CANOEING ON THE CHURCHILL RIVER. TOURISM SASKATCHEWAN/CHRIS HENDRICKSON PHOTOGRAPHY.


SASKATCHEWAN’S CHURCHILL RIVER DELIVERS REMOTE, PRISTINE PADDLING


Graham Ketcheson, Paddle Canada’s Executive Director, gets misty-eyed when he recalls his early paddling adventures on the historic Churchill River. “I last paddled the Churchill River when I was 16 years old as part of a six-week,


1,100-kilometer YMCA boys’ camp trip in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba,” he says. “I remember the Churchill River as a magical place that challenged our whitewater paddling skills and taught us amazing teamwork and resilience. Personally, it contributed to a great appreciation for the rich Canadian resource we all share, the beautiful wilderness of the northern boreal forest.” Little known fact: Saskatchewan is 12 percent water, which translates into fantastic paddling opportunities. Graham is just one of a long line of paddlers and explorers who have been captivated


by the pristine wilderness along this northern waterway. The Churchill River watershed passes through northern Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, a rugged area of rock and forest. Canada’s boreal forest is a wide band that separates the northern tundra from the more southern, temperate woodlands and grasslands. “There’s a lot of history on the Churchill,” explains Randy Nelson, manager of Twin


Falls Lodge, an old-style northern Saskatchewan fishing lodge that has opened its services to canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts. “This river was the Trans-Canada Highway before Canada became Canada. When the fur trade came out west, the Churchill River was the route followed by the fur traders. The beaver pelt was a form of currency longer than cash. Now, it has become a world famous canoe route, renowned for its breathtaking scenery and challenging waters.” Twin Falls Lodge is buried deep in a landscape peppered by lakes and far away from traditional modes of transportation like roads. Boat is the major way in. A five-hour drive
