All Inclusive Backcountry Canoe Trips & Wilderness Guide Training


The Bloodvein River finds its headwaters in Red Lake, Western Ontario and flows west 340km over the Precambrian Shield along beautiful gorges, small lakes, and calm marshes into Lake Winnipeg. Flowing from Ontario into Manitoba, through Woodland Caribou Provincial Park and Atikaki Provincial Park, MB, the Bloodvein has the unique distinction of being one of Canada’s only Heritage Rivers located in 2 provinces.
We start our trip with a restful night at a Bed and Breakfast in the small town of Bissett, MB before boarding a float plane to fly into Artery Lake. From here we spend the next 12 days paddling 225km of amazing class 1-3 rapids. The Bloodvein River is a great whitewater canoe trip not just because of the opportunity to paddle and play in rapids, but also because of the history and landscape. We will view ancient pictographs, portage around waterfalls and paddle through gorges created by some of the oldest rocks in the world. We will enjoy camping in the forest but also out on rock ledges with pristine views in all directions. In camp you’ll have time for fishing, relaxing, enjoying gourmet food by the fire, and pondering about how remote you are in Boreal Forest.
