Magpie Trip Letter

Dear Magpie trip Participant:

Thank you for choosing Earth River's Expedition on the Magpie River. Every effort will be made to make your trip a safe and enjoyable experience. This hidden link section of the web site was designed to help you prepare for your trip. Enclosed you will find information on equipment, weather, travel and other necessary information. Please read it carefully. If you have any further questions please contact our office.

The Magpie expedition is remote and moderately strenuous so participants should make sure that they are in good physical condition. This trip is an "active" vacation, as you will be paddling rafts, inflatable kayaking, sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and hiking. Participants may choose to ride in a gear boat if they would prefer not to paddle. As soon as you have secured your flights to Sept Iles, please e-mail this information to Earth River at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Those participants who are driving to Sept Iles from the northeast can contact our office so we can help you secure the ferry reservation across the St. Lawrence.

Remember you should plan to arrive in Sept Iles by 10:30 AM on the arrival date and will be free to fly back out at the trip's conclusion, any time on Sunday. If you have any other questions please drop me a note and I look forward to meeting you up there.
