Customer Testimonials

  • "What another fantastic summer of trips! I just wanted to express a special thanks for my special "Dad & Grand kids" trip I took in late August this year. I brought my Dad for his first trip to the BWCA this summer, along with my girls. For his first venture into the BWCA, we went on a trip short in length, but filled with an unmeasurable amount of joy.  Every time I talk to my Dad, or any of his friends for that matter, his trip to the BWCA is always, always mentioned with great pride and joy."

  • "I was part of the "Bash" party of four who just returned Sunday from the Boundary Waters. I wanted to express what a professional organization yours is. The equipment was first class. Your organization and packing were far above our expectations and made for a much simpler trip than we ever dreamed of. The maps and routes you suggested were right on target and easily understandable. I would not hesitate to recommend your services and hope you'll pass this on to potential customers. Thanks for helping make the trip a unique experience."

  • "Just wanted to thank you again for the great time we had on our canoe trip. You guys pack more food than five peaople could eat. I forgot to tell John that his worms he gave us actually do stay alive for an extended period. Ours were still quite active even four days into the trip after sitting in the sun all day. Again thanks for all the help and I look forwrd to using your services again in the near future"

    ~ Chuck Wiechmann

  • "Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate all your help before and during our expedition this summer. Your willingness to work patiently with a group on their first Boundary Waters trip truly sets you apart."

    ~ Steve Burger

  • "It is always a pleasure to receive great service from people who truly enjoy what they do. During our trip it got to be a game to see if we could find something that we needed that you did not pack. We didn't. I will certainly use you again for my next trip."

    ~ Jay W. Seiboldt

    ~ Kim Aune

  • "The most memorable moment though was sitting with Jenny watching the stars. We noticed the faint pinkish, green glow. Which I assumed was the aurora. We saw shooting stars and satellites. She kissed me on the cheek and said, "I love you Daddy, thanks for bringing me here!".

    ~ Randy Cox

  • "We have and will continue to recommend your service to anyone interested in a trip to this beautiful wilderness."

    ~ Ed, Peter & Danny Atwood

  • "The customer service and knowledge of all staff was top notch! My Sept 21-24th trip with best friend who I had not seen in 15 years was great. We could not have thought of a better way to get back in touch then a trip to the BWCA."
