A Guided All-Women BWCAW Canoe Trip

September 10 – 14, 2024

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 who identify as a woman. You’ll be geared up with all the best canoeing and camping equipment, including inflatable 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!

Your guides have backgrounds in guiding all-female groups and value the empowering nature of womens’ trips. Expect great storytellers with wonderful wilderness experiences that they are delighted to share.
