  • Hide-Away Canoe Club Trip List

    The Hide-Away Canoe Club was founded in 1981 and has been canoeing historic canoe routes in Canada's north almost every year since. In 1985, as part of a 1000 mile, 55-day trip, they named a river after Eric Morse, the dean of Canadian wilderness canoeists, while he was still alive. The group's regular crew consists of the four Peake brothers -- Michael, David, Sean and Geoffrey, the Rev. Peter Scott, Peter Brewster, Andrew Macdonald and Tom Stevens. In the last 16 years they have paddled thousand of miles of wilderness waters from the Yukon to Ungava. Click here to learn more about the team members on the Winisk to the Bay trip.
