Canoe and Kayaking

The pristine waters of the north make the Kirkland Lake district a kayak and canoer's paradise.  Local favourites include the Blanche River, Larder River Provincial Park, Englehart River, Howard Lake and Misema Lake and River Complex. Easy paddles are to be had on virtually any lake in the district. For beginners, paddles in Esker Lake Provincial Park are a lot of fun. And if fun is your thing, then come up in May for the High Water Run. This 13 km race runs from Sesekinika to Kenogami Lake on the winding Blanche River. There are a couple of small portages but this is really a recreational class race, suitable for all skill levels.

Canadian Canoe Routes has excellent summaries of trips around the region, while the public forums provide detailed information about access points, portages, rapids and campsites.
