About the Event

Join us for this week long paddle adventure through the vast Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) in Northern Minnesota. This is a true wilderness experience far from any roads or towns. Wildlife includes moose, otter, beaver, wolves, eagles, and more. We provide lodging before and after the trip, all necessary group gear, amazing food, permit reservation and user fees, and of course your licensed professional wilderness guide committed to your successful adventure. 

This trip starts in Ely, MN. We will arrive on the evening of June 1st at a designated lodge to go over gear and trip details. Sunday morning, we head out for an early start to our adventure. 

Enjoy 7 full days of paddling expedition style through 45+ miles of pristine lakes and wilderness. We plan for a couple layover days during the trip to relax at camp, practice coutdoor skills, fish, etc. The itinerary may change due to weather conditions or group interest. Everyone will paddle tandem canoes, help with portages, set up/take down camp, process firewood, share cooking and cleaning up of meals and any other activity of the day. We not only have years of experience in all aspects of the BWCA, but we are teachers, cooks, leaders, storytellers, fishermen and naturalists. We can assure you that our team leads a safe, fun, and educational trip!

Menu items: We believe cliff bars and ramen soup have their place but not on our trips. We love a varied menu that includes delicious meals. A few camp favorites include our famous BBQ pork spaghetti, Rumchata French toast, fruit and yogurt parfait, and the ultimate burrito bowl. We can accommodate some special diets as well. Just let us know how we can help.

Difficulty: Challenging

This trip is not for first-time campers or paddlers. You should be comfortable in a canoe and in the water. You should be able to provide sufficient clothing and personal gear items as per the gear list. Everyone will be expected to help around camp and on the water including portaging gear and canoes between waterways. Expect to carry 50 - 60 pounds of gear or a canoe for short distances on portage trails. The pace will be relaxed at times and challenging at others. Expect to paddle several hours on paddle days and portage over land when necessary. We plan to have 2 zero-travel days for time to fish, swim, relax, etc.
