I have always wanted to camp and canoe in the BWCA and my two teenage daughters were ready for it. Voyageur outfitted us with everything we needed and helped us plan our route. The route we chose was perfect and Tony recommended some campsites that were just amazing. Getting to sleep in the bunkhouse the night before the trip was...

My kids (ages 15,13 and 11) and I love camping and spending time outside. I loved the idea of this vacation from the time I found it. And it lived up to all of it expectations. We got the complete outfitters package because it is a 16 hour drive to get there. The equipment was all clean and in excellent...

This was our first stay in a Voyageur cabin. Cabin and its guest cabin were more than enough space for our family of 8 children, my husband and me. Upon arrival we found a charcoal grill as well as a fire ring. Plenty of firewood in the surrounding wooded yard. Gas grill on deck, which overlooks the beautiful river, a...

Had an ambitious 3 day trip planned and about 5 hours into rowing with my girlfriend we decided to pull onto an island in the middle of Lake Sag and spend two nights there.

We're happy you had a blast on your wilderness canoe trip. We're glad we could be a part of your time away from the city. Saganaga is one of my favorite Boundary Waters lakes and I'm glad you seemed to appreciate it as much as I do. Sometimes it's nice to just set up a base camp and relax and...

Earlier this summer, I used Voyageur Canoe Outfitters at the beginning of a solo trip to the Quetico. My experience from beginning to end with them was top notch! Using their bunkhouse was something new as we had always used a hotel the night before we put in. The bunkhouse was somewhat spartan but clean and quiet and I had...

We bought the Groupon with some friends. We have a lot of our own gear, and didn't think we would need much of the gear provided other than the canoes, bunk stay, and stove. We ended up taking almost all of it, and I'm glad we did. The gear was high quality, and the canoes were great. I was surprised...

They were recommended by friends. We did only partial outfitting, bringing our own canoe, equipment and food. They provided us a bunkhouse the night before our trip which included showers and hot breakfast. We chose to have dinner with them the evening before our trip and it was a great value. A sumptuous, delicious meal for much less than we...
