2 Hour Mersey River Quickie Adventure

2 Hour Mersey River Quickie Adventure

star-5
39
On this tour you'll explore the Mersey River (one of the most beautiful places in the park to paddle, in my opinion). Rendezvous at the Whynot Adventure HQ (Jake's Landing) 15 min before the tour is set to start. We have a large parking lot situated just before you arrive at our location on the river. We recommend bringing a camera as this tour is full of wildlife photography options (I know you're thinking moose and bears, but in Keji we specialize in turtles, giant bullfrogs, muskrat, beavers and white-tailed deer, oh and sometimes a swimming squirrel). On this guided tour you might learn about 'Keji tea' or hear the legend of Jim Charles' Gold, while paddling your canoe or kayak up the river with intermittent stops to take in the magic and learn about some of Keji's secrets. This tour is an 'out n'back' so you'll get to enjoy the gentle current on the way back to Jake's Landing.

Some of the national park’s finest campsites are tucked away amongst these hinterland lakes, where it’s entirely common to not see another paddler for the entire canoe trip. Sandy beaches and warm summertime swimming will relax you while slow sunsets and June fireflies create the backdrop for lifelong memories.

Keji Southern Lakes Canoe Trip - 4 Day

star-5

This canoe trip is best suited for folks who are looking for a longer trip, don’t mind long days with long portages and who are looking for remote campsites, excellent swimming and extraordinary scenery. Similar to our 3-day version, but offering an added day for exploration and relaxing, this extended Keji Southern Lakes canoe trip is an excellent opportunity to see the other, less visited side of the park. Sandy beaches, blue lakes and rocky shores set the backdrop for this adventure. My favourite sites are all on southern lakes- come see why.
