Great Times in Alaska

I have traveled and enjoyed numerous winter adventures around the world, but The Canoe Guru's annual pilgramage with Esprit's week of rivers is an amazing adventure you must experience.  The lodging, food and logistics Esprit provides makes this a premiere canoeing adventure that is both affordable and memorable.  This season we will be gathering in Northern Costa Rica near the Sarapiqui River.  Sign up now to escape winter and join us in this tropical paradise.

American Canoe Association L:1 through L:4 canoe instructors can update their certification for no additional charge during Eli Helbert's Week of Rivers in Costa Rica, 2015.

The Canoe Guru is thankful for the rain (but ready for more)!

Eli Helbert, aka The Canoe Guru, is psyched about the precipitation!  Is there canoeing in your weekend forecast?
