First Timer?

Been there.
Done that.
Don’t worry. We can help!

The process of planning a Boundary Waters canoe trip can be confusing, even overwhelming, if you’ve never done it before. The reason it’s so complicated is because the BWCA itself is so diverse, and there are so many options for trip routes, travel objectives, and types of watercraft and gear.

So many questions!

You have a lot of questions. There seems to be a thousand details and decisions that you have to make, and it’s almost impossible for a first-timer to wade through all that deep water alone.

We understand what you’re going through. Our mission is to make the process as easy as possible for you. We take you—step...by...step—through the planning and preparation stages, answering your questions, explaining your options, and advising you on the best way to go, so you can have a memorable and enjoyable canoe trip the first time…and every time!.
