A Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness adventure or Quetico Park adventure requires the right canoe and equipment. Voyageur Canoe Outfitters has everything you need and more.

State of the Art Equipment: When you are camping in the wilderness you do not want to worry about your equipment. We provide you with quality equipment at an affordable price so you can enjoy your time in the canoe country. Your canoe is the most important piece of equipment on your canoe trip so you’ll want to be sure to choose the right one. The equipment we send out on BWCAW trips is the same equipment we take with us when we paddle the wilderness ourselves.

Our equipment is easy to use especially our outfitter tents. They are sturdy and you can choose the size tent you want for your group.  Tell us your sleeping arrangements so we can provide you with the correct number and size of tent(s).  A good rule of thumb is to choose a tent sized for one more person than will actually sleep in the tent. Camp is your home away from home.  We see it as our job to assure you a clean and comfortable home.

We have limited parking space and therefore charge an additional cost for parking if you are not getting one of our Outfitting Packages. If you wish to park at Voyageur while on your trip it is an additional $5 per day per vehicle.

Each guest is unique as is each of our canoes.  We have a variety of our preferred canoes for your special journey and will help you choose one which best suits your needs.The canoe you choose should be the one that is best for your trip. In order to pick the right canoe you’ll need to consider a number of things such as your route, type of trip, size of your group, amount of gear and level of experience.  

Kevlar canoes are fast, sleek and lightweight so they are great for trips that require you to portage long distances.  Aluminum and royalex canoes are nice to fish out of but are on the heavier side. If you’re not planning to portage or you’re super strong then an aluminum or royalex canoe is just fine. 

Feel free to contact us if you’re unsure of the best canoe for you, your group, your trip, or your route.  We will gladly share our experiences with you and since we’re located on the water you can try them out before you depart for the BWCAW.

All of our canoe rentals include paddles and life vests.   We outfit to all entry points on the Gunflint Trail and provide free transportation to most. 

You can upgrade to a kevlar canoe if you have purchased a  Standard Expedition Package which comes with either a Royalex Canoe or Alumacraft Canoe.  The cost is $22 per day.
