The legendary Missinaibi River runs north from Lake Superior to the arctic waters of James Bay. Like many northern rivers, the Missinaibi appeals to seasoned paddlers for the white-knuckle exhilaration of navigating miles of challenging rapids. Other routes along the Michipicoten-Missinabi river corridor offer quieter options for paddlers at any level of experience and ability.

Trips include:

  • Shumka to Missanabie
  • Lake Missinaibi Circle
  • Little Missinaibi River
  • Michipicoten River
  • Superior Coast
  • Missinaibi River
  • Moose River
  • Lake Missinaibi to Peterbell
  • Peterbell to Mattice
  • Greenhill Rapids
  • Mattice to Moosonee

Each trip is a breathtaking expedition through unforgettable wilderness settings.

Editorial Reviews

Compiled by Hap Wilson, an outdoor writer who has more than thirty years of experience as a wilderness guide... personally documented maps... far more information than a volume size might lead the reader to expect.

— Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal

Engaging and idiosyncratic... the clear pen-and-ink maps are full of details... some photographers dream of wild places and seek the way. I would recommend these books to them.

— Canadian Camera

Detailed information... Hap Wilson has personally explored the rivers.

— Wildlife Activist

Sound advice on important topics... Anyone planning a canoe trip to the areas covered by Wilson will benefit greatly by reading these guidebooks, but even canoeing enthusiasts not planning on travelling to these regions by canoe will enjoy just reading them.

— Cottage Times

Perhaps the best aspect of this fine book is the author's meticulous attention to detail and the accuracy of his research.

— The Sudbury Star

I love his writing because he speaks to my soul... about canoeing and the magnificent outdoors we seldom pay attention to.

— Comunity Voices
