MHO Adventures

All Inclusive Backcountry Canoe Trips & Wilderness Guide Training


Our Lower Missinaibi River Expedition is the perfect package for those looking for a Northern wilderness adventure, without the rigours of portaging. We begin our trip with a flight over Thunderhouse Falls, and land on the Missinaibi River, 64km north of the last road, and below the last portage. From here it is a downstream paddle where we will explore gypsum caves, search for fossils, wander around shorelines, paddle through fun swifts, and camp on gravel bars.
Half way through the trip we often camp at the mouth of the Abitibi and Moose at Wayne’s place. Wayne is a local to the town of Moosonee and a close friend of MHO. He holds a wealth of knowledge of the area and if he happens to be home when we pass by, we will stop and visit with him. If our paths do not cross, it’s a beautiful place to stay and explore regardless. This adventure combines the unique natural history of the James Bay Lowlands – a significant northern estuary – with the colourful cultural and human history of the indigenous people and early European inhabitants.
