Open Canadian Canoes

Traditional Canadian Style Open Canoes

Originally designed for use by the Native Americans, these boats were then taken on by hunters, trappers and explorers throughout the North American continent. These days’ modern canoes have not changed much from their original size and shape, but instead of being made from Birchbark they are constructed from plastic or composite materials. The beauty of open canoes is their huge carrying capacity, allowing paddlers to go tandem, paddle with the whole family, and if needed, take enough camping equipment to disappear away from it all or embark on multiday adventures.
