Women in the Wilderness Boundary Waters Canoe Trip

2021 Dates Pending

all-women bwca canoe tripIf you're a woman intrigued by the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, this is your chance to experience the adventure. Whether this is your first time in a canoe or you'd like to improve your wilderness skills as an experienced paddler, the only requirement is that you want to have fun while adventuring with other bold ladies! This four-day fully outfitted and guided canoe trip is open to all women. You'll be geared up with all the best canoeing and camping equipment, including extra thick Therm-a-rest sleeping pads for a good night's sleep and comfy trail chairs for lounging at camp.

During four days on the water, expect days of both travel and base-camping. On an optional layover day, we will rest, relax, explore and, if you'd like, fish. Each day will bring new experiences and sights, that could include waterfalls, wildlife, towering old growth white pines, and beautiful Northwoods surroundings. Sign up by yourself, or bring along a friend, too. We look forward to heading out into these beautiful woods with you!
