North Star Advanced Canoe Trip

New in 2024!

Chewonki’s history on the rivers of Quebec dates from the mid-1970s.  Throughout this time we’ve travelled on many rivers, each unique from the others, yet all Chewonki participants who traveled them share a deep kinship and the stories from those trips are part of our lore. This Northstar Canoe Trip promises to be a memorable and challenging wilderness adventure foradvanced paddlers who are ready to take the next step!

Our Itinerary

You can expect the adventure of a lifetime as we take our most advanced campers on a challenging expedition on the Moise River. The Moise starts just east of Labrador City, right on the border of Labrador and Quebec.  This river will present big whitewater, beautiful canyons, vast scenery, and rugged remoteness. Overall, this will create the perfect type of environment for returning campers who are ready for the next level of physical and leadership challenges. Prior Chewonki trip experience, or experience with a similar level of challenge in another backcountry trip program is required.

The group will travel approximately 270 miles south on the Moise River back towards the town of Sept-Îles, Quebec. Campers can expect long days, big portages, lots of lining, and certainly many, many challenging rapids.
