This comprehensive guidebook clearly details 25 of the best canoeing, kayaking and hiking routes in Temagami, ON and contains notes on the region’s history, geography, archaeology, flora and fauna, as well as important outfitting, camping and safety tips.
In 1978, Hap Wilson produced his first canoeing guidebook – Temagami Canoe Routes. Ten printings and thirty-three years later, this updated version captures the true essence of “Deep Water Country” in a completely restyled and updated version. To keep pace with the discriminating needs of modern adventurers and ecologically minded travelers, Wilson has included over 40 popular hiking trails and viewpoint treks to Ontario’s highest peaks. Also included are coastal kayaking trips following two of North American’s longest undeveloped freshwater shorelines and, of course, all the classic canoe routes that have made Temagami so popular for the past century. Temagami is renowned for its remnant old-growth pine forests, clearwater lakes, rugged landscape and convenient loop routes. North America’s largest intact aboriginal trail network the nastawgan, adds to the spirit of adventure in Temagami. Wilson makes tripping easy with this all-inclusive planning guidebook.
