Canoe Routes

OutfittingCanoeing solo through the BWCA can be a great way to take your spirit to the next level. Taking a solo trip connects you closer to the wilderness, giving you more opportunity to recognize all that the BWCA has to offer. Smaller campsites means that you can go to the next lake with confidence that any campsite you find will be more than adequate for one person, one tent. Less noise from your campsite can mean additional wildlife viewing opportunities and expanded fishing options. Just relying on yourself can help build your confidence, giving you the drive you need to seek the next challenge. Planning a solo trip is much easier than planning a group trip; there is only one calendar you have to satisfy, one set of needs, one timeline.

We offer several solo canoes and a solo outfitting package to help you with the challenge. We can provide just the canoe, the canoe and equipment, or the complete package of canoe, equipment and all the food you’ll need, completely organized and packed for your trip.

Add peace of mind with our inReach satellite texting device ($15 a day plus 50 cents per text each way, you should reserve this well in advance), giving you an emergency SOS feature and your family a website to follow your progress. You can even send texts, two-way, so you can keep up to date on family events. Or you can just stash it in your canoe pack and use it only if necessary. It pairs through bluetooth to your smartphone as an awesome GPS, and allowing you to use your smartphone’s keyboard for texting or emails.

Solo Kevlar canoe only is $38/day, includes yoke, portage pads, both kayak and std paddle, and parking.
Our ultralight Kevlar canoes range in size from 15′-6″ to 16′-9″ and weight from 28 lbs to 40 lbs.

Day trips are a great way to see the wilderness and stay in a comfortable Cabin or Bunkhouse. Daily permits into BWCAW are available at no charge at both the Lodge and Outfitting. You can take the canoe that comes with your cabin, rent one of our lightweight Kevlar canoes, or bring your own. The Entry Point, EP 47 Lizz Lake, is a short paddle across Poplar Lake. When you cross the midpoint of Lizz you'll be in the Boundary Waters! A few short portages awaits you, and you'll be in the heart of one of the nicest parts of the eastern wilderness. Caribou, Meeds, Horseshoe and Vista are all within a day's paddle and back.
