Nothing can beat the freedom and enjoyment of being on your own in the wilderness, planning your own day, enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of nature. On your canoe trip you can travel and explore, hike and climb, catch up on some reading, take photos of the wildlife and scenery around you, take a refreshing swim, catch your own fish dinner or just relax around a crackling campfire and share stories with good friends.
