The north shore of Lake Superior offers wilderness on a scale that is both grand and human.
We travel deep into the area and explore small islands that feature protected bays and beaches, rocky headlands and a hinterland of tremendous variety. Geographic isolation has resulted in high concentrations of woodland caribou and beaver, providing outstanding opportunities to view and photograph wildlife. We travel mainly on foot, following well-worn caribou trails, or by small powerboat and canoe.
Groups are small (up to 8 participants) and your guide will make room to accommodate your special interests in wildlife photography or wildlife observation. A multi-day canoeing trip in Quetico Provincial Park completes our immersion into this northern boreal wilderness.
Nature Trek Canada’s ongoing field research in this wilderness area makes us particularly qualified to help you observe and understand animal behaviour in their natural environment.
Finally, a long held wish comes true – a slow journey through a wilderness paradise with excellent guides and interpretation to boot! Observing caribou, solitude, variety and flexible programming made this a truly outstanding trip.
