5 Night "Rustic and Plush" Adventure Vacation

This is a great starter trip which combines a taste of a short wilderness canoe trip with the comfort of several nights in a cabin.  This 5 night trip starts with your first night here at Gunflint staying in a rustic bunkhouse (private unit) and a tasty dinner and breakfast in the lodge dining room.  Then after your briefing and equipment review, you head out into the canoe country for a two night/three day wilderness adventure.  We include all your gear and food, tent, canoes, and maps. We custom plan your trip with you depending on your interests and skills—how far you wish to paddle, do you want to fish, do you want to spend both nights at the same campsite or would you like to move, etc.  At the end of your third day you come back to Gunflint for your last two nights in one of our canoer cabins.  These cabins have comfortable beds, ceiling fan, refrigerator, screened in porch, outside BBQ, and are about 100’ from a central bathroom.  We include two dinners and two breakfasts in the lodge dining room, plus all our hiking trails, canoes, and kayaks during these last days of your package with us.
Depending on your interests and budget, we also offer horseback riding and trips on the Towering Pines Canopy Tour as additional purchases.

Includes: Canoer cabin, complete outfitting, 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts in the Red Paddle restaurant, canoe trip maps, and naturalist activities during your cabin days. Permits and user fees are additional. You provide your own bedding.

Gunflint Wilderness Naturalist Activities

Our summer naturalist program has always been a big part of what makes Gunflint special. We know what a treasure we have here in our woods, waters, and wildlife, and we make it a point to give our guests an opportunity to experience some of these wonders firsthand. Guided hikes and excursions to places of exceptional scenery, historical significance, and areas known to be productive habitat for wildlife are among the many activities offered daily on a rotating basis. Most are designed for "kids" of all ages, but we have a few that are specifically designed with children in mind.
