Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW)
Whether you’ve worked with Voyageurs Canoe Country for years or you are considering a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) for the first time, there have never been more options available to you. We have been working hard to create trip types that meet the interests, time frames and budgets of our guests. One thing hasn’t changed though—the top-notch staff and service they provide. The BWCAW is a unique area located in the northern third of the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota. Receding glaciers left behind rugged cliffs and crags, canyons, gentle hills, towering rock formations, rocky shores, sandy beaches and several thousand lakes and streams, interspersed with islands and surrounded by forest. Over 1 million acres in size, it extends nearly 150 miles along the International Boundary. The BWCAW contains over 1200 miles of canoe routes and over 2000 designated campsites. Wilderness offers freedom to those who wish to pursue an experience of expansive solitude, challenge and personal integration with nature. It allows visitors to canoe, portage and camp in the spirit of the French Voyageurs of 200 years ago. ~Excerpt from the Superior National Forest website
