Yoga & Wellness Paddling ExcursionReconnect with nature and yourself.
Connecting with nature opens the doors to wider connections to ourselves and those we love. With that reality in mind, we offer this intergenerational women’s paddling retreat as an opportunity to practice breathing and moving in some of the Kawarthas’ most beautiful backcountry locations. Our paddling guides and certified yoga instructors have designed this trip to help you find the ideal secluded location in the Kawarthas, taking time for sessions designed to maintain mindfulness in your yoga and paddling practice.
All our paddling excursions begin with a dock-talk and a lesson to help ensure our party paddles swiftly and safely along our course.

Yoga & Wellness Paddling Excursion
Bretton and I worked together at Trent University, so when he mentioned his adventure business, I was intrigued. We discussed several places to paddle and settled on Eel’s Creek, because I wanted to try my hand at some entry level whitewater. I have my own canoe, but the Land provided all the additional gear, refreshments and even a shuttle service, and before the trip, Bretton even helped me load my boat on my own vehicle. Afterwards, we hit the Canoe and Paddle Pub in Lakefield for pints and snacks. It was a lovely day on the water, and I look forward to paddling with the Land again.
