Here is a detailed report of my 10-day Wabakimi experience in early August 2022.

We got on the train at Sudbury Junction and got off 16 hours later at Schultz's Trail. We mapped out the trip on our own and did the trip without the assistance of an outfitter. We arranged Wabakimi Clem to pick us up and shuttle us back to Armstrong to catch our train home. He was very reliable, and an incredibly nice fellow to boot.

It was an amazing experience that I highly recommend.

Very much brought back memories of several trips to Wabakimi and a pic of the rapids we missed the portage on going downriver into Funger Lake..With a kevlar canoe.. We finished up our ten day trip nevertheless.

Fantasia portage used to be beautiful but blowdowns and microbursts and I believe a forest fire have altered that scenery. It used to be a wonderland of moss and of course blueberries..Took us two hours to do that one because we were eating...
Lovely trip report!

Nice trip report and a great demonstration of how a Wabakimi trip can be done without expensive outfitter assistance. And Clem Quenville is a great guy and very reliable. I first met him in 2007 when he picked us up at the end of a trip at a logging road bridge on the Big Rv.
