Travelling by canoe down the mighty French River is a surreal experience. Located just 3 hours from Toronto and 6 hours from Ottawa, The French provides its visitors with a unique and easily accessible glimpse into the history of Canada, both anthropologically and geologically speaking. Despite its close proximity to several urban centers, sections of the river are relatively unchanged from the day the Algonquian peoples watched with curiosity as the first Europeans paddled downriver more than 400 years ago. Looking further back in time, it is not too difficult to picture this area of the Canadian Shield as young, towering mountains, now eroded by millennia of glaciation and extreme weather.
