Although the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Provincial Park straddle the US/Canadian border, they are distinct. We can advise you on the area best suited to your interests.

The maximum number of persons that can travel together is nine. If you're going to bring young children, we suggest having at least one adult per young child.

If you travel with children, you already know that they see the world differently than you do. Their attention span is shorter and they have less endurance. We've been voyaging with our children since they were babies. We have special routes and activities that give children an enjoyable (and educational) wilderness experience.

You'll have more space to yourself if you start during the middle of the week. Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day are the busiest times. Although you can enjoy the BWCAW or Quetico during a day trip; sunsets, campfires, and coffee perking in the morning are among the great experiences of an expedition. We suggest allowing a minimum of three days and two nights. Most of our guests spend four or five days exploring the Boundary Waters.

Throughout all the years that we've been enjoying the Boundary Waters, we've found routes that satisfy any interest. Just tell us what interests you and we'll show you how to get where you want to be.

Plan to make your expedition fun. No one's going to be proud of you for covering 15 miles in a day when eight is more reasonable. If you have a route in mind, remember to add up the water distance plus three times the portage distance. Not many of us can carry our canoe and gear in just one trip across a portage. You'll have to come back empty-handed to pick up the rest of your equipment.Two miles an hour is a good estimate for your overall paddling speed. Remember to think about staying close to your take-out point on your last night in the Boundary Waters.
