Few rivers can match the power, beauty and history of the Missinaibi. 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.
This trip is a combination of our Upper Missinaibi AND Thunderhouse Falls Fly Out trips. Spend 2 weeks running over 30 sets of rapids and camping beside the roar of cascading falls and rapids on this Canadian Herritage River.
Our guided trip starts with a night at Barlcay Bay Campground on big Missinaibi Lake and over the next 100 miles of river, we drop 300 feet of elevation. We continue on for the first 50 miles of the Lower Missinaibi past the last road at Mattice, and make our way to Thunderhouse Falls. The campsite at Thunderhouse is spectacular, perched 150 feet above the cannon, here time is spent marveling in the natural beauty of Thunderhouse, swimming and fishing. Below the falls, the river drops 300ft in a single day, as the Missinaibi plummets off the Canadian Shield and onto the Hudson Bay Lowlands. Our final night together is spent at Bull Moose Bay, camped beneath the towering clay banks of the Lowlands. Finally, we will then be picked up in the morning by float plane, a classic mode of transportation in the North.
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!
I just want to say that MHO Adventures is a top-notch company in every aspect and I hop that I can send more people your way in the future. Cheers!
