Boundary Waters and Northwoods Wilderness Adventures
Our Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA), Voyageurs National Park and Canadian wilderness trips are wilderness canoeing at their finest. These vast expanses of millions of acres of forests, lakes, rivers and streams are ideal for canoe enthusiasts and campers who want to venture deep into North America’s great northwoods. Brimming with boundless wildlife and offering scenery, fishing and foraging thrills, you’ll experience the northwoods in the same serenity that voyageurs and Native Americans did.
We offer family and kid-friendly trips in many of the regions we lead trips, but the Namekagon River (a tributary of the St. Croix River) and the St. Croix River (a tributary of the Mississippi River) make for excellent weekend journeys for first-timers and seasoned paddlers alike. You can hone your skills, and know your kids are experiencing the grandeur of the northwoods just a short car ride from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
If you want to try something farther north, consider a canoe trip to NW Ontario’s Wabakimi Provincial Park. Only 4-hours by car north of Thunder Bay, Wabakimi is five times larger than the Boundary Waters, with only a fraction of the visitors. Woodland caribou still roam here, and the fishing is superb. We also do group trips by request to Manitoba’s Grass River, and Ontario’s White Otter Wilderness–all amazing places, especially if you love wilderness.
