Canoe Trip Devon to Edmonton

On a beautiful Sunday morning our group took a leisurely day paddle down the North Saskatchewan River from Devon to Edmonton with Edmonton Canoe. 5 hours in perfect +20C weather with fun people made this trip a success! Scenery is varied and interesting with hawks, sea birds, bank swallows, beavers, deer, as well as trees, and hoodoo like banks, etc.

We stopped at Big Island, about 2 hours downstream for a bit of a break and light lunch; dodged sand bars, bridges, little rapids and gained skill as steer! You pass many markers along the route as well. Rabbit Hill Ski Hill, Terwillegar Dog Park, Fort Edmonton Park, Hawerlak Park to name a few.
