Paddling Videos

Waterwalker by Bill Mason  -  1984, 86 min

This feature-length documentary follows naturalist Bill Mason on his journey by canoe into the Ontario wilderness. The filmmaker and artist begins on Lake Superior, then explores winding and sometimes tortuous river waters to the meadowlands of the river's source. Along the way, Mason paints scenes that capture his attention and muses about his love of the canoe, his artwork and his own sense of the land. Mason also uses the film as a commentary on the link between God and nature and the vast array of beautiful canvases God created for him to paint. Features breathtaking visuals and exciting whitewater footage, with a musical score by Bruce Cockburn. For more background info on this film, visit the NFB.ca blog.

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.
