So I'm planning an 8 day trip in the end of this August with a few friends. Now the problem is I have no idea where. We are mostly intermediate canoists with no whitewater experience. My hope is for a trip within a 4 hour's drive of Winnipeg, Ontario or Manitoba, mixture of lake and river travel, minimal rapids, relaxed pace, and as remote as possible (we prefer to be alone). Portages are no problem. I was thinking ELA but cannot find any trip reports or routes any longer than a few days. Suggestions?

Thanks,
Cam

Sounds like where I'm going at the end of August; if you speed a little. Quetico.

Here's a map to help you plan your own trip.

Wallace Lake to Aikens and back. Yoiu could stretch that one out to about 5-6 days. The loop through Obukowin would add some days and be a bit more of a challenge. Actually, a real challenge...lol.

There is the Bird system up into Snowshoe / Bee/ Wingiskus and back also. That is a nice trip.

Excellent, thanks a lot for the info. I may try and drive a bit faster or get an early start, as the Quetico section of Path of the Paddle grabs me.
