The wilds of Northern Ontario are coming to Calgary

    A unique wilderness adventure - no experience required

    TORONTO, March 26 /CNW/ - Imagine yourself paddling past a moose in the
morning mist or listening to the haunting howl of a wolf while lying under a
sky filled with a million stars. Even if you're a complete beginner, these
exotic-sounding experiences are easy for you and your family to enjoy. Meet
the experts and find out how: world-renowned adventure journalists Gary and
Joanie McGuffin are bringing the unique Northern Ontario wilderness experience
to town.
    "We want to show people what is easily accessible in Northern Ontario,
and provide them with the tools and knowledge to help them explore this
summer," say Gary and Joanie McGuffin. The photojournalists, conservationists
and modern-day Canadian explorers will be on hand at the Calgary Adventure
Show, March 31 - April 1.
    The McGuffins' stunning images of the Northern Ontario region will be
featured at live presentations, and at an art gallery-style display at their
booth. "Our live presentation is going to focus on Quetico Provincial Park,
because it's easy and appealing and it has all the right attributes to talk
about traveling with a family," says Joanie McGuffin. The McGuffins travel
with their seven-year-old daughter.
    Afterwards you can stop by their booth for their first-hand advice on
family adventures, and pick up details on Paddling Ontario members - adventure
travel providers province-wide, who help beginners and seasoned paddlers to
arrange memorable experiences, from half-day to multi-day, guide-led or
lodge-stay holidays.
    If the thought of taking your family into the backwoods of Ontario
frightens you, then this is a must attend event. "There isn't an experience
more quintessentially Canadian than a family canoe trip," says Joanie
McGuffin. "Unfortunately there is a whole generation out there who have never
experienced one." If you are one of those, come and let Gary and Joanie show
even purist city slickers how to safely and easily get out and have fun.

    The McGuffins (www, are available to the media
for interviews.
