Canoeing in the Boundary Waters

Canoeing Trips in the Boundary Waters

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Provincial Park stretch for nearly 160 miles (258 km.) between Minnesota and Ontario. When it comes to canoe wilderness, it is unmatched. The vastness of this historical wilderness comprises a land of forests, rivers, deep, clear lakes, wildlife, and unsurpassed natural beauty. Canoeing through the million-plus acre wilderness has been the righteous desire, if not rite of passage, forever. The routes paddled will follow the same water routes used by the Sioux, Chippewa, and the French-Canadian Voyageurs.
