Welcome to Canadian Canoe Routes (CCR) website!!

Inside, you'll find hundreds of route descriptions, trip reports, gear information and reviews,  recipes, tips, tricks and techniques and active discussion forums.  In addition there is a  wealth of Route Resource Information.  All of Canada is included & selected areas of the US.

And of course, the heart & soul of CCR is its members - a large community of paddlers from across the country & even quite a few from other countries - in particular, our neighbour to the south, the US!


Add Your Trip Report to our Trip Report Database HERE!!

Sharing your reports of your canoe & kayak trips is one of the best features of CCR - access info, technical information, trip journals, gps tracks, maps, advice, photos etc. can all be included.  If you have your trip in a pdf file, it can be uploaded as is.  Please share your experiences & knowledge with all CCR members

Drowning River

This is one of a number of routes added to our routes database in the Greenstone area (Geraldton, Longlac, Nakina).

“The Drowning River has been renowned for its Speckled Trout fishery for over a century.  Famous Northen Ontario guide, Emile Cote,  loved this river, and for good reason: beautiful campsites and portages, lots of fastwater and rapids make this trip a
wilderness canoeist’s dream.
