NWV Canoe and Kayak Club
The Riverland Challenge invites you to enjoy the beauty of the North Saskatchewan River valley by canoeing 10 km from Elk Point to the Fort George – Buckingham House (FG-BH) historic site; run or hike through the historic sites for 3km; then cycle along scenic back country roads for 12km and return to FG-BH for a hearty voyageur meal. Along the route test your skills by participating in voyageur challenges.
This event is not a race; it is a personal challenge. Prizes will be awarded to the oldest team, youngest team (combined age), team traveling the farthest distance and best costumes. Visit albertaslakeland.ca for information on camping and more 'paddling and pedaling' while you are visiting Riverland.
This event will take from two to four hours, depending on your skill level. Canoes and bicycles are not supplied. Participants must have their own PFD and bicycle helmet. Qualified personnel will be on hand to inspect canoes and safety gear prior to launching. Their's is the final say as to whether or not your watercraft is allowed on the water.
