Boundary Waters Canoe Area Adventure

BWCAW. A Trip Like No Other.

Northern Minnesota is home to the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness -- the largest canoeing wilderness in the United States. There are over 1,000 clear water lakes in this million+ acre wilderness. It makes up the finest canoeing area available.

The Ely Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area - BWCA is home to the largest wilderness east of the Rockies, with over a million acres of to explore.  Ely, Minnesota has the largest number of Boundary Waters entry points and the most diverse number of wilderness canoe routes. There is nothing like a Boundary Waters canoe trip to cleanse the soul and get back to the basics of life.  Call today to set up your wilderness experience.

The pristine territory of Ely Minnesota, surrounded by these Boundary Waters border lakes, has been preserved through the cooperative efforts of the US and Canadian Federal governments, along with Ontario Provincial and Minnesota State governments and outfitters as they respectively administer the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) and Quetico Provincial Park. The portages, paths winding between lakes, once used by the French trappers and voyageurs of the Hudson's Bay Company, remain unchanged over centuries of use. Canoe trip fishing in the Boundary Waters centers around smallmouth bass, northern pike, and walleye.

A Boundary Waters Canoe trip is like no other...with over 2,000 solitary campsites and 1,500 miles of canoe routes it's no wonder National Geographic Traveler named the Boundary Waters as one of the 50 trips everyone should take in their lifetime.

Our BWCA canoe trips are designed for groups of friends, business partners or clients, honeymooners, families, and Boy Scout Troops or other youth groups. Our canoe trip parties explore the Boundary Waters for wildlife and see fantastic scenery of lakes, rivers and streams, waterfalls and forests.

Within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCAW) Wilderness the ageless sights and sounds and smells of emerald pine forests and sapphire blue lakes are now awaiting your arrival here in the BWCA Wilderness. We are looking forward to assisting your canoe trip with our knowledge of the area, our top quality equipment, and convenient BWCA outfitters services.

Camping permits must be reserved for both the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Park. One permit is good for up to 9 people for both U.S. and Canadian trips. There are a limited number of permits issued per day at each entry point. Due to the heavy weekend traffic, it is much easier to get a permit mid-week. We will make all necessary arrangements for your permit as soon as we receive your reservation. Permits are reserved on a first come basis, so the sooner you set your dates, the better chance of us getting your preferred date and entry point.
