  Pete Swiggum



Pete has been paddling canoes since his youth as a Boy Scout at summer camp, but his true love of canoeing didn't start until he was invited to join his friends on a wilderness canoe trip into Quetico Provincial Park in 1986. His first thoughts were, "Yes, I'd love to go, but where is Quetico?" Pete has since made approximately 30 trips into Quetico. His highlight being in 2010 when his son, Kyle, himself, and two friends made a cross-Quetico trip paddling northwest to southeast through the park, then paddling southwesterly along the border through the Man Chain of lakes and coming out at Moose Lake. Quetico is an amazing place that one could explore - one trip at a time - for a lifetime.



Presentations

 Quetico Provincial Park: The Ultimate How-to
Superior - main floor Fri 5:30pm-6:15pm 
BWCA - main floor Sat 10:30am-11:15am 

Looking to do a canoe trip in Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park, but don't know how to get started? Pete has been doing canoe trips and enjoying everything Quetico has to offer since the mid-1980's. His session will cover the full gamut of trip planning - from making reservations to sharing information about entry points, route planning and destinations, as well as campsites, wonderful scenery, fishing, and special rules and regulations. His goal is to help you plan your first (or next) trip to Quetico!
