Places to Go

Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness canoe trip outfitting on the Gunflint Trail, Grand Marais, Minnesota. Here in Northern Minnesota, the famed Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario comprise the largest waterways wilderness in the world. This huge area with its thousands of lakes is dedicated to the paddling canoer. We travel and explore this country as temporary visitors, leaving only our footprints.
