Women's Canoe Trip
Dates: July 19-21, 2024
Cost: $475 (food included)
This is an introductory trip to learn canoeing and portaging skills with other women. We will paddle into Barker Lake on the Churchill River system and stay 2 nights. This is a beginner trip to learn river skills and have a chance to relax with all the meals provided. Challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone and learn new skills with a fun and supportive group in God’s creation.
The Deep Adventure Trips bring faith into the wilderness experience. This will include devotionals, prayer, testimonials and deep conversation around the fire. You do not have to have any faith background to participate or join the Deep Adventure trips. It is good to hear everyone's story and learn from each other.

EMERGENCY EVACUATION AND TRIP CANCELLATION: In rare cases, if you have an emergency and need to be evacuated from the trip, you will be responsible for any extra charges. The quickest way to get off our remote trips is via floatplane or helicopter and if we contact these companies directly for the quickest service, you will be responsible for the expense. To ensure that there are no surprises, we recommend that you get evacuation insurance. An evacuation could be very costly in remote locations, so we recommend that you are covered through your credit card or another plan. One option available is Tugo Insurance at: https://www.tugo.com/en/travel-insurance/canadians/. You may also want to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance if for some reason (i.e. illness) you are unable to go on the trip. If cancellation is required at the last minute, you will need to have trip cancellation insurance. This will protect yourself and Aha! Adventures and allow us to offer great trips into the future.
