Canoeing goes hand in hand with summer, and for many of us, it’s a beloved activity straight out of our childhoods. But, there’s one Canadian whose love for paddling goes above and beyond, turning the hobby of canoeing into a deep-rooted passion.

Drew Czernik is a paddler from Ontario who certainly has an ambitious goal: to canoe and map out 100 lakes from Algonquin Provincial Park in just 100 days. Did we mention that he’s already explored 58 of the lakes?

After working at a summer camp in 1998 at Algonquin, Czernik was inspired to see more of the park and make up for lost time. His travel routes were then planned out based on how accessible each lake was from Canoe Lake.

“I’m feeling pretty good about the lakes I’ve got left. The areas I’ve mapped out are mostly places I haven’t paddled before and I’m excited to see more of the park,” said Czernik. “It’s funny, the more lakes I do, the more I want to do. 100 is starting to feel like it’s not going to be enough to see what I want to see.”
