These routes are based on a moderate paddling speed of about 5 kilometers / hour or (~3 Miles / hour). Given 3-5 hours of travel with breaks, and portages,16 km (~10 miles) is a very reasonable distance. This pace can be maintained over a long trip and will allow for wind and foul weather. Experienced paddlers who pack light enough to do single or double portages can very easily double that distance. Adding extra days is always a good idea.
