      • This is a moving trip with many miles and many portages. The goal is to travel through the wilderness and take on challenges as they come up. Participants must be prepared for varying weather conditions.

 The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness offers stunning scenery and spectacular waterfalls.  Along the Voyageur Highway you'll see Basswood Falls, Crooked Lake, Curtain Falls, Table Rock, and incredible pictographs (Native American rock paintings).  Your imagination will be stirred as you float by cliffs and imagine them being painted centuries ago.  Who knew that the work done by them would generate such curiosity and amazement.  Come with us and paddle the same lakes as well as walk the portages and paths as the Voyageur and Indian shaman of many years ago.

Things to know about a BWCAW Trip before signing up: 

  • This is wilderness camping. Portages and campsites will have uneven ground. You will be walking over rocks, roots, in the water, and up/down paths. It is important to feel comfortable with your mobility on uneven terrain.

  • On a canoe trip, it is important to be able to get in and out of a canoe on your own. The landings can be slippery and rocky. You will also have to get up off the ground whether it’s from your tent or camp chair.
  • We will be portaging on this canoe trip. You will have to carry everything that you bring for the trip (remember to pack accordingly). It’s okay to make multiple trips, but you should be able to carry a pack (30-50lbs) over uneven terrain. 
  • A BWCAW trip requires teamwork. The guide will take a lead role on camp chores and portaging but be prepared to pitch in to help the group. 

Please Note: A $300 deposit is required to hold your spot. Final payment for this trip is due 30 days before the trip and is non-refundable. Please look into trip insurance if needed.
