Luggage checklist – Things you’ll need

Summer. The days can get really hot (25 °C on average), but no worries—the opportunities abound to take a dip! Pack some light clothes, swimwear, sun cream, insect repellent, walking shoes, throw in a sweater and a pair of pants for cooler evenings. You might also want to bring a light raincoat if you are planning to do a river cruise to shield you from wind and downpours.

Autumn. Days in fall can be quite chilly. However, a few days of Indian summer before mid-October might provide a short interval of warmer climes. Throw in a woolen pullover or a sweater for the chilly days. Take a camera to capture the beauty of fall in this part of Canada.

Winter. This is true winter wonderland with loads of snow and temperatures falling to -15 °C on average. Under a windbreaker, essential to shield you from the icy wind and/or heavy snow—wear at least two layers of clothing, one of which should be thick. You’ll need the whole kit: boots, warm socks, mittens, beanie, woolen scarf. You might also want to consider warm/long underwear. Skin and lips protection will prevent them from getting chapped. For snowmobiling, additional wear can often be provided onsite. Now, you’re ready to face the North with a smile!
