Paddle to the Arctic


On July 4th, 2016 we started our kayak down Canada’s largest and longest river, the mighty Mackenzie. Named "Deh Cho", or “Big River,” by the Dene people, the free-flowing Mackenzie stretches 1750 kilometers from Great Slave Lake to the Arctic Ocean and is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. A paddle journey down the Mackenzie would be a challenge for any explorer but for a young family with two kids in tow it proved to be an adventure of a lifetime.

Recent studies have found the average child spends 35 hours a week in front of the television or computer monitor. Less than 25% of school-aged children participate in daily physical activity. 

​The Paddle to the Arctic expedition challenged this trend by allowing two youngsters to be fully immersed in a rugged wilderness experience while encouraging them to chronicle their experience through blogs, videos and photographs.
