Saskatchewan's premier heritage river holds the key to mysteries of ancient indigenous cultures. Scattered throughout its 1000 km (600 mi) passage across Saskatchewan's boreal forest zone, the Churchill River features numerous Aboriginal rock painting sites.

During the 6-day trip, you'll encounter intriguing red ochre pictographs displaying graphic figures and symbolic visionary messages that have survived the ravages of time for centuries on the rough Precambrian granite of the Canadian Shield. Get acquainted with the mysteries of the paintings' origins and interpretation. Added attractions along the route include the First Nations Community of Stanley Mission with Western Canada's oldest 1850's-era church and Nistowiak Falls, Saskatchewan's largest waterfall.

Bannock is a traditional food with deep roots in Aboriginal cuisine and it has become a mainstay of many wilderness campfire cooks. Modern-day voyageurs use bannock to help fuel their expeditions and so will you!
