Boundary Waters Trip Packages
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA), is a 1,090,000-acre wilderness area within the Superior National Forest in the northeastern part of Minnesota. There are a lot of similarities to Algonquin, but the permit process, route selection, and navigation are a little different. We’ve partnered with a seasoned (25 years!) local outfitter to facilitate and serve nonprofit group trips at discounted rates.
We offer one package for Boundary Waters trips, which is similar to the Deluxe Canoe Package offered in Algonquin — but with some serious upgrades!

Permits in BWCAW work a little differently than in Algonquin. Rather than reserving a route, groups will reserve an entry point. The number of groups per entry point is metered/limited. Once inside the wilderness area, your route can be flexible.
This can be liberating, but it becomes more important to secure the appropriate access point for your planned route as early as possible.
NOTE: Permits will be secured by our outfitting partner on your behalf, paid by us, then billed on your final invoice for Boundary Waters trips.
