Initially we went in as a couple. We flew in with wilderness north and our pilot Travis was excellent. It was my first flight in a beaver float plane. We were met at White Water Lodge by Alma and Boyce who let us have the choice of cabins. I choose the extremely cute caribou log cabin. We stayed two nights in our cosy home then my husband got called back to work and I was on my own. Over the next few days I relearned how to kayak. Which I hadn’t done since sea kayaking in Abel Tasman park in New Zealand, over 27 years ago. I even went along the bottom section of white water rapid 4x. We went on a day outing to strikers point lodge which included seeing Ogoki Lodge, a working beaver lodge and Wendell Beckworths cabin on Best island. Wendell was a hermit who built 3 cabins from the fallen trees in the forest. My favourite was his winter abode called the snail house. It is an earth home and has a turf roof. These structures are designed to biodegrade back to the soil so visit sooner than later. I caught 2 walleye. And saw 2 caribou 3x...and 2 bears. One enormous bear came along the beach past the front of my cabin and Boyce scared it away in his pajamas! I foraged for my firewood all week which became more nerve wracking after seeing the bears! One of my highlights was the mama and baby moose that walked through the trees to the front of my cabin while I was walking to the outhouse. Magical.

My family recently canoed through the backcountry of Wabakimi for 8 days. It was really an excellent experience with beautiful landscapes and almost pure wilderness. There is clearly very little human traffic through the park (relative to its size); we estimate that 6 of the locations we set up camp hadn't seen visitors in over a year. The portage routes are often quite tough so bring an saw/machete. Really a special experience with our three kids (from 6-14 years of age).

Flew into Lake Wabakimi and stayed at a cabin for a few days with my father. Incredible fishing! The highlight was when I caught a walleye and was reeling it in, but then a large northern pike bit onto the walleye... With the help of a net I actually got both into the boat.
