For kayakers, bird watchers, and photographers the 9 km Big Creek in Norfolk Country is the ideal launch point to explore the Canadian outdoors.
Kayaking on Big Creek
Known as Canada’s Amazon, the meandering Big Creek in Norfolk County (Ontario, Canada) takes you through the marshes and thick vegetation of the Carolinian forest to the open waters close to Lake Erie.
For first time kayakers this approx. 9 km paddling experience is ideal before getting into choppy waters elsewhere.
Our (my wife and I and two friends) journey included two hours of paddling on Big Creek, followed by a short break, and then two hours paddling into the Big Creek National Wildlife Area.
An environmentalist at heart, a kayaker and teacher of nature by passion, Brian took us on a four hour journey that inspired this story.
