Drink Pure Wilderness
Drink in pure wilderness laced with exciting whitewater and iconic Canadian wildlife on the Seal River, as it shifts from forest to subarctic tundra and into the ‘Land of the Little Sticks’. Count harbour seals that come up to play and feed 260 km inland at Shethanei Lake as your paddling partners.
Let the feeling of untouched wilderness seep into your consciousness as you hike the worn path of the 400,000 strong Qamanirjuaq caribou herd. Trace their migration route along the spine of ancient eskers, long sandy ridges left behind when the glaciers melted. Soak in the sight of 3,000 beluga whales that summer in the estuary where the Seal’s freshwater meets the salty water of Hudson Bay.
Try not to laugh when one of these smooth white whales turns its ‘smiling’ face to get a look at you. Be one of the handfuls of select paddlers that venture onto this Canadian Heritage River each season. And bring your best whitewater skills – you’ll need them!
