Little Limestone / Footprint Lake, 3-Day Tour (Aug 18-20)
This is a multi-day tour that includes three separate kayaking excursions (approximately 10 hours in total) to explore northern Manitoba on both Little Limestone and Cedar Lakes. Little Limestone Lake is a rare marl lake (the largest such lake in the world) that is known for its turquoise waters, smooth pebbled shores, and its ability to change colour at different periods of the day. Marl lakes change their colour because the rising day time temperatures make the calcite in the water separate, increasing the quantity of marl in the water. This amazing lake, due to its distance from major centres, is a relatively untouched paradise.
Participants of this tour will meet on the afternoon of August 18 to embark on a Little Limestone Lake afternoon or evening paddle, retire to a nearby lodge for some nighttime relaxation, and then return the next morning to set out for a day tour to explore deeper into the lake. On the third day, participants will explore the islands of Cedar Lake or Footprint Lake, a beautiful water body nearby our accommodations north of Grand Rapids, MB. Times and exact locations for each excursion will be weather dependent. We will welcome what nature brings us.
Note: Little Limestone Lake is 5 hours north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Lodging will be at Moak Lodge near Grand Rapids, MB, about 40 minutes way from Little Limestone Lake. Accommodations will offer shared cabin spaces. The cost for accommodations are likely to be around $100 for two nights, Participants provide their own meals and can prepare them in the shared kitchen.
