The section of coast between Hatties Cove at Pukaskwa National Park and Wawa Ontario is the most remote section of the entire Great Lakes. This unspoiled coastline boasts many remote white-sand beaches, rugged cliffs, and wild creeks and rivers. Lapped by the crystal clear waters of Superior and fringed by Boreal forest this is one of our favourite places to paddle in the world. Once you try paddling Lake Superior you will be enchanted for life by its wild energy.

James and Dympna have the knowledge of this area and skill to lead you on one of their favourite trips. Our new swing on this trip is that we are bringing our friend Chef Mat along. Mat will be serving gourmet meals as we explore this epic heritage coastline. The only thing that makes the wilderness views even better is enjoying it with a decadent hot meal.

We will stay the night before the trip at Pukaskwa National Park campground and then depart after breakfast on July 25th. The first half of our trip will be heading south down the coast of Pukaskwa National Park and the second half will be travelling east along the rugged cliffs and stunning bays towards Wawa.

The north shore of Lake Superior is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe. We acknowledge that we are travelling and camping on their traditional lands. Much of the coastline we paddle remains almost unchanged since colonization. We will have the chance to respectfully view sacred sights and learn more about their culture.

There is a chance we will see Bald Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Black Bear and a multitude of other birds, but these boreal forests are also inhabited by Woodland Caribou and Lynx.
