6 Night Women’s Guided Adventure Canoe Trip

Once a year we offer a women’s guided canoe trip, with a limit of 8 guests.  Our guide will lead you on a beautiful and scenic route through a section of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, paddling, portaging and camping along the way.  Everyone chips in and helps during the trip, although the trip guide will take a lead in doing the cooking and, of course, all the navigating.  To participate in this trip you should have some canoe experience, be able to paddle 3-5 miles a day, and have done some wilderness camping.  Overall the trip is moderate but some experience is appropriate.

6 Night Adult Adventure Guided Canoe Trip


This June trip is a great time to explore the BWCA—the weather is usually decent, the fish should be biting, the water levels are up for the spring season, and the wilderness does not have as many campers yet.  Our group will gather, spend their first night at Gunflint in a bunkhouse, meet each other and go over route planning.  Then the next morning they will head out on a nice loop trip going into the interior of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, looking for moose, catching some fish for dinner and enjoying the campfire time come evening.  The group will move at a steady pace, but this is not a marathon so do not worry about this trip being more than you can handle, although we hope all participants have some previous wilderness camping experience and have some paddling skills.

Includes: Overnight accommodations in a bunk house before and after your canoe trip, plus 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners in the Red Paddle dining room in the main lodge, 4 nights/5 days of complete outfitting, a wilderness guide, all maps, transportation to and from the appropriate canoe landings, showers, and a complete route briefing. Party size is limited to a maximum of 8 participants.

5 Night Family Adventure Guided Canoe Trip

Our guide can take up to 8 guests on this fun family canoe trip. This trip takes you into the Boundary Waters Wilderness on a fairly easy canoe route, with modest sized lakes and fairly short portages. There is a good chance of seeing moose, bald eagles, and beaver. You camp out in tents for 3 nights, so you can enjoy the sound of the wind in the trees, the calling of the loons during the night, and see the twinkling stars across the night skys.

Your guide will review your paddling skills before the trip, and teach you how to camp in the wilderness, how to build your cooking fire and prepare your meals, and share with you his or her knowledge of the BWCA.

Includes: complete outfitting, your first and last night in a canoer cabin at Gunflint, BWCA Adventure Guided Canoe Trips2 dinners and 2 breakfasts in the Red Paddle dining room at the main lodge, a 4 day/3 night guided canoe trip and maps.

Adults $695.00 per person, plus taxes, wilderness permits and user fees
Children thru 12 $495.00 per person
