Boundary Waters Canoe Trip - 641753

Located in northern Minnesota, the Boundary Waters is a roadless area set aside for canoe campers who want to experience the mystery, solitude and rugged beauty of a true wilderness. Our trip includes five days of canoeing. We'll set up tents in primitive campsites each night, cook meals over a camp stove, and portage our gear around waterfalls and rapids.

Participants must be physically able to paddle a canoe and carry gear across rocky trails.
