Lake to see the now abandoned Cadeaux family cabin or along the trail to Thor Lake to see an old mining site. Photo opportunities are endless. We値l take a short break to rest the dogs and have hot drinks before heading back to the lodge. Along the way you might catch a glimpse of the tracks of lynx, wolf, otter or even moose. Your guide will be on the lookout for these signs and will point them out to you. At the end of your journey you値l have the chance to visit with your team and grab those last minute pictures.
