Peterborough, ON, Wednesday, August 14, 2019 – The Canadian Canoe Museum’s one-of-a-kind Voyageur Canoe Tour experiences at the Peterborough Lift Lock continue this month. Registration is open for tours on August 23, 25, 31 and September 1. Meanwhile, custom tours for groups can also be booked anytime until Thanksgiving.
The Voyageur Canoe Tour experience is a draw for people of all ages and abilities from near and far, and sees up to 16 participants paddle a 36-foot voyageur canoe up and over the lift lock. This 90-minute guided tour, offered in partnership with Parks Canada, explores the National Historic Site, along with the role of the voyageur in early trade networks.
“The tours are fun – and a feast for the senses. As we paddle together, we salute and we sing, and we experience the incredible sensation of going up and down the lift lock, and the sweeping views along the way,” says Karen Taylor, Director of Programs, adding that more than 400 people will take part in this unique experience this season.
Members of the public can visit canoemuseum.ca/voyageur-canoe-tours/ to register or call Kate Kennington, (705) 748 9153 ext. 220, to find out more.
