Pop-Up Family Activities at our Voyageur Canoe!


Come to the Peterborough Lift Lock this long weekend  to experience a Voyageur Canoe Tour and on-shore activities! 

New paddling family or want to introduce your kids to canoeing? Start on shore and learn all about paddling before heading out in our voyageur canoe!

Come early to your Voyageur Canoe Tour to learn the essentials, explore our canal water table as well as play a round of Portager (our version of twister)! On-shore activities will run Friday (July 29th) and Sunday (September 31st) from 10:30am-3:30pm on the lawn of the Peterborough Lift Lock. Be on the look out for our big black Canoe Museum tent and 36ft canoe in the water, you can't miss us! 

Voyageur Canoe Tours run Friday through Monday at 11:00am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm. It is the perfect way to explore Peterborough's waterway for the first time or your millionth! **Please note that infants (30lbs and under) are not permitted in the canoe due to safety limitations
