Few rivers can match the power, beauty and history of the Missinaibi, Ontario’s longest unimpeded paddling route. From its source at Missinaibi Lake, the river rushes 350 miles North to James Bay, over Precambrian granite, through string bogs and marshes, and all within a Provincial Park. We begin our adventure with a train ride into the ghost town of Peterbell. This adventure of a lifetime will take us through numerous rapids, around gorgeous waterfalls and into the calm waters of the Moose river.
This adventure combines the excitement and thrill of a Canadian Shield river with the tranquility of the Borel Forest, the unique natural history of the James Bay Lowlands with the colourful cultural and human history of the aboriginal and early European inhabitants.
Truly, one of the best ways to experience one of the world’s great heritage rivers!

Everything was delightful !
I would be terribly remiss if I didn't let you know what a truly wonderful time Bill and I had on our Missinaibi River Trip. Everything was delightful - the beautiful river, the soul-refreshing serenity of the wilderness, our three highly competent, fun and caring guides Meredith, Ian and Bethany (who ultimately made us all feel bonded like family), the fabulous food, the trip the the Cree Village at Moose Factory, Michael and the trip to James Bay and finally the train ride from Hell on the Polar Bear Express. The latter definitely gave us an unexpected adventure that added some final spice to the the mix. I'm telling all my friends about what a great once-in-a-lifetime experience it was. In some ways it feels like I dreamed it now that I am home and dealing with all the day-to-day stuff again, but I have the pictures to prove it was real and the memories to cherish. Thank you so much for blessing our lives in such an unforgettable way.
