Canoeing and kayaking on the Frontenac Arch Biosphere is a fabulous experience! With the rugged Precambrian geology and topography, there are a myriad of lakes, rivers, wetlands and streams. While the region is known for the Thousand Islands, there are in fact more than 3,000 islands on a thousand lakes and rivers. As a satellite view shows, roughly 30% of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere is wet! This is a flatwater paddler’s dream, with days – even weeks – of exploration to enjoy.
