Fall Boundary Waters Canoe Week Long Trip

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is over 1 million acres of wilderness where the glaciers left behind rugged cliffs, canyons, gentle hills, towering rock formations, rocky shores, sandy beaches and thousands of lakes and streams, interspersed with islands and surrounded by forest. This unique area is located in northeastern Minnesota along the Canadian border.  Join the crew for a week-long early fall trip paddling and portaging lightweight Kevlar canoes through this amazing wilderness enjoying the water, beautiful scenery, wildlife, and ending our days with the milky way stretching out overhead like a blanket.  This trip will be a combination of canoeing and portaging (hiking between bodies of water).  This is a level 4 trip due the remoteness of the area and physical requirements to paddle a canoe and carry gear and canoes.

The two day ride up will allow for a relaxed drive, overnighting at a Wisconsin cabin providing an opportunity to organize personal and crew gear saving time at the outfitters in Ely.  We’ll also have time to stop in Duluth and have more time in Ely before bunking down the night to get a good night’s rest before hitting the water.  After we come off the water we’ll get showers at the outfitters, eat lunch in Ely and start the two day drive back home.

Those going on the trip should attend the canoe trip training weekend, June 22 & 23.

All trip participants must fill out and submit a CIWC Medical Form  and Long Waiver Form.
