Physically challenging and fun. Accommodations were rustic but nice. Guides experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly. Great value for the price.


Excellent trip all around! Just a beautiful area to see and the trip was a good mix of activity and learning. Guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Be prepared to be active, as the description states. Good meals and accommodations! Our cabin was rustic and small but very clean, comfortable, and at a gorgeous spot. I would be happy to return!


We received "a taste" of Ely, Minnesota and the Boundary Waters. Both are special!! Canoeing and hiking were challenging, organized, beautiful, and FUN!! I am recommending that program to anyone who will listen!!


An outstanding wilderness experience. Beautiful setting. Wonderful leaders. Enjoyable field trips, canoeing and hiking, inspiration point. Very pleasant and unique. Save the boundary waters!


Correct your typos


Great introduction to canoeing in a beautiful setting.


Wonderful active week in the Woods and on the Water. Loved the Rustic cabins! The Leaders are outstanding - they live here and know this area inside and out. Knowledgeable Skilled Fun - heck of a team! If you are into maid service and dressing to the nines for dinner . . . this might not be your trip....


We experienced the true essence of the boundary waters. This is such an incredible place and by canoeing the lakes and hiking the trails all of us could truly understand why this area was set aside for preservation.


This is a delightful trip with a good balance between hiking and canoeing. The leaders were personable and well informed about the natural world around us. Hiking is not for anyone wanting to make time but it is great for people who want to spot and collect mushrooms and berries. There are lots of rocks and roots on the trails so one is obliged to go carefully. Well organized trip. Had a good time.
