The best scenic canoe trips are known for wilderness adventure with journeys among scenic mountain beauty, caves, historic attractions, and more.
Canoes were developed by the American Indians with a slim hull for easy navigation through calm waters. They were mainly used for fishing and transportation. Today, variations of the Indian canoe can be found in other global destinations.
In some global destinations, canoe/paddling trips may feature sit on top kayaks with a slightly wider hull where paddlers sit higher up from the bottom. Most sit-on-tops are built for recreational paddling, beginning paddlers, novice canoeists, and for people who have flexibility problems with the traditional kayaks.
