These Algonquin Park canoe trips are perfect for people on a tight schedule or a tight budget, but who still want an introduction into wilderness camping. We provide all food, permits, ... morea knowledgeable guide, and all equipment (except personal items like sleeping bags, flashlights – a packing check list is provided). We can even provide transportation from Toronto as an option.
Day 1 – Arrive in Algonquin Park Pickup at Finch Subway Station in Toronto (optional – you can drive yourself to Algonquin Park). We meet at 1pm at the Permit Office at Rock Lake in ... moreAlgonquin Park. Before we start your guide will instruct everyone on the necessary skills and techniques for canoeing. With your “Expedition weight” kevlar canoes we will paddle into one of the interior lakes of Algonquin Park (Pen Lake). While kevlar canoes are much more fragile than other canoes, requiring you to be careful around rocks, you will appreciate their relative lightness on portages and their speed in the water. This differentiates Call Of The Wild from other canoe tripping companies. Our canoes are much more expensive and fragile, but much lighter and faster than the more durable whitewater canoes they use. 

At the end of this three day canoe trip you won’t be an expert but you will know how to pack and steer a canoe. After a three hour paddle (including a 300m portage) you will arrive at your wilderness camp. Since this is a true interior wilderness camp you will have to bring everything with you in the canoes, including the tents.

Once you establish camp, with the help of your experienced guide, you are free to explore the lake we are on. There are several large rapids that were once used as log chutes that are quite interesting. Also, in this area it is quite common to see moose grazing by the edge of the lake – we have seen over a half dozen moose in a two day period here! 

Dinner will consist of fresh food, prepared on site, and enjoyed by the side of a blazing campfire! Afterwards, you can sit and watch the Milky Way rise slowly above your heads. The sky is so clear in Algonquin Park that you can even count satellites passing by. And if you’re really lucky you may even hear wolves howling in the distance. This is real Canadian camping!

Day 2 – Exploring Algonquin by Canoe

Today is a day of exploration. You can spend it exploring the lake you are on, by canoe, looking for moose, or perhaps do another portage and canoe up a meandering river. If you decide to try another lake one option is to do a short portage past an old dam used for logging, and then canoe the slow moving waters of the South Madawaska River. Since you will have to get out of our canoes to pull them over several beaver dams be sure to bring shoes or sandals for the water! Depending on where you establish your base camp, another option would be to canoe half way down the lake and then do a couple of portages, ending with a 1.7 km hike to Welcome Lake. This is one of the prettiest lakes in Algonquin Park, with a nice sandy beach. Perfect for picnic destination on a sunny day.

Day 3 – Canoeing Home

After an early morning breakfast you pack up camp, load the canoes, and start the paddle home. The early start is a great opportunity to see moose or deer (if you are lucky) coming to the lake shore to drink. You will be backtracking your route through two lakes and one portage, but everything looks different in the opposite direction!

Depending on weather and wave conditions you will stop at a cliff face where we will show you some ancient pictographs painted by the Natives centuries ago. 

You will get back to our starting point on Rock Lake at about 11 am. If you chose the optional transportation then you will be dropped off at Finch subway station in Toronto at about 4 pm.

Lofoten, Norway
We are inviting you to a rarely paddled stretch of Lofoten, the wild West coast and populated East coast of Moskenes Island. This is a once a year trip.
The West coast of Moskenes is remote, isolated and rarely paddled. With two experienced guides we are bringing you to this amazing location in summer 2017. Together we will experience ... morethe raw and untouched nature the West coast has on offer, we will explore sea caves and dry caves (if conditions allow it). We will see eagles, seals, fish and a myriad of birds living in an environment rarely visited by mankind.

Experience required:
The West coast of Moskenes Island is remote and isolated, so our participants need to meet certain standards. There are no roads and a very limited phone/radio coverage. The weather will decide if we go for plan A or plan B. Safety comes first and in Lofoten the weather is always the deciding factor.

We require that you have passed a 3 star sea kayak course (teknikkurs from NPF, 3 star BCU or equivalent). Alternatively you must have sufficient experience to paddle in 3 star conditions (1,25 meter waves, 8 m/s wind). Furthermore you must know how to land a sea kayak in surf so some surfing experience will be essential. There may be surf conditions on our landing beaches and surf zones are relatively high risk areas.

We also ask that you are a contributing member of the group. We need all the members of the group to contribute where they can, whether at sea or on land. We will be isolated and it’s therefore important that everyone assist each other whenever possible.

Lastly, the conditions can be rough on the West coast. If we deem the conditions too demanding we will go for our plan B. You must however be prepared and able to paddle and camp under rough conditions; high winds and big waves.

How to get there
There are several ways to arrive at Ballstad. The easiest way is airtravel via Bodø (www.sas.com or www.norwegian.com) and connect with a Viderø flight (www.wideroe.no) to Leknes airport. Leknes have several arrivals with good connections from Bodø airport.

If sea travel is more convenient, Hurtigruten (www.hurtigruten.com/no/norskekysten/) is a good alternative as it arrives at the local village of Stamsund at 19.00 and the south direction departures at 22.30. If you travel by car, the ferry (http://www.torghatten-nord.no/english/) from Bodø to Moskenes (Å) is a good alternative. Several departures a day.

Included:
2 nights of accommodation at Hattvika Lodge.
Two experienced guides
2 BBQ dinners at Hattvika Lodge

Guides:
Kristoffer Vandbakk from Kajakk Nord, 5 star guide and coach (NPF 5 and BCU 4). Kristoffer has 4 years of experience as a sea kayak guide and instructor. He has done multiple trips to the West coast of Moskenes and has incident management and first aid in remote areas skills.

Matt Skuse is a former Mountain Leader in the British Royal Marines with extensive experience in remote and challenging wilderness environments.

Kvalvika to Bunes. The wild West coast of Moskenes all day. Distance to paddle: 17 km. We arrive at Bunes beach and camp here. There is mobile telephone and radio coverage a 20 minutes hike from the beach.

18 July:
Bunes to Lofotodden. We will paddle by several caves. If we can, we will explore a cave on foot (Otervikhula), there are 2-3000 years old paintings in some of the caves on the west coast. We arrive at Lofotodden where we will paddle in the Mosken tidal current. There is mobile and radio coverage at this campsite. Distance to paddle: 22 km.

19 July:
We paddle in or near the Mosken tidal current (depending on the conditions) and pass the most Southern point on the island towards Reine. Reinefjord is one of the most picturesque areas in Lofoten, we will find a suitable campsite there. There is mobile telephone and radio coverage on the whole East coast. Distance to paddle: 22 km.

20 July:
Reinefjord to Ramberg, through the Sund tidal current, where we will be picked up and driven back to Hattvika Lodge for another great BBQ, a hot shower and comfortable bed.

21 July:
Breakfast and departure from Hattvika Lodge by 15:00.

Details of plan B:
If conditions on the West coast are too demanding at the start of the trip, we will go for plan B which begins on the east coast of Moskenes with the aim of circumnavigating the island in the reverse order of plan A.

Environmental considerations:
We like the term “leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs”. We will bring out all garbage with us. Campfires will be made on a bed of rocks to leave no trace. We will bring a small shovel to to dig small holes and cover any human waste.

Insurance:
Travel insurance is always recommended. You are responsible for having the appropriate accident and travel insurance for sea kayaking on a remote coastline for several days. Call your insurance agency if in doubt. We recommend booking a return flight from Lofoten which includes cancellation insurance.

Safety procedures:
When planning a fairly challenging sea kayak trip such as this, we have to plan for the worst and hope for the best. Below we have described known risks and how to avoid and deal with them.

On the west coast there are several landing spots. This includes Kvalvika, Horseid, Bunes, Gjerdvika, Turtnbakkvika, Refsvika and Hell. These are all sand beaches (except Hell which is a sheltered bay) and therefore preferable to organising a rock landing. If we need to land we will, if possible, attempt landing at one of these places.

It is possible to hike on foot to the populated east coast from Kvalvika, Horseid and Bunes. From Bunes it is possible to spend a day carrying all equipment from the beach to the sheltered Reinefjord on the east coast. From Hell it is possible to hike to Å, but this is a very long and steep hike. It is also possible to hike from Stokkvika to the east coast, however the landing in Stokkvika is rocky.

If emergency rescue is required, the group should contact emergency services. This can be done at any of the mobile/radio service points marked on the map. Other than the marked points, there is no mobile or radio contact on the west coast of Moskenes.The whole east coast has mobile and radio contact.

If there is a need to evacuate an injured person or the entire group we will land and walk out or if this is not possible, contact emergency services. Equipment will be secured on land for pickup at a later stage.

Each of the group must be prepared to tow another paddler. Everyone must have a tow rope and everyone must also know how to use it.

If you capsize you should be able to either self rescue or roll. Partner rescues are the second line of defence.

If a paddler capsizes in his or her kayak and exits the kayak, a recovery can be performed by a member of the group. Everyone must be able to perform a buddy rescue so that the person gets back into the kayak.

In the unlikely event of resuscitation being required, the casualty will be moved to land if possible or raft up to provide a suitable platform.

Group control: Line of sight between the group members is to be maintained. If you leave the group on purpose you are no longer considered a part of the arranged guided trip, until you return to the group.

If conditions are too rough the group may be forced to remain in camp until conditions improve.

If an emergency occurs and the group or part of the group has to cancel the guided trip, no refund will be given.

By joining this guided tour you accept the risks described in this document; the risks involved in sea kayaking and the risks of being on an isolated coastline over several days.

This is a great kayak trip to one of the most beautiful parts of Norway. With excellent guidance, you will have a great trip both as an experienced kayaker and as a beginner.
Imagine being among wild seagulls and sea eagles, in the archipelago outside the glacier of Svartisen. You put the paddle in the water and glide. Smiling. Our kayak instructors are ... moreexperienced and will make sure you feel safe and comfy. We will do some excercises ahead of the trip to make your trip as pleasant as possible.

If you are an experienced kayaker you will appreciate the extraordinary and varied landscape. If you are a beginner you will appreciate it too, and probably also the small protected bays, where paddling is easier.
We start in Engavågen.
