We have been fishing and hunting here since time immemorial
Indigenous Peoples traditionally have profound respect for the animals we fished, hunted and harvested for sustenance. The practicing of our traditional skills and techniques is an important part of our identity, and we are happy to guide you with our deep local knowledge passed down through generations.
PRISTINE WATERS FULL OF FISH
Take to the water with an expert guide
With over two million lakes, thousands of rivers, and the longest coastline in the world, Canada’s waters are the ultimate fishing destination. Here, you’ll find waters teeming with salmon, trout, walleye, pike, catfish, bass and more. Go ice fishing on silent expanses of frozen lakes, cast your line at the river’s edge or boat alongside jagged coastlines. Let your savvy fishing guides take you to the secret spots where trophy catches lie in wait.
GAME AND WATERFOWL HUNTING
Hunt with the benefit of truly local knowledge
Let the traditional inhabitants of these lands help you track and hunt impressive big game like moose, mountain sheep and long-tusked walrus or small game like bobcats and grouse. Feel the adrenaline rush and excitement as you find the best hunting hot spots with your Indigenous guide, and take your hunting game to the next level with valuable local knowledge.
