Thlewiaza, Cochrane and Caribou
Lost in Subarctic Tundra
Challenge your expertise on one of Manitoba’s most pristine and isolated wilderness routes on the Thlewiaza, Cochrane and Caribou rivers. Travel from boreal forest into subarctic tundra in the far northwestern reach of Manitoba, tucked against the Nunavut border.
Be one of a select few to delve into Manitoba’s newest protected areas – Nueltin and Colvin Lake Provincial Parks. Journey through the Land of the Little Sticks where eskers rise up to 50 metres above the lanscape. Follow the timeworn path of the Qamanirjuaq barren-ground caribou herd along these ancient linear sand and gravel ridges created by glaciers.
Paddle past frost-heaved rock and boulder fields in this remote land relegated to canoeists with extensive whitewater skills and wilderness travel experience. Be sure to bring along your passion for fishing.
