So, why head into the great white north?
Where to start? As avid wilderness tripping brothers since 1977, the main attraction for these types of trips has been the sense of adventure and realization that wilderness areas are shrinking at an alarming rate in our lifetime alone.
It is shocking to see how many of the remote rivers we paddled in our earlier years, today are easily accessible by road. We continue to try and find rivers that are untouched, some with little to no evidence of humans. It’s a search that takes us far up into the north.
Once on the river, we abandon our watches and try to get in tune with nature. The likelihood of seeing anyone else on a trip like ours is slim to none. This was the case on our most recent trip on the MacFarlane River.
