High Adventure 2005

Northern Tier Canoe Base


The Northern Tier offers you adventures in some of the worldžs best wilderness canoeing, a place explored by very few people.  Atikokan is a challenging land of lakes and rivers with a name that in the Cree language means woodland caribou crossing.  Fish for the elusive Northern Pike, paddle out to a beaver dam or explore the woodland areas that surround each of your camps.  Trip dates are June to July.  Visit their web site at http://www.ntier.org/ and also check out Troop 101žs trip photographs at http://www.t101.org/photos_page.htm. Adventure awaits!
