Canoe Tours

canoetour

Join the Northwest Voyageur Company for a trip into Canada’s storied past. A qualified Voyageur will be your guide in our 30’ replica Voyageur Canoe where you will calmly glide across the waters of McGillvray Lake and hear the tales of how the NWC & Hudson Bay Company erected this country. During the trip you may see some of our local residents such as eagles, osprey, loons, beavers, deer, moose, bears, and other wildlife.

Through this completely non-strenuous trip guests will receive great insight into how this nation was explored, discovered and eventually established. Guests will also have the opportunity to view artifacts from the Fur Trade Era such as an original map made by David Thompson, Beaver Pelts, Traps, and other antiquities from this era.

Finish your guided Voyageur Canoe trip off with a traditional 4 course Fur Trader’s Feast prepared for you at the McGillivray Lake Outpost.

We are pleased to offer a rustic 3 course Lunch or 4 course Dinner on the shores of historic McGillivray Lake. While on the journey to the Rockies the Voyageurs mostly ate pemmican 3 times a day, but when they were at their main posts voyageurs would enjoy only the finest delicacies.  Come and relive the majesty of the fur trade through a unique culinary experience.
