These canoes were designed for historical hunting, trekking and spirited paddling. They have the look and in some cases even the feel of a genuine birch bark canoe yet require less maintenance.
They are fast and easy to paddle and depending on length weigh from 45 to 75 pounds. As a result they are easy to load on top of a vehicle and portage.



ABOUT THE CANOES

Our Goal
Not everyone lives in an area conducive to the birchbark canoe - too hot or dry. Some want a canoe with the look of the birchbark canoe that can be banged around, left in the yard, taken hunting or fishing or ricing at a reasonable price. Others want the look and feel of a birchbark canoe both inside and out that can be used in re-enacting. With that in mind we do two types in a few different designs.

On the right is the "Basic" lay-up model. Each comes in any of the three different styles.
