Fight Club Whitewater Style
Picture your ideal whitewater experience on a remote wilderness river surrounded by rugged granite cliffs. A raucous and ferocious ride, the Pigeon River commands your respect. Reserved for experienced canoeists and kayakers, it ranks as a whitewater heavyweight in North America.
Indulge your taste for froth in the feisty flow squeezing through intimate, narrow channels. Set your heart racing along an astonishing 40-kilometre stretch that never lets up, punctuated by 30 sets of rapids. No wonder the Pigeon is called ‘Manitoba’s Colorado River.’ Catch your breath and look up to glimpse a black bear or moose along the river’s edge.
Looking to relax? That comes later. For now, combine breathless joy with rapt attention to the Pigeon’s turbulent demands. Savour the pristine setting of Atikaki, Manitoba’s premier provincial wilderness park, once you are back on solid ground.
