Expedition Guide Training
After traveling a combined distance of over 20,000 km by canoe in the wilderness, instructors Keiran Rankin and Charles Ruechel have learned a trick or two about operating a successful canoe expedition. It requires an incredible diversity of skills; people management, leadership, canoeing skills, map reading, communication, back-country cooking, leave-no-trace camping practices, and tarp construction – to name a few!

Paddlers who take this course:
- are looking for an industry-recognized certificate in river-canoeing guiding
- may not be interested in certification, but just want to learn the tips and tricks that guides use to run a smooth expedition
- are neither of the above, but would like to join a really fun canoe trip as a ‘client’.
Some canoeing skills are required to register for an Expedition Guide Course – please ask us for details.
