Package Description:
A whitewater river canoe trip adventure to one of Canada's natural highlights, Thunderhouse Falls. This is where the Missinaibi River crashes through a gorge off the Canadian Shield onto the Hudson Bay Lowlands. Our 6 day river canoe trip allows for a relaxed pace and a chance to hike and explore the canyons and waterfalls of this historic waterway. Whitewater canoe instruction on the first day allows paddlers to negotiate the 25 sets of rapids on the river. The trip ends with a spectacular bush plane flight back over the river.

One of Canada's great waterways, the Missinaibi flows North, uninterrupted for 350 miles to James Bay. We begin our adventure at the town of Mattice, the halfway point on the river. Together we will explore the first 50 miles of the lower Missinaibi, playing and practising our whitewater skills in Class II and Class III rapids as we slowly make our way to Thunderhouse Falls. A rest day is taken at the spectacular campsite perched 150 feet above the canyon, where time is spent marvelling in the natural beauty of Thunderhouse, swimming and fishing. Below the falls, the river drops 300 ft. in a single day, as the Missinaibi plummets off the Canadian Shield and on to the Hudson's Bay Lowlands. Our final night together is spent at Bull Moose Bay, camped beneath the towering clay banks of the Lowlands. It is here that we await the bush plane which will fly some of the group back to Mattice, while the others stock up with fresh supplies for the paddle to James Bay.
