Experience the stillness, silence, and solitude as you paddle northern Minnesota’s million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Paddle among towering red and white pines, tamarack bogs, and beautiful white paper birches in this home to moose, lynx, and the eastern timber wolf. Hear the call of the loon and watch the rising sun burn mist off of a mirror-still lake at daybreak. Unwind around an evening campfire and, if you're lucky, see the northern lights streaking across the sky.
Endless variations of Boundary Waters canoe routes await you; you might set out from the Gunflint Trail, the Sawbill Trail, or the Echo Trail. Paddle on lakes and rivers virtually unchanged since the end of the last ice age. Wilderness Inquiry is one of the only organizations that provide two professional guides on each of its BWCAW trips. The Boundary Waters is where Wilderness Inquiry began doing trips over 35 years ago. Our lightweight Wenonah canoes make paddling and portaging much easier than it was back then!
This trip is available for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds; safety equipment, paddling gear, and boats will be provided.
