Salut Coureurs du Bois! Join the Voyageurs from Bark Lake for an interpretive hike and paddle around the lake and through history to the days of the Fur Trade. After a paddle from the main camp to the Voyageur Outpost, enjoy a campfire with Voyageur songs, stories and legends. After some fellowship, fun and food (delicious bannock) the adventure takes you into the woods for a hike along Bark Lake’s Counn trail. As part of our crew, you will explore Bark Lake and learn more about the lives of the Voyageurs. Suitable for adults, teens and children, 8+ or younger with their own PFD.
