Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters offers guided trip 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 trip:

Women's Guided Trip
Once a year we offer a women’s guided canoe trip, with a limit of 8 guests. Our guide will lead you on a beautiful and scenic route through a section of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, paddling, portaging and camping along the way.

7 Night Adult Guided Canoe Trip
This August trip is one of our favorites—the weather is usually nice and warm, the fish should be biting, the water levels are decent, and the wilderness does not have as many campers this week. Our group will gather, spend their first night at Gunflint in a bunkhouse, meet each other and go over route planning.

Custom Guided Trips
All our guided trips are custom planned for just you and your party. We visit with you to figure out what you are looking for, to understand your experience level, and the amount of challenge and adventure you would like. We will match you up with one of our experienced guides and they will share their skills with you as they lead you on what we know will be one of your most memorable trips anywhere.

Please visit our site, email, or call for more information.
