Canoe tips and tricks
Are you an experienced canoeist who has already traveled several trips, or are you going on a canoe trip for the very first time? We have some great canoe tips and tricks for you. We aren't very experienced canoeists ourselves, but we have gained a lot of experience on our 1,200 kilometer trip on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. It was our first long trip, but certainly not our last.
Our canoe trip on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail was our very first canoe trip. We left without any experience with canoeing, but had a lot of experience with travelling on human power. That of course helped enormously because the toughest part of a canoe trip is often not the canoeing itself, but all the elements that come with it. How do you keep yourself warm? How do you make camping fun? How do you eat healthy? We learned the canoeing techniques along the way and after 52 days we learned to cross big lakes with a lot of wind, to read the water, to run rapids, to do long portages and to paddle upstream.
You can find much more inspiration in all our travel stories of our world trip on human power. On our video page and our YouTube channel we have the videos about our trip on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail
