We can accommodate canoe trips of any length. There are many factors, but we typically recommend 5 days or more to allow time to leave the hustle bustle at home and get into rhythm with the wilderness. That said, a shorter trip might better suit your group; there are lots of great Quetico and Boundary Waters routes for short trips.
Now that we know who is going, when, and what you are looking for, we can start talking about specific route options. If you haven’t already, this is the time to call us at 800-223-6565. Our outfitting managers Drew and Adam can help you sift through the hundreds of miles of canoe routes and find the one that best fits your crew.
Once we have a route in mind, the next step is to reserve the permit for the appropriate entry point on the appropriate date. We will walk you through this process.
The next step is to determine what gear you have and what gear you will need to rent from us. We can help you with as much or as little gear as you need for your trip. The Boundary Waters Packing List will help get you started.
