Trip Overview

Paddling.com owner, Brian, his wife, their three children, and a family friend (aka power paddler and pack carrier) spent five days in Quetico Provincial Park. Quetico is an iconic wilderness park located in western Ontario, Canada that is renowned for its rugged beauty, towering rock cliffs, majestic waterfalls, virgin pine and spruce forests, and picturesque rivers and lakes. The park shares its southern border with Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which is part of the larger Lake Superior National Forest.

Gear Notes

Paddled 2 Quetico Canoes from Souris River Canoes. They performed like a dream!

Portage Notes

1 840 meter portage between Nym Lake and Batchewaung Lake. It had been raining when we were on the portage so parts of it were a small river.
