Paddle into the past with family and friends and experience a day in the life of a Voyageur.
Paddle down the mighty Fraser River in a replica 35-foot “canot de maître” used by the North West Company in the 1700s. Immerse yourself in an inspiring and unique part of our Canadian heritage through song and story presented by our Voyageur Guides.
