Voyageur Canoe Outfitters, near the end of the Gunflint Trail on Lake Saganaga, is a great place to get all your equipment for your trip. They are located right on Lake Saganaga and Seagull Lake and they provide super service. Further, they are very personable, helpful and relaxed, especially dealing with campers like me who might be a little worried... More

My new wife and I went up to the Boundary Waters after our wedding in late September. From the initial contract to make reservations through the end of our voyage, the team at Voyageur was extremely organized, helpful, pleasant, and full of excellent suggestions. The co-owner, Mike, tended to us himself and recommended some wonderful sections on the map in... More

I had the good fortune of discovering Voyager Canoe Outfitters through a friend who's been on several trips in the BWCAW. Being that I'm from Florida and never done anything like this before it was important I put myself in good hands. VCO had a welcoming family atmosphere and a wealth of knowledge about their products, what to expect and... More

What a wonderful experience of the BWCA through Voyageur Canoe Outfitters. We bought packages through Groupon for 3 days & 2 nights but with the first night stay in the bunk house (our own private bunk house for the four of us!), it was really more like 3 days & 3 nights.

Voyager Canoe Outfitters is a top class outfitter. I have used VCO a handful of times and have never left without a smile on my face (even though I am heading back). If your looking to adventure the BWCA, I would strongly recommend contacting this outfitter.

Voyageur is a great outfitter. They reserved our permit, had a bunkhouse ready upon arrival, served us a delicious pancake breakfast in the morning, and got our group on the water and paddling right away. Mike and Sue Prom and the Voyageur crew provided an excellent Boundary Waters experience!
