Did you enjoy the Women’s Noire River trip? Are you looking for your next adventure? This Spanish River trip is the next level for your all women’s canoe trip. Same supportive atmosphere filled with encouragement and learning, with more whitewater and 2-3 portages.
The Spanish River flows 340km from two different sources, Biscotasi Lake forming the West branch, and Duke Lake forming the East branch. The branches join at “The Forks” and flow South into Lake Huron. The Spanish River has a rich natural and cultural history and is protected as a Provincial Park. Today it is mostly used by recreational paddlers.
Our trip begins with a train ride into Spanish River Provincial Park from Sudbury. We disembark the train at the “Forks” stop and begin our journey down river. Our guides will spend time on whitewater instruction to prepare everyone for the upcoming 6 days of fun whitewater paddling covering over 103km.
This adventure is for any ladies out there who want to take on the challenge of a whitewater canoeing expedition with lots of support and coaching from guides, time to relax and get away, and enjoy a beverage by the fire with fellow badass women. Ideal for friends; mothers and daughters (age 13+); trans-women, cis-women and gender non-conforming persons; and any solo travellers out there who are 18 and older.
We acknowledge that the Spanish River flows through the traditional territories of the Anishinabek and Mississauga Nations and is recognized under Robinson-Huron (Treaty 61, 1850) Treaties. We recognize that we are visitors to this land.
