Voyageurs National Park
A Historic Wilderness
Voyageur means traveler in French, and Voyageurs National Park calls to travelers of the adventurous sort. The landscape here is breathtaking: Water makes up more than one-third of the park's 218,000 acres, and for most of the year, the park's interior is accessible only by boat (or in winter, by snowmobile). Rent a houseboat, take a boat tour with a park ranger, or hike on more than 27 miles of scenic trails, and keep an eye out for hidden waterfalls and ancient petroglyphs.
Much of the year, Voyageurs’ four large lakes, 26 smaller interior lakes, the Ash River, and a vast number of bays and islands are all available to explore by boat.Read More
