Explore Woodland Caribou Provincial Park by Canoe
Combine the comfort of an American-plan lodge with the adventure of a canoe trip. Fly by floatplane to our lodge, Viking Island, on Saturday morning and spend the day fishing on Douglas Lake. Enjoy our three home-cooked meals per day and our several portage lakes, while staying in a beautiful lake front cabin, equipped with indoor toilets and showers. Then on Tuesday morning set out in a canoe for a three day adventure, staying one night in a cabin and one night in a tent. This a great opportunity for avid canoeists to enjoy the pristine wilderness of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, while still having an opportunity to enjoy our Canadian hospitality, or an excellent way for beginners to get a taste of the canoeing experience.
The three day circle route begins on Douglas Lake and moves through Hatchet and Caribou Lakes, which both boast excellent Lake Trout fishing, before reaching Embryo Lake, where you will spend the night in Embryo cabin. Leaving the cabin the following morning, you will paddle the length of Embryo Lake before moving through the small, but beautiful, Lac Lammont to Telescope Lake. From Telescope you portage to a series of three lakes, referred to as Hjalmer Lakes, where you will find an absolutely fascinating pictograph, estimated to be approximately 1200 years old. That evening, you can set up camp on Onnie Lake, on a small island with a view of Onnie Lakes’ gorgeous cliffs. On day three you will make the fairly relaxing paddle down Onnie Creek, where you are almost certain to spot a moose wading in the weeds, to Spider Lake, with ample time for fishing. On the afternoon of day three, you will complete the circle route, as Onnie Creek flows into Douglas Lake. To see a map click here Circle Route Map. Once reaching Douglas Lake you will spend two more nights at Viking Island lodge, having all day Friday to spend fishing or exploring. We will return you to Red Lake by floatplane early Saturday morning. What better way to experience both the splendor and solitude of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, while, at the same time, enjoying the comforts of home at our remote lodge nestled within the park, where you will enjoy mouth-watering meals and superb fishing.
