Canadian Canoe Trips
Canoe & Camping in Canada’s Outback
Travelling north of the border to access some of the most pristine waters Canada has to offer is a great adventure. Smoking Rivers’ guided canoe trips to this part of the world are amazing. Some of the best and most exciting paddling lies ahead for those who want to trek into the great white north.
With a consistent dropping gradient, the river is characterized by virtually continuous mildly technical Class I-II+ whitewater (a few Class III drops in the gorge section) —all the way to the sea. An ideal river for solo paddlers and poling.
Cascapedia Canoe Trip
The Cascapedia River on Canada’s Gaspe Peninsula is an excellent example of a canoe trip on the pristine and clear waters of eastern Canada.
"Our 6 day canoe trip went by way too fast! We were lucky enough to have some beautiful fall weather and the colors were amazing. The guys from Smoking Rivers completely made the trip. It just wouldn't have been the same without them. They worked hard and took great care of us. The food was delicious and they accommodated my vegan diet! We had so much fun and I've made some lifelong friends. I hope to do this trip again next year! Highly recommended!"

"We decided to have a family canoeing adventure for our girls' 12th birthday. I can now declare that I wish most of the decisions we made in life were as brilliant! It's hard to nominate the star of this trip: The stunning river, the amazing woods and wildlife, the thrill of crossing a patch of whitewater, the blessed distance from the rest of the world- these are all good candidates, but the gold medal has to go to Jason and Dan, our guides. We never canoed before, let alone on a lively river, in what felt like the edge of the world, and we felt completely safe the whole time. These guys 'walk' the river on their canoes like we walk a city sidewalk, with ease and confidence and strength..."

"Just had a great camping & canoeing trip down the St. Croix- Maine at its finest! Beautiful scenes of the river, sky, and the woods with cool wildlife thrown in! Plenty of whitewater excitement too! None of our canoes ever flipped, while many others' did! That speaks loudly of the skills of our two guides, Jason & Dan, who provided us with great training as to any different paddle strokes and lessons on reading the river for the 'V's.' However more importantly they were always near to help when we happened to forget some of that training- they both are the consummate professionals - Our whole group loved the experience and wow can those boys cook !!!"
