Taking off for a week long canoe trip through the lakes and waterways of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park is really an opportunity to get back to nature and see it while not disturbing it. When you are finished your canoe adventure, you can get picked up by Chimo Air Service, who operates float planes such as the De Havilland DGC-3 plane. These people here are paddling towards the plane for the end of their vacation.
This park has over 2000 kilometres of canoe routes, so it's not hard to find new routes for you to explore. The benefit of canoeing around this park is that you can travel down waterways that are untouched by man, and are only used to having wildlife tread their shores. While canoeing you can also fish and it's an excellent place to take photographs as well.
Visitors to this park say that it seems to be stuck in ancient times, as it has been protected from logging and development, and so it is almost completely untouched by modern man. While canoeing will not harm the environment, make sure to bring back with you all that you take and don't leave any garbage behind. That way, when you are picked up in the De Havilland DHC-3, you will not be leaving any evidence of your visit behind.
