June 11-18 (8 days). A treeline canoe trip primarily on small and narrow lakes but with some river paddling. A few easy rapids. No portages. Eskers and miles of spectacular, white, sandy beaches. Superb campsites. One of our best trips for muskoxen. Also moose, wolves (3 wolf dens), black bear, waterfowl (ducks, geese, loons), bald eagles, boreal and tundra birds. Fabulous fishing for 10 to 30 lb. lake trout and northern pike.

June 24-July 5 (12 days). 170 miles (max.) on the Thelon River and a tributary in the Thelon Wildlife Sanctuary. Most of this canoe trip is located in the Thelon Oasis, the most remote location on the North American continent and far north of the regular treeline. 98% river paddling. Considerable number of easy rapids. No portages. Wide variety of plant communities, wildlife and spectacular scenery. Profuse wildflowers. Our best trip for wolves (10 wolf dens). Also muskoxen, caribou, moose and grizzlies. Large numbers of geese, ducks, swans, loons (4 species), arctic terns, jaegers, ptarmigan, etc. Also peregrines (many active eyries), gyrfalcons, roughlegs and eagles. Fair fishing for lake trout and grayling.

July 18-29 (12 days). A 125 mile long tundra canoe trip on the Thelon River, deep in the heart of North America's last great wilderness and hundreds of miles from the nearest road or community. 80% river paddling. Some small lakes and rapids. One short portage. Spectacular variety of scenery, vegetation and wildlife. The largest sandy eskers in North America. Rich wildlife including muskoxen, caribou, wolves (4 wolf dens), moose, grizzlies and wolverines. Also geese, ducks, loons (4 species), peregrines (active eyries), gyrfalcons, bald eagles, arctic terns, jaegers, ptarmigan, etc. Fair fishing for lake trout and grayling.

August 6-17 (12 days). A tundra river canoe trip on a Thelon River tributary. Scattered lakes and many canoeable shallow rapids. Five or six short portages. Wide variety of tundra scenery with many spectacular treed sandy eskers. Superb campsites fronted by sand beaches. Muskoxen, wolves, moose, black and grizzly bears, geese, loons, eagles and many other tundra birds. Our best trip for caribou. Excellent fishing for grayling. Lake trout in some places.

August 24-September 4 (12 days). A flat-water canoe trip in Thaidene Nene, a large, new, soon-to-be national park. Our route follows a series of lakes joined by short stretches of river through predominantly tundra country close to treeline. Virtually 100% flat-water paddling. One short portage. Very hilly terrain, sandy eskers and spectacular hiking. Superb campsites fronted by sand beaches every day. One of our best trips for muskoxen and our best for Northern Lights. Also caribou, wolves, moose, grizzlies, black bears, loons, bald eagles, and a variety of tundra and boreal birds. Good fishing for lake trout and grayling.
