Paddle the Trent-Severn Waterway

Welcome to our Canoe Culture Blog

At the links below you will find stories, videos, and stunning photos from our paddling journeys on & along the uniquely beautiful Trent-Severn Waterway. Our adventures were guided by local residents Bretton & Briagh (Guides & Founders of The Land Canadian Adventures) with the wonderful company of their adorable kids, some friends, and Justen Soule, a talented filmmaker, photographer and tech writer who also happens to live here! Bretton is a great storyteller & he wrote the blogs. Each blog also includes helpful trip details like difficulty level, distance, shuttle details, etc.
