We did this trip (couple from UK) in early July. We were part of a group of 8 comprised of couples, family with child and a solo adventurer, Europeans and a Canadian. All people seemed to enjoy and get a lot out of the trip. I recommend the trip very highly. Kelly our guide was great. Very experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive - an all around good guy. We stayed at the Lakeside Cabin at the Canoe Outpost the night before and he was kind enough to come and drive us to a spot where he had spotted a mouse, before the trip had even officially started. He also helped us with first aid after the trip had ended when we had a bleedy accident with the boot (or trunk if you prefer) of the car and a forehead. Communications with the office before the trip was good, with all questions answered. The trip was generally as advertised on the website and was a fantastic experience as hoped. We spent two nights on the shores of Craig Lake and it was absolutely beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. I especially enjoyed the song of the loons (or divers in UK) on our morning paddle. The trip is generally relaxing and not too energetic with one exception - the portages. For the uninitiated this does involve carrying very heavy packs and canoes between lakes. Even over the relatively short distances it is heavy work. That said it's not obligatory if you don't feel fit and strong enough. The Lakeside Cabin at the Canoe Outpost was again as advertised. The early morning on the lake in July was stunningly beautiful. Otherwise basic and rustic but there are pit toilets with doors and even hot showers. The price was very fair - though the evening meal and breakfast at the outfitters was not cheap - almost more than the accommodation. We found it handy and convenient to stay there the night before the trip - things felt less rushed for the departure.

As an escape from pandemic stress, there is no better place than VQ's island cottage. I went looking for a peaceful place to write and found creative magic in looking up and around as nature is your steady companion in these parts. For any and all artists. I am now planning to go back before the next writer's block takes hold.

A three days to remember and to recommend to everybody. We stayed at the Lodge and from there did some cano trips along the lakes and hikes in the woods. The guides were very good and knew so much about the wildlife and nature. The food was excellent too. We have memories for a life time.

A Canada Day to remember! We all had a fantastic time, canoeing, swimming and camping on an island. Our guide was excellent, great with the kids (and the adults). What an adventure, the trip was very well organized and well planned. I would highly recommend
