Want to see everything — and I mean everything — that goes into a 17-day backcountry canoe trip? Then tune in here.
Quebec’s Tichégami River is a vast, remote, challenging waterway. The typical canoe route covers almost 200 miles, and nearby civilization does not functionally exist. The Municipality of Baie-James once contained the river until it ceased to exist in 2012. At last count, 1,303 people lived in its approximately 185,000 square miles — an area larger than the states of Michigan and Minnesota combined.
So if you want to know what remote paddling’s really like, watch this crew take on the Tichégami. Episode two of the series Where The Waters Begin comprehensively covers the tasks and decisions involved.
