While I'm only 2 hours from the BWCA here in Northern Minnesota I'm looking for suggested canoe trips down south. Trying to get somewhere between Christmas and New Years. I've looked a little at the White River or Buffalo river in Arkansas. We've paddled moderate Class II. Trout fishing would be preferred. Looking at 4-6 days. Preferably a 10 hour drive radius (though I'm not headed north) from Grand Rapids MN. OR this could be a fly to and rent type of trip if there are other can't miss rivers. Another plus is a "classic/ historic" trip- as in, "Oh you need to paddle XYZ river before you die, it's a classic!"

Thanks in advance!

A couple places on my list:

Lee’s ferry, Black Canyon of the Colorado. Lower river above Yuma.

SlowElk: " Maybe below the GC (not sure about the access) or Big Bend"

It’s farther, but the Florida panhandle has some gorgeous spring-fed rivers everyone should paddle at least once.

...and the Georgia/Florida line is home to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, which offers some great two- and three-night trips. This trip report is from our February 2019 visit. The discussion page includes links to maps, etc, for ONWR. Temps are decent Dec-Feb, and bugs/people are few...

Any one in particular you would recommend? Any outfitters on these rivers?
