Mississippi River & Twin Cities Wilderness Adventures
The Mighty Mississippi River is truly one of the great rivers of the world. Wilderness Inquiry began paddling the river in the early 1980s, and we have come to fully appreciate its beauty and its power. Over the years, water quality has dramatically improved. Otter and beaver again grace its banks and the fishing is superb. More and more people are beginning to appreciate this world class resource–the one river everyone in the world knows by name. The stretch of river between Coon Rapids and Hastings is a unit of the National Park Service–the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. It’s a wild and wonderful ribbon of life that flows through the heart of the Twin Cities.
Join Wilderness Inquiry, the National Park Service, and many of our partners on a Mississippi River canoe trip or a visit to Itasca State Park, the location of the headwaters of the Mississippi River. There are so many ways to enjoy the Mighty Mississippi!
