4 day trips in Manitoba
The Manigotagan River received its name many years ago when some hunters calling game were answered by an old bull moose with what they thought was a bad throat. Since that time the river has been called Manigotagan, meaning "bad throat". Paddle quiet, picturesque stretches of water that snake through boreal and deciduous forests. The silence is punctuated by the sound of fast water as we approach the spectacular rapids and falls that dot the river.
This trip is ideal for those who want to experience the peace and beauty of a Canadian Shield river but have restricted time. Those with limited canoeing experience can develop their skills with easy portages around all obstructions.
Cost: $650 Canadian plus 5% GST
Dates: June 24 - 27 and July 15 - 18, 2011. We can also customize a trip for your group.
