Journey Through The Land That Gives Life
The land through which the Bloodvein flows is a area of untamed boreal forest more than twice the size of Wales called Pimachiowin Aki (The Land That Gives Life), which Manitoba, Ontario and five First Nations are proposing be a UNESCO world heritage site.
The David Suzuki foundation calls it the largest intact piece of boreal forest on the planet.
This wilderness is a truly stunning environment in which to apply your expedition canoeing and bushcraft skills.
