We did the guided tour and it was amazing— some basic paddling tips then off we went across the lake and along the winding river. Good teaching to make us feel we could do it ourselves next time.

It was awesome- a guided tour from lake Alta to green lake with portage, canoeing lessons, nature lessons and a lovely French guide (Paul). Highly recommended
