Arrive at Wawaitin Holiday Park for 3:00PM. Meet your host and guide, enjoy welcome refreshments, take in orientation, registration, and wilderness and water safety. After an outdoor meal by the great bonfire, experience your first night sleeping under the stars of the boreal forest, in an authentic prospector canvas tent.
After breakfast, a quick paddle and swim in Kenogamissi Lake will get your day started. Today is all about relaxation and great local eats. The late afternoon will bring some pontoon cruising on Kenogamissi Lake and visiting a trap line cabin to learn how the beaver and a company helped create Canada. End the night with another round-up around a fabulous, warm bonfire.
Your boreal forest experience will continue with lots to see and learn. Your guide can show you how to use a crossbow or how hydroelectric power is harnessed from the Mattagami River. He can even teach you to forage for wild mushrooms. If mother nature decides to water the garden on your plans, take the afternoon to sip on some lovely tea and lounge with a good book. On the evening, practice the 'call of the wild' and learn to howl as wolves or call out a moose with the help of your wilderness guide.
Start your day with a served morning meal before embarking on adventure filled excursions. Your personal wilderness guide will take you to a nearby ancient burial ground of native first peoples, and will continue on to visit High Falls. Experience a leisurely downstream paddle to Dalton Road bridge with lots of great scenery and wildlife along the way. Finally, your guide will bring you back to Wawaitin Holiday Park for another evening of northern delights.
At mid-morning, embark on a pontoon ride to Post 392 for a home-cooked luncheon. During your familiarization walk-about, observe boreal forest wildlife foraging for edibles as you pick mushrooms nearby. When you are ready, choose your return trip to the park, by boat or forest management land route. After a wild dinner, a bonfire by the lake or a couple of hours of twilight fishing is on the adventure menu.
Now that you have begun to rekindle your kinship with mother nature, your personal wilderness guide will add the cherry on top, with a visit to Wawaitin Falls and a paddle in the wake of ancient fur traders on the Mattagami River. A traditional shore lunch will be cooked for you on this three-hundred year old Hudson Bay fur trading route.
A farewell continental breakfast will be prepared and available upon your awakening. This filling breakfast is sure to top off your excellent night’s rest and put an exclamation point on your Glamping High Adventure. If you have time before your trip home, we recommend a visit to the Timmins Museum to learn about our local heritage.
