Designated one of Canada's heritage rivers, the Bloodvein
starts in Red Lake, Ontario in Woodland Caribou Provincial park and flows through Atikaki Provincial park to lake Winnipeg. Accessible only by floatplane or canoe, it offers 306 km of unspoiled waterways with a variety of paddling from white water rapids to quiet marshes and small lakes. Ancient pictographs on Artery lake, dated 900-1200 A.D. are nationally known for their size and integrity. This river offers varied waterways, good portages and camping sites, unspoiled wilderness, and a vast amount of history.
The Gammon river flows from Ontario to Aikens Lake. It is a quiet river, good for beginners with beautiful scenery, good fishing, ample campsites and abundant wildlife.
The Pigeon river offers 40 miles of exciting rapids and fast moving water. It is a short but wild ride for those with a bit more canoeing experience.
