While most Canadians know about the birchbark canoe, fur trade and native Canadian life in the warm weather, few know about our traditions of traveling in winter. Craig MacDonald of Dwight, Ontario has spent much of his life learning and chronicling traditional winter skills from Canada’s first nations. Without Craig, Bob Davis and others who have brought back the traditions, many of us would not know what an Odawban (toboggan) is or how to set up the pickets for the portable wood stove. It is interesting to learn how relevant and useful these tried and true techniques are today. Recently Craig, Bob and a few friends set off for a two-week winter expedition through the north west of Algonquin Park.

Spring, Summer and Fall Adventure for Two's are available May through October.
