The Slate Islands are a home to Ontario's greatest concentration of woodland caribou at the southern fringe of their range.
The circular archipelago of more than 20 islands was created when a meteorite struck the earth billions of years ago. The shoreline presents a visual smorgasbord of geological features associated with meteor impacts including shatter-cones –cone-like rock fractures created by the shock waves that reverberated following the million-megaton TNT impact blast.
This trip is designed for novice to intermediate paddlers, and begins at Rock Island Lodge with basic group skills and trip orientation. After lunch, we shuttle to Terrace Bay to catch a boat charter to the Slates and five days of paddling and exploration.
Full guiding and outfitting, all paddling equipment, all meals from Monday to Friday and boat shuttles between Terrace Bay to the Slate Islands. Don’t worry about cooking or clean-up, all food preparation is taken care of by our wilderness chefs!
