This is definitely a technique everyone can try and a destination anyone can visit.
However, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
If you are new to Lake Athapapuskow, it would be really difficult to break down the lake in only 4 to 5 days. In fact, it’s over 66,000 acres in size with numerous channels, islands, and some incredible structure, making it rather difficult to master in a short period of time.
Of course doing a DIY is entirely possible, but perhaps not the most efficient. If you can wing it, I would highly recommend booking a guide, at least for one day on your first trip. That way you have the lay of the lake, an understanding of the necessary gear, and a few solid spots to run your own adventure.
This will lead to much more success in the long run, and a place you can bring your friends and family to again and again.
