Quetico Provincial Park, located near Atikokan, Ontario, features over 3,000 miles of waterways lined with giant red and white pines. Paddle and portage through the many interconnecting lakes and rivers in this land of cliffs, waterfalls and forests.
The lakes and rivers provide the only mode of transportation within the park. Motorized boats are not allowed giving the canoeist a truly peaceful visit. As you paddle this exceptionally beautiful park, re-live the past by viewing pictographs painted on sheer cliff faces. Early aboriginal people are thought to have arrived about 9,000 years ago. Quetico's water routes determined the lifestyle of the aboriginal people as well as early traders and trappers. Today, you can still travel these routes on foot and canoe to experience what is was like before the advent of modern civilization. - WCA
