Are you craving an adventure but not sure what to do? We suggest going on a canoe trip in Wabakimi Wilderness Park and the Albany and Kopka Waterway Parks. Canoeing is a great way to explore the waterways, get closer to nature and get fit at the same time.
Here are a few reasons why your next adventure should be a canoe trip:
The whole family can get involved
Canoeing is great for kids and adults alike since it’s a very accessible sport. Instead of taking your kids to a water park and feeling overwhelmed in the chaos of the lines, why not take your kids canoeing? Spend quality time with one another and make great memories that will last a lifetime.
Bond with nature
Wildlife is generally less shy around paddlers, so you’ll have the opportunity to get closer and spot animals that motor boats, walkers and cyclists rarely get to see. Not to mention, being in a canoe and floating out onto perfectly still water allows you to really be one with nature and nothing else will matter. You can take the time to reflect on life while searching for waterway wildlife.
Exercise in the fresh air
Canoeing is a low impact activity that improves your aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility, according to Better Health. Even if you’re just gently paddling, being outside and close to nature lowers your stress levels, can help you sleep better and make you a happier person overall.
