Taiga Wilderness Tripper (Kit) Description

Pygmy named their first canoe, the Taiga after the great north woods, where some of the largest tracts of wilderness remain. This area is sprinkled with lakes and rivers of all sizes. Retreating glaciers left behind some of the finest wilderness paddling to be had. The Taiga tracks nicely and displays good manners in a wide variety of conditions. Although designed with extended wilderness paddlers in mind, her easy handling, good stability and low weight make her an excellent choice for weekend and day excursions as well.

The best boats are made by...

The best boats are made by me from a Pygmy kit. The beauty of the wood and the grace of the lines while quietly gliding through the water make me the envy of those with fiberglass and plastic boats. The boat is stable and lightweight and even has room to carry some gear. It tracks well in the wind and did I beautiful.
