The Destination
Located within the Superior National Forest of northeast Minnesota, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness straddles the border between the United States and Canada. Here, moose, beavers, and bobcats roam a million acres of pine-filled boreal forests and leafy deciduous woodlands. When it comes to recreation, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing attract winter sports enthusiasts, while the region opens its waterways and trails to canoeing, camping, boating, hiking, and fishing in the clear, cool lakeside air.

The Digs
A corridor into the crystal lakes of Boundary Waters, the Gunflint Trail winds alongside hundreds of rocky shorelines and shaded pine groves. Located 43 miles up this scenic stretch, you'll find Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters. Nearly 50 distinct canoe routes cut through this wilderness—one for every skill level. Rustic yet comfortable campsites along the BWCA come equipped with a fire grate and a latrine, so you can pitch your tent and get cooking as soon you pull in your paddles from your self-guided canoe trip.

  • "Amazing place to go and spend time with the family! Gunflint had great food, fantastic hiking trails, and well thought-out details."

  • "We all had a wonderful time and started to plan our next trip before we had even checked out!"
