I'll be going on a canoe trip with about 8-10 people in May (long
weekend: 2 1/2 days of canoing). Some of the canoeist have little
experience (lakes only). We're all in good shape.
We're looking for a lake/river run with some R I. R II would be
too much for some people in the group. We don't need a round trip, but if
end and start were close, it would help. It would also be nice (but not
necessary) if we could rend canoes there (otherwise we can get them localy
and transport them there).
I was thinkin of about 35-40 Km for the whole trip (not much, I
know, but as I said, some people are inexperienced.) I guess they want to
do about 5 hours of canoe per day (I would prefer 10, but I'm not alone).
We don't want to travel TOO much. We're from Hull (Ottawa).
We're considering LaVerendrye park, Papineau Labelle park, Mauricie park
(kind of far but I hear it's nice) and Algonquin park (by looking on my
map it seems like canoe trips in Algonquin are more like hiking trips ie.
long portages). BTW we don't like portages (but a few of 300m is OK). It
doesn't have to be in a park.
We would rather not meet any people, roads, bridges, ... on the
way. We like to be FAR from everything. (And we don't leave garbage
behind -- like too many people do -- so you can reveal your secret place.
We won't trash it.)
I would appreciate hearing about some specific routes.
If you mail, I'll post a sumary.
PS. if you know of any longer trips with R I and R II, I'd appreciate it
for other trips with more experienced people.
