Urban Canoe Camping for Beginners - South Saskatchewan River - Saskatoon
$ 350 cdnAvailable from 15-Jun-2015 to 31-Aug-2015 2 Day / 1 Night package
Here's a chance to get your feet wet -- with little risk and even less expense! Come jump on board with the canoeing guide who helped compile the South Saskatchewan River EcoCanoe Guidebook. One night out in a tent to discover how much fun it can be and a short 2-day paddle on a stretch of river not far from Saskatoon will introduce you to the intriguing world of canoe-camping. There'll be plenty of how-to instruction with the emphasis on safety and enjoyment. We'll also find time to relax, swim in the sandy backwater shoals and revel in the wilderness attractions of a river on the City's doorstep.
Learning how to canoe and camp in the care of an experienced guide is always a good idea. This short, relaxing trip on the river nearby, but far enough from the City to find solitude, is designed for beginners to feel comfortable and develop confidence in the unfamiliar experience of travelling and camping in self-sufficient backcountry style. The focus will be on safety and enjoyment with lots of hands on instruction. Paddling easily with the steady current, you'll appreciate the valley scenery, relax at sandbar beaches, enjoy tasty campfire meals and experience the best of the river's natural attractions on the fringe of Saskatoon.
The South Saskatchewan River winds its way through an agricultural upland as it flows toward the city of Saskatoon, but down in the valley bottom it presents a wilderness-like aura. Plenty of wildlife, few tourists and lots of solitude. These are elements of a well-kept secret that only a few adventurers experience first-hand. Join this privileged group by discovering the secret for yourself on this short overnight canoeing adventure.
