Your rugged wilderness experience at Atikaki can start with a canoe trip on the challenging Bloodvein River or with a short flight from Winnipeg to a remote fishing lodge.
A vast, undisturbed paradise where woodland caribou move like spirits among the jack pines and Aboriginal rock paintings bear witness to ancient life, this 4,000-square-kilometre park is a diverse landscape of granite cliffs, rocky outcroppings, boreal forest, bogs and waterways.
Camping is in the rough, with sites marked only by fire rings and a "leave no trace" philosophy. The back country is not for the faint of heart, or for inexperienced adventurers.
But full-service fly-in lodges provide comfortable accommodations and guided trips that will give you a taste of Aboriginal and voyageur fur-trading life - not to mention a trophy-fishing experience like no other. With daylight lasting until after 10 p.m. in June, your fishing days will seem as endless as the forest.
