Join BMA and experience a wonderful long weekend, exploring the majesty of the Middle Mississippi in what is known as the French Corridor. This 65 mile reach includes most of the historic French colonial establishments along the Middle Mississippi River. Our route is from our HQ north of St. Louis (established 1763 by French trader Pierre LaClede), and ends at St. Genevieve, reputed to be the first settlement west of the MS River. We will camp on pristine river islands and eat delicious fire roasted and cast iron cuisine modeled after some of the great French culinary customs of the time.
This is an expedition, meaning we will be making and breaking camp and traveling days in our 30 foot voyageur canoes. We provide the canoes, paddling and safety gear, professional river guides, shuttle to put in and from take out, and all inclusive food service. You provide your camping gear, personal gear and BYOB adult beverages. This trip 3 day 2 night trip begins at 9 am on Friday May 25th and will be back to our HQ on Sunday evening May 27th. Limited to 15 paddlers.
