1000 Islands Kayaking
Part of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, the 1000 Islands rest in the shadow of mountains carved by multiple glaciers over millions of years. A diverse biological landscape, the 1864 islands are frequented by a variety of animals as they migrate between Canada and the United States. Lush forests, marshlands, and waterfront architecture help create a setting picturesque enough to prompt involuntary yodelling.
Within this ecologically bountiful area, 1000 Islands Kayaking's certified instructors lead courses that teach fundamental and advanced techniques. Their programs can focus on topics such as exercise or can be geared toward kids and fostering leadership skills. Alternatively, staff members rent out kayaks for self-guided journeys lasting up to a week, equipping adventurers with maps that show detailed routes and the homes of celebrity fish.

Their trips remain engaging no matter the size, luring in everyone from curious couples to business groups, wedding parties, and social clubs.
