Bloodvein River, Woodland Caribou Provincial Park

This is going to be 'Part III' of the Northwest Wilderness Challenge by Ontario Parks for myself and some participants on this trip. The route will be roughly east to west, beginning at the Lund Lake access point of the Woodland Caribou Park (WCPP), and then we will take 5 days to paddle to Artery Lake on the west side of the park. At that point we will leave WCPP (and Ontario!) and enter Atikaki Provincial Park (APP) and travel the Bloodvein River for 7 to 9 days (a Canadian Heritage River) all the way west to Lake Winnipeg. The entire trip is about 300 km. Participants on this trip need to be experienced in Wilderness canoeing, be fit, and be willing to participate in all aspects of the organisation and preparation of the trip. You do not need to be an expert white water paddler, but you need to better than a 'beginner'.
A lot of the preliminary planning is complete and we are hoping to get a good committed group early in the year.
