Paddling – Canoeing, Kayaking, Rafting…any activity on the water involving a paddle and a boat:

There are few activities which define being Canadian more than canoeing.

As a proud Canadian I have spent endless hours in a canoe on everything from a 30 minute paddle in the mist to canoe trips lasting several months.

In many ways paddling – whether in a canoe, a kayak, a sea kayak or a raft – has defined who I am for over 30 years. In this section there are stories on paddling in dozens of places around the world, from Cyprus to Tasmania and northern Canada to northern Norway. Stories about rafting in Costa Rica and canoeing with the caiman in the Pantanal. There are stories on soft paddling adventures and extreme expeditions. Throughout them all is a true love of paddling in all its forms.
