    I found your site very useful for a Wabakimi trip I am planning this year. The detail and focus on historic aspects was great. My brother and I in our mid 50’s are just now making our first trip to the area having canoed most other areas of the province. So we are hoping to explore more of the northern reaches before mining etc opens them up.

      Anon – your story sounds like a duplicate of ours!

      My bro and I are now in our early 60’s and, after 30 years of NE Ontario paddling, found our way to Wabakimi in 2010 for the first time. It was quite the revelation! In all we have returned three more times – and will without a doubt be back again soon.

      There are so many tripping possibilities – especially if you can rationalize spending some money on a float plane pick-up or drop off. At our age this is getting easier to do!

      We did go a bit further west this summer – all the way to WCPP and the Bloodvein River system. We think it was the most beautiful river trip we have ever done.

      Have a great time canoeing Wabakimi and send me the url for your trip report after you get back. it will give me some ideas for our next visit!
