What Sets Us Apart:
THE BEST SERVICE
We take pride in the personal service and attention to detail we offer you. We’re paddlers too, and enjoy chatting and learning about your experiences and expectations about your adventure. We’re always here to answer your phone calls or emails.
From the moment we opened our doors, we wanted to give everyone the absolute best and newest equipment for any adventure. We only rent gear that we personally fell in love with, and the result is gear that goes above and beyond any other outfitter. Every top-of-the-line, fully-customized, Ultra light Kevlar canoe in our fleet is purchased new every year. We know our canoes will perform and excite you from first sight—and first paddle.
We are the only outfitter in the region offering wilderness guide services. Our guides paddle the park regularly and are boreal experts. Our guides will show you the best spots to fish, cook up delicious backcountry cuisine, and share local historical knowledge of the boreal forest. We genuinely love what we do.
OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PARK
Red Lake Outfitters is the only outfitter in the region that works side by side with the Woodland Caribou Provincial Park Office and its staff. Whether it’s working with a portage clearing crew, checking out campsite conditions, or sharing road conditions, this partnership allows for key information updates that ensures you’ll get the best experience possible.
THE BEST VALUE
When comparing outfitters, it’s important to factor in the service they provide, their level of expertise, the gear they rent, and their relationship to the park and the park staff. We provide our clients with an unparalleled outfitting experience at the best prices in the region.
We proudly obey all laws and regulations regarding outfitting in Red Lake, Ontario and its surroundings. We’re the only outfitter in the region that can legally fly canoes over 16 feet long into the park. All of our aircraft and canoe racks have external load paperwork, ensuring we comply with Transport Canada regulations. Responsibility is key to prevent any issues while in the wild.
INTERPRETIVE DAY TRIPS
We’re the only outfitter in the region that offers guided services. Our guides are experts on local history, wildlife, canoeing, hiking, camping, and fishing. Make the most of any trip with the help of our experienced boreal guides.
WE’RE PADDLERS TOO
Wilderness canoeing is our #1 passion! We personally handpicked our fleet of Ultra light Kevlar canoes and our camping equipment. We’ve personally paddled the routes we suggest for you. We’ve done so with a firm understanding of what you’ll expect to experience on your trip and what you’ll need to be prepared for. Our commitment to our guests and founding philosophy guides us to providing you with an unparalleled experience!
