Although our Canadian-made canoes were only available locally back when we got our start in 1970, demand for quality canoes in the U.S and areas of Europe allowed us to expand our reach. You can now enjoy the superior quality of our Canada-built canoes in the U.S, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, France, Ireland, as well as the United Kingdom.

The Best Way to Experience Nature
From the Dordogne and Lot Rivers in France to the Lakelands of Ireland and from pristine Lake Saimaa in Finland to the endless lakes and rivers throughout the U.S. and the U.K., your Nova Craft canoe is the ultimate craft to experience the wondrous beauty of your local wilderness. With a series designed to suit the needs of any paddler, our canoes made in Canada use proven designs for superior handling, lightweight transporting and exceptional comfort, and safety. In our opinion, the best place to buy a canoe is the place that sells Nova Craft!
Partnering with Local Experts
Our goal was to find the best outfitters in key areas of the world where the natural landscape lends itself to this popular pastime. We have partnered with expert suppliers in Canada, North America and Europe to ensure our canoes can easily get into the hands of the world’s most avid paddlers, novice day-trippers and wilderness-loving families.
The Most Beautiful Sites of North America
Nova Craft has a true appreciation for the stunning power and beauty of lakes and rivers around the globe. With this in mind, we sought to find the ideal areas where our customers were most likely to live and/or travel. Our customers have tackled the challenging portages of Yellowknife to take in the beauty of Hidden Lake, and the fulfilling and exhilarating journey of the Gander River in Newfoundland.
They have experienced over 740 miles of connected waterways through New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, and found their special place in Bowron Lakes, British Columbia with its awe-inspiring mountains, forests, and deep, clear lakes. They discovered their love of paddling on Utah’s Green River, taking in the canyons of America’s true Southwest, but also found solace in their local lakes a stone’s throw from their family cottages.
Discovery in the U.K.
Across the pond in the U.K. the country is dotted with lakes and riddled with rivers ideal for day journeys and finding idyllic campgrounds. From the views of the Isle of Wight at Studland Bay to the picturesque Fellfoot Park and the lakes and dams of Northumberland Estate to the Islands of Derwent Waters, the history and natural beauty of the U.K. could take years to explore. In Ireland, you can visit Europe’s only saltwater lake, Lough Hyne or explore the picturesque towns and villages along the River Shannon in and around Lough Derg Blueway. Our canoes are made for these waters, with safe travels and handling for any level of paddler.
Europe’s Love of Nature
In Sweden, the coastline, Canals and Archipelago await, in hand with the beauty of Värmland Nature Province’s Glaskogen, or the longest river Klarälven. France is all about the rivers, while Finland is known for its beautiful lake routes including Hirvisaari, Jongunjoki, and Ruokolahti. Nova Craft canoes rise to all these occasions offering ultimate comfort and control.
The growing popularity of our Canada made canoes promises to keep opening new borders allowing us to offer sales to more and more customers around the world. Interested in becoming a dealer? Contact us today.
