About The Event

Have you always wanted to take a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota? We get it! The BWCA spans over a million acres of glaciated bedrock, lush pine forests, and thousands of island-dotted pristine lakes just south of the Canadian border. Here, wilderness travelers find solitude, adventure, exceptional fishing, and a special connection with nature.

Let True North Expeditions take on the daunting task of planning a canoeing trip to the Boundary Waters for you. No experience is needed, and if this is your first time on a canoe trip, you’ve found the right place. Our friendly staff will walk you through every step of the way so that you can enjoy the rejuvenating spirit of the outdoors in the BWCA. Sign up with friends, or by yourself. Either way, we guarantee you’ll leave the trip with a group of like-minded friends.
