Canoe/Backpack Trip Planning


10 per session Virtual OK

I'd love to you out with advice, tips, and resources for planning your back-country trip (canoe or hiking). I can help you out with things like:

- How long should the trip be? How far should we plan to travel each day?
- What do I need to bring? Where do I get gear?
- What do we eat on trip? How do we safely store our food?
- What important safety considerations do we need to include in our planning?

If you're in South-Western Ontario, I can offer more specific advice on things like:
- Route recommendations for hiking and canoeing
- Where do I rent a canoe for my trip? How do I get it to my put-in?
- Time-of-year considerations for different types of trips

I love to talk trips, so hit me up!

Training & Qualifications

I honestly believe that time in nature provides countless opportunities for personal growth, relaxation, and challenge. I've been heading out to the back-country in canoes and on my own two feet since I was a kid. I've led trips of total newbies from their first overnight to their first two week adventure. I love helping people plan their trips and am always looking to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.

Availability & Preferences

Weekday evenings and weekends

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Katie McCann

I recently finished up my MSc in Biology, which means I know way more about tiny fish and wastewater treatment than I ever expected to. I love backcountry camping, video games, and dungeons & dragons.... I'm always looking to learn something new or make a new more
