Wilderness Tripping Canoes

Canoeing.com Definition: These canoes generally have increased carrying capacity for the big loads required by two to three paddlers on trail for weeks at a time. Solo or tandem, these canoes typically range from 15'-18' in length and are designed to be stable and efficient to paddle. A canoe's specific design features will be your ultimate guide to selecting the appropriate canoe—for the most efficient paddling, the highest capacity, for portaging and paddling lake to lake or for running big rivers. For more information go to Choosing a Canoe.

SELECT A CANOE BY MATERIAL:
Fiberglass Composites
Light, strong and economical. Compared to other materials, can be shaped more finitely making cleaner entry lines, resulting in an efficient and a quiet ride.
See Materials: Fiberglass> Solo Canoes> Tandem Canoes
Kevlar® Composites
Lighter than fiberglass, strong, durable, and abrasion-resistant. A layered fabric composite, sometimes reinforced with other materials.
See Materials: Kevlar> Solo Canoes> Tandem Canoes
Royalex®
Heavier than composite boats, but more durable and impact-resistant. Popular for canoes designed for whitewater use.
See Materials: Royalex> Tandem Canoes
Wood
