The concept of Nipigon River Adventures in Red Rock, Ontario stems from two perceived needs of Nipigon River Adventures. First, the need for an indoor hub from which to balance the seasonal nature of adventure tourism, and secondly, the need for a base environment more central to popular outdoor adventure destinations.
Nipigon River Adventures is designed to tour in outdoor sports such as fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, and sailing. Two unique attractants are the world-class brook trout fishing location on the Nipigon River and the adjacent Lake Superior for fresh air water and land activities. Great hiking, mountain biking and kayaking/canoing opportunities lie within ten miles of Nipigon River Adventures hub – The Lodge.
Nipigon River Adventures has its base in The Lodge, situated in Red Rock, near Thunder Bay, Ontario. Access by plane is an easy flight to Thunder Bay through Toronto or Winnipeg.
We are located in the middle of the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area. The Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area is the largest freshwater protected area in the world spanning over 10,000 square kilometres in size. It is home to over 50 shipwrecks, 70 species of fish and countless islands and bays. National Marine Conservation Areas are managed by Parks Canada and they are part of a nation-wide family of protected areas. These special places strive to conserve delicate marine ecosystems in ways where traditional activities such as hunting, fishing and boating will continue to be enjoyed by people today and future generations.
Nipigon River Adventures is designed to promote and operate outdoor adventure sports and travel. We will be leaders in our industry through innovation and preservation. We will sustain a reputation of quality through excellent service, customer care, and a friendly, professional staff. Our guests are the focus of our company. We will generate a profit in an ethical manner while meeting and exceeding our guests’ expectations.
The Lodge was built in 1937 to house company officials. Located high on the Lodge Mountain overlooking the Nipigon Bay the site provides a spectacular view of Lake Superior and the islands.
Built at a cost of $50 000, the building was constructed of logs cut in the area. The Lodge has remained much the same as it was in 1937, only the kitchen has been modernized. The huge stone fireplace dominates the living room and provides a cozy atmosphere.
