Outdoor Adventures in the Temagami Wilderness

Temagami is a mecca for outdoor adventure travel and ecotourism in Ontario. Smoothwater draws adventure travelers from all over the world to our quiet Temagami wilderness lodge. They come for canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, ski and snowshoe adventures, romantic getaways, quality family time, and club trips. They also come for our local, organic and seasonal food. It’s a real Canadian adventure that you can’t have anywhere else.

You’ll never see all of Temagami with her many outdoor vacation packages. But we can get you off to a good start. And you’ll want to come back for more. Tell us what you want.

Lakes, Rivers & Wildlife

Temagami boasts North America's most extensive, interconnected canoe route system and Ontario's highest points of land. Here you’ll experience some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers, and vistas in the world -- old growth pine forests, pristine deep water lakes, waterfalls, rugged cliffs. Chances to know wildlife are excellent, be it a surprise encounter with a moose, overhearing a loon symphony, or down at the Smoothwater dock watching the beavers at work.


Interested in paddling instruction? Beef up your canoe skills with a basic canoe lesson, whitewater or flatwater canoe clinic, or ORCKA certification course. We also have guides for hire to suit every kind of group. That in itself is an affordable and efficient way to learn on the go.

Culture & Heritage

Thinking of a change of wilderness pace? Temagami’s rich culture and heritage is yours to discover. Art shows, museums, First Nations pow-wows, the Blueberry Festival, the Foire Gourmande, a Truck Rodeo, theatre and music events dot the annual event landscape.

Ski, Snowshoe, Mountain Bike & Hiking Packages

Be it a cross-country ski, snowshoe, hiking or mountain bike adventure you're after, we can assist you. Every group has different needs, but we know the trails on site at Smoothwater and beyond. We'll craft the best plan for you.

It would take 1,200,000 mosquitoes, each sucking once, to completely drain the average human of blood. Lest we forget, only the females suck.
