We are looking to do another route up in the Churchill area. Looking for about 200 km of paddling.
Any suggestions would be great.
We've done Pinehouse to Missinipe and Stanley Mission to Sandy Bay. Looking to explore more up there.

Cheers,
Adam

Fly in or drive in?
On the Churchill or one the many rivers that flow into it?
If you don't have Laural Archers, Northern Rivers of Saskatchewan book you might check it out it has lots of info about routes in this area.
Also the book Canoeing the Churchill by Robinson and Marchiland is pretty much the Bible of canoeing on the Churchill.
Ric Driediger at Churchill river Outfitters sells maps by Go Trekker of many of the routes you will find in these books.
I have also ordered most of my maps from Eb's in Saskatoon.

Drive in.
I'll look for those books. I've been in contact with Ric. He gave some suggestions. Thought I'd reach out to the community for some recommendations.

Hey,
Yes I have, but unfortunately those links no longer work. We've used them in the past and it was so helpful. Wish they weren't removed. :(

So, as Adam Alberta says, the links to the Saskatchewan Documented Canoe Routes are not working.

Is there another way to access them?

If they are no longer available, is CCR interested in hosting the PDF files of these routes?

Ralph, Do you have a PDF of these files you could share with me?

Cheers,
Adam

Hi,
Yes I do and I would be happy to share.
Do you want them all or just a few? I'm not particularly tech savvy so, if you want them all, I'm not sure about the best way to do that.

Hey Ralph,

That would be so helpful to get them all.
I sent you a PM (private message) with my email. So check you inbox on here and let me know if you have any trouble sending them over.

With thanks,
Adam
