The Frontier Bushcraft
French River Expedition combines a superb journey on a Canadian Heritage
River with comprehensive instruction in skills for travelling, camping and
staying safe in this environment.
The trip starts with a orientation and training phase spanning a couple of
days. We then set out on an 8-day journey which includes spending two days
with The Dokis First Nation, learning more about the land and their
traditional view of it.
The French River is one of the most important waterways in the history of
Canada. A travel route of the Ojibwa serving as a conduit for explorers and
missionaries, the French River later became a key link in the fur trade.
The area provides great opportunities for employing canoe and bushcraft
skills. Indeed, in this environment, they fit together perfectly.
The French River expedition is Frontier Bushcraft's foundation-level
Canadian canoeing trip. The trip is led by canoe legend Ray Goodwin and
renowned bushcraft instructor Paul Kirtley.
As well as giving you all the skills you need to make your own journeys
here, the trip provides a firm basis for our more demanding and remote canoe
expeditions such as on the Bloodvein River.
On the Frontier Bushcraft French River Expedition you can expand, hone and
integrate your bushcraft and expedition canoeing skills with solid
experience and expert guidance.
