Soper Heritage River Canoe Expedition - Katannilik Territorial Park
The Soper River, located in the middle of the Meta Incognita Peninsula and Katannilik Territorial Park, is designated as a Canadian Heritage River. It offers unique adventure opportunities. The river and valley’s spectacular landscapes wind their way for almost 100 kilometres, bringing you on a journey that will spark more than memories. You will raft down the last 60 kilometres of the Soper River in our inflatable canoes. Our experienced guides will accompany you, ensuring the safety of the trip. Throughout the trip, you will paddle down sections of white water, rapids and cascades, and sections of flat water, ending your journey in the picturesque hamlet of Kimmirut.
As headwinds often slow travel down in the afternoon, most paddling will be done in the morning. You can spend your afternoons hiking in the valley, basking in the sun with a book, or trying your luck at fly-fishing. There’s nothing like fresh-caught fish for dinner! The Soper River is at its strongest during the spring thaw, but it can be navigated throughout the summer months due to the numerous small rivers that feed into the valley. Its rapids, normally Class I and II, are easily navigated on board our hybrid canoes/rafts, and the largest rapids can be easily portaged.
