Overview

This trip combines sea kayaking along one of Superior's most remote sections with a day hike to one of Superior's most remote and awe-inspiring waterfalls. Paddle along the Lake Superior coast of the Superior Highlands Conservation Reserve, a large swath of land encompassing unique geological features such as diabase dikes, pillows and kettles, the boreal forest and wildlife.
Cultural features include a small collection of First Nation Ojibwa pictographs. After group paddling instruction at Naturally Superior's base you'll depart westwards through the Superior Highlands Conservation Reserve arriving mid trip at Dog River. There, you will take a day hiking inland to the spectacular Denison Falls, a favourite of well-known Canadian filmmaker, artist and paddler Bill Mason. It's a 40m (100ft) drop of swirling cataracts. Trip features include stellar Canadian Shield formations, crystal clear sweet water paddling and the company of highly qualified guide and delicious meals. There are no designated campsites and the coast is a mix of sand/gravel beaches interspersed by rocky outcrops. This trip is designed for novice through to intermediate paddlers. While no previous sea kayaking experience is required, your enjoyment will be enhanced if you are in good physical condition.
