Voyageur trekking paddle


The voyageur trekking paddle is based on the paddles developed by the Canadian fur traders depicted in the paintings by Frances Anne Hopkins.

The voyageur trekking paddle is an all rounder with a powerful robust blade and good catch. The paddle gives you good yet subtle control and will power you through the water. The angular line of the shoulder ensures that water does not flow back into the boat during recovery.

All our paddles are made to order, expect a delivery time of ± 14 days.

The voyageur trekking paddle is made up of a cherry, walnut and ayous laminate. That guarantees a solid and relatively light combination. The pear-shaped oiled grip gives the voyageur a pleasant and smooth feel. The voyageur trekking paddle is available with a semi-gloss varnished or an oiled finish.

Which size?

Sizing the paddle is best done on the water in your own canoe. The length of the shaft is dependent on your seating position, the height of the seats and the freeboard of the canoe. Sit in the canoe and measure the vertical distance from your horizontally outreached hand to the waterline. This measurement matches the distance from a paddle’s grip to the throat, where the paddle shaft meets the blade.

On land, trying out a paddle: sit down on a flat surface. Hold the paddle upside down, place the grip between your legs. The throat of the paddle should be between your eyes. Without a paddle at hand, measure the distance between your bottom and your eyes.
