INTO THE WILD by Liz Schaffer
In March 2016, Canoe North Adventures was sponsored by the Canadian Tourism Commission, Destination Canada to attend their Travel Trade event, Canada Shared, featured at Canada House in London UK. At this event, we met Lucy Howard-Taylor, a writer for a well-known UK travel publication. Through this introduction, Canoe North Adventures was invited to be part of a new book … Lodestars Anthology Canada. The book was released in October of this year. Destination Canada sponsored this publishing company to spend two months in Canada researching the contents. The Lodestar team travelled to places like Fogo Island; a boat tour around the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland; a culinary tour of Vancouver; an immersion in Niagara wine country; kayaking at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort; VIA Rail’s The Canadian; a visit to Anne of Green Gables; lobster fishing in the Bay of Fundy; and city tour of Toronto to name a few. As well, Liz Schaffer, a photojournalist and the owner of the publication, paddled with us on the Keele River. Her experience was profound and life-altering. Her introduction to the book confidently states that if you truly wish to understand what it means to be Canadian, you must paddle the Keele River in the Northwest Territories. We are proud to part of this publication … it is a beautiful and insightful representation of what a traveler could find off the beaten track in Canada.
