Totem Point offers paddlers the opportunity to experience the French River by either canoe or kayak. The French River is a scenic and adventurous wilderness waterway system comprised of channels and tributaries for all skill levels.

If you’re a novice canoeist, you can spend a leisurely day on the calm, smoother and more sheltered stretches while navigating among the many grassy islands and bays. Your journey includes the opportunity to view and listen for a variety of animals such as turtles, otters, beavers and waterfowl. Depending on the day and the season you may even see the occasional deer or moose.

More experienced paddlers can paddle from Wolseley Bay to the Five Finger Rapid area and check out the Little Pine and Crooked Rapids. Regardless of your skill Totem Point Lodge is the perfect starting point for your canoeing or kayaking vacation!
