Chocpaw Expeditions provides hiking trips designed to meet the requirements of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Programme.

Chocpaw Expeditions has selected  a variety of hiking trails in Algonquin Provincial Park, Killarney Provincial Park and the Temagami area.  Each trail offers spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing opportunities.  We camp at night beside a lake or river.  The pace is relaxed and enjoyable.  We take the opportunity to swim in the lakes and rivers, to relax, and enjoy the trail.  Hikes duration will meet The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award requirements.  Most trails are loops.

Chocpaw Expeditions provides the camping equipment.  Packs and sleeping pads are available for rent.  Participants need to supply their own good footwear, clothing and a sleeping bag.
