / Bustard Islands trip. An introductory skills clinic on Day 1, and the sheltered route at the start, will allow the novice to gain confidence before we head out onto Georgian Bay.
