Churchill River Canoe Outfitters

  • Available from: View on map22 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
  • Duration:8 Days/8 Nights

The Paull River starts about 75 kilometres north from Missinipe. The river follows a southerly course over numerous rapids and a picturesque waterfall and then dumps into the Churchill River. The canoe trip then follows the Churchill River to Missinipe where this trip ends.

The Paull and Churchill Rivers are unique series of lakes joined by rapids or falls. Flowing over the Precambrian Shield, they pass through a forested landscape of rock outcroppings and muskeg. The many lakes are sprinkled with tree-covered islands. 

You may see bald eagles and white pelicans fishing below rapids, moose wading in the shallows, black bears wandering along the shore, and enjoy evening concerts by common loons at sunset. As you trace the path of the Voyageurs east, your guide will tell the stories of these adventurous times. You will learn about the flora and fauna that live in this unique boreal wilderness.

Note: The rapids are generally short and shelflike in nature. Both novice and seasoned canoeists enjoy travel on the river because the more difficult rapids can be easily portaged by those without the skills to run them.
