Experience a wilderness canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) and Canada's Quetico Park. Ely, Minnesota is the jumping off point for the vast wilderness. At Voyageur North, we serve you in two important ways, we outfit you with the right equipment and supplies and we plan a customized expedition just for you. With thousands of lakes and an almost unlimited number of possible routes, our knowledge can make a huge difference in your experience.
A wilderness trip is your chance to get away from that monotonous everyday routine. It is your chance to paddle the crystal clear northern lakes and explore secluded bays or high rock cliffs. Then as the day draws to a close, you can rest by the shore of a quiet lake reliving the day's experiences or simply savor the embers of the evening campfire.
A canoe trip can be many things but one thing for sure, a wilderness canoe trip is "the experience of your life at a price you can afford". Boundary Waters Canoe Outfitting and Canoe Vacations are what Voyageur North Outfitters do best. We offer a wide variety of services to fit your canoeing vacation needs. Our goal is to provide you with the best service for the best value.
We're John and Lynn O'Kane, your hosts at Voyageur North Outfitters. For over 25 years, we have operated on a very simple principle: when you serve people well and give them good value, they come back. Outfitting is our only business. It's not a hobby or a side job. It's what we do for a living. We're proud to be members of the Professional Paddlesport Association. John, Lynn, and the rest of the VNO staff look forward to meeting you on your next trip to the BWCAW!
