The canoe is synonymous with Canada. Opening up our country, the First Nations people designed this sleek watercraft for transportation and, today, it has become an enjoyable way for wanderers of all ages to unwind, reconnect on the water, and explore the boundless wilderness in Ontario’s Highlands. There is so much to learn about our paddle culture – both past and present – and Creative Cruisers looking to immerse themselves in the history and story of the canoe can now do so with an easy, customizable itinerary called the Canadian Canoe Route. Learn about the trip – which you can customize from either Toronto or Ottawa – in this story.
