As one of Canada’s great waterways, the Missinaibi flows North uninterrupted for 350 miles to James Bay. We begin our adventure at a secluded bush road access point we’ve nicknamed Brunswick Bridge a couple of days upstream of the town of Mattice, the halfway point on the river. Together we will explore the first 50 miles of the Lower Missinaibi, playing and practising our whitewater skills in Class I to Class III rapids as we make our way to Thunderhouse Falls. The spectacular campsite at Thunderhouse is perched 150 feet above the canyon, here time is spent marveling in the natural beauty of Thunderhouse, swimming, and fishing. Below the falls, the river drops 300 feet in a single day, as the Missinaibi plummets off the Canadian Shield and on to the Hudson’s Bay Lowlands. Our final night together is spent at Bull Moose Bay, camped beneath the towering clay banks of the Lowlands.
Although the pace is relaxed enough to allow for whitewater instruction and plenty of relaxation time, this trip does require an intermediate level of general fitness with a few longer days on the water. Truly, one of the best ways to experience one of the world’s great heritage rivers!

Quality of equipment...
The highlight of the trip was the make-up of the group. I felt very lucky to have had a group that got along very well. I also was very impressed with the organization, equipment, and preparedness of the company. In terms of equipment, I came on the trip wondering if your canoes and tents would be very good. They were; I would advertise that if I were you.
