You will find PAWS'N'PADDLES Wilderness Tours located in a beautiful wilderness setting where Northern Saskatchewan's boreal forest meets the Canadian Shield.

This trip will take you into the heart of moose country along a river that’s fun and fairly easy to paddle. The Cree River is very remote, sees little canoe traffic and chances of seeing moose, bear, wolves and eagles are great.

Day 1:
We will meet at the home of Paws’n’Paddles (or pick you up from your hotel) and drive together to Stony Rapids. The adventure begins here as the road is rugged and leads through 400 miles of wilderness. We’ll spend the first night camping under a northern sky.

Day 2:
We will fly to Cree Lake by bush plane and spend the day exploring sandy beaches and refreshing paddling skills. In the afternoon we start our descent of the Cree River.

Day 3-11:
We paddle, float and explore the unique ecosystem along the Cree River. We hike along eskers looking for fox and wolf dens. Our guides will show you how to make a moose call and maybe you will hear the grunt of a moose echoing through the forest in response to your call.  The Cree River flows into Wapata and Black Lake and we finish our trip crossing these two lakes into the community of Black Lake, where we will load our truck.

Day 12:
Drive back to La Ronge and the home of Paws’n’Paddles
