The Churchill River, Canada’s ninth longest river, passes through three provinces, beginning in Alberta passing through Saskatchewan and, after 1,000 miles, ending at Hudson Bay. The Saskatchewan portion of this mighty waterway is an ideal place to renew and restore your spirit as you paddle in the path of the French-Canadian voyageurs who ventured here to trade for beaver pelts. You’ll feel the allure of the north and a permeating sense of serenity as your journey takes you from tranquil lakes to roaring rapids, including the stunning Nistowiak Falls, which plunge almost 80 feet in Lac La Ronge Provincial Park.
