Commune with nature as you paddle through the crystalline waters of Lake Huron that surround Ontario’s Manitoulin Island, known as “Spirit Island” to the Anishinaabe people. Following the routes of their ancestors, Indigenous guides take guests around the world’s largest fresh water island for sunset or sunrise trips, full moon excursions, and meditative evening “reflection” tours. Expect transforming stories and history lessons as you retrace this region’s historic routes by canoe, traveling as the Anishinaabe have for centuries. When not on board, explore the verdant and bucolic isle, a slow-paced destination with just one stoplight and an unhurried ambiance.
