Our Wabakimi Wilderness Centre is on the edge of Wabakimi Wilderness Park, on Mattice Lake, near Armstrong, Ontario.

Wabakimi Provincial Park is a world-class canoeing and recreational area in the heart of Northwestern Ontario. Wabakimi is a remote, rocky habitat for woodland caribou, black bear, wolf and moose. Pure stands of jack pine and black spruce grow from the thin soil, and birch trees grow in sandpits by the water. The extensive dunes have been stabilized by vegetation. Lichens, bogs, and muskegs dot the low-lying terrain.

Wabakimi Wilderness Park was recently established (we had a major role in its creation), and is one of the largest wilderness areas in the world, and at 2,500,000 acres is the biggest wilderness canoeing area anywhere (bigger than Quetico and the BWCA combined, and far wilder). It has many hundreds of interconnected lakes and rivers, and is free of roads, logging, mining or any other civilization. Very remote, it is accessible only by Train, Floatplane, or by paddling in.

Originally established in 1983, Wabakimi was expanded almost sixfold in 1997, bringing the park to its current size of 892,061 hectares (8,920 square kilometres or 3,444 square miles). It is now the second largest park in the Ontario Parks system.

Three waterway provincial parks adjoin Wabakimi Provincial Park: The Brightsand River on Wabakimi's southwest corner, the Kopka River on the southeast corner and the Albany River at the extreme northern end of the park. All three offer excellent canoeing opportunities and can be combined in a Wabakimi WildWaters Wilderness Canoe trip experience.

We are accessible by car (2.5 hr north of Thunder Bay and 5.5 hr. north of Duluth). We are also accessible by the VIA Rail train from east or west. Our clients get special low rates on Canadian Air or Northwest Airlines into Thunder Bay. Private pilots can fly into the Armstrong paved strip.

WildWaters offers Canoe trips and ecotours into the Wabakimi Wilderness Park, both unguided or guided, with full or partial outfitting. Each and every trip is carefully custom planned, whether it is for 3 days or 3 weeks. We can supply as much or as little gear as you may need. Many of our best routes can begin or end at our remote outposts, where you may choose to stay a night or two.

Complete Outfitting - Let us make it easy for you! We will provide canoe, paddles and lifejackets, a route to suit your preference, tents, packs, group cooking gear and delicious, nutritious food. Everything will packed and waiting for you upon your arrival.

Some families, naturalists or wilderness buffs want to experience unspoiled wilderness boreal landscapes, but would like the comfort of handcrafted log cabin retreats for sleeping and cooking. An example of such a comfortable wilderness experience is at Shawanabis Lake.

Shawanabis Lake - This lake is cold, clear and productive. Six miles long, its 40 islands, countless bays, reefs, and points provide excellent walleye structure. Several small rivers run into the lake. At the southern tip, Boulder Creek is deep and winding, with good breeding spots for trophy pike over 20 pounds. Shawanabis Creek enters the lake in a short steep rapid where a highly oxygenated pool draws whitefish and walleye at dusk, dawn and overcast days. Several excellent walleye lakes are just a short portage away. There are several holes over 130 feet deep, home to gorgeous lake trout. These 'lakers' are lean and solid, with almost no fat. Shawanabis Lake is remote and absolutely pollution free. There are no healthier or more delicious eating fish left anywhere on the planet!

Onamakawash Lake - Just north of Shawanabis Lake, Onamakawash is very similar: deep and rocky, with some sand beaches. The lake trout are more elusive in Onamakawash, but there is nothing elusive about the walleyes! The spectacular Lookout River flows in and out of Onamakawash, for a constant replenishment of cold, pure water, and walleye breeding stock. Close to our camps are beautiful, rapids and falls for wonderful walleye and northern fishing. Like Shawanabis, it has several adjacent walleye lakes a short portage away. There are several short canoe trip loops, for those who wish to borrow a canoe from us and "rough it" for a couple of days, and reach lakes as remote and beautiful as any remaining on earth.

Speckled Trout - We offer guided and unguided fly-in canoe trips for speckled trout. 2-4 pound fish are common, with a few in the 5-8 pound class. These trips entail canoeing remote wild rivers, portaging around rapids, and camping in tents. Some e speckled trout canoe expeditions go all the way to Hudson Bay, for tundra and polar bears with your speckled trout!
