Overview:

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.

Each visit to this area is a wilderness adventure. You
encounter a never ending variety of clear water lakes and
enjoy nature as it happens - from a feeding moose to a
calling loon, fishing for a tasty walleye to listening to
the crackle of your campfire, or just enjoying the fading
sunset as dusk settles in the Gunflint wilderness.

We invite you to join us for an adventure trip in this vast
wilderness area. A sampling of our many guided and unguided
trips for people of all ages, abilities and inclinations are
described in the pages you can click on from the above list
on the left.

Our unique trips set the standards for adventure in the
Boundary Waters country, from our care for the environment,
to the thorough planning of your trip and the commitment to
excellence we offer based on our 70+ years of outfitting at
Gunflint.
