I went on the Autumn Colors trip and had Tim Barton as the guide for our group and could not have been happier. The temps were in the 30's and we had snow for our paddle out but that didn't take away from the beauty...More
When I was growing up I spent most summers in Wisconsin's Northwoods and the one trip I took to the BWCA was special to me -- when you spend all day paddling and portaging your own a canoe as a 13 year old, it has...More
Piragis made our BWCA trip easy from beginning to end. They did an excellent job helping plan our route, pick out our supplies, and choose the right equipment. Adam and the whole team are great listeners and they gave us great advice on campsites and...More
From the first phone call, the outfitters made setting up a multi-day canoe trip super easy. They sent maps and walked me through some possible routes. When I arrived in Ely, Adam helped me to refine my gear and packing list so that I could...More
I picked up my BWCA permit and arranged a shuttle through Piragis. Followed their van, with my gear, loaded to EP 32, dropped my pickup off, and then rode with the shuttle to EP 35. Very friendly driver, great service!

4th trip with Piragis and it just keeps getting better. I need less gear (have bought my own), but the advice is priceless! Routes, things to avoid or day trip to see make all the difference. They truly want to help. Getting and returning gear...More
Have used them for canoe outfitters for years. This trip is just like all the rest. Outstanding service, high quality gear, knowledgeable service and very good gear shop for supplies, equipment, fishing licenses, etc.
Great place in Ely.
We took a group of kids from the Boys & Girls Club on their first trip to the Boundary Waters. We choose to be fully outfitted and were more than pleased with our experience, gear and service. They were very helpful in both planning our...More
Nice clothing, outdoor gear, jewelry, books - very good quality, but fairly expensive. I always find something to buy there.

Hi Tamara M,
Thanks for the question. My name is Adam, one of the outfitters at Piragis Northwoods Company. I don't believe any of the reviews here on Trip Advisor are specific to The Howling with the Wolves Trip. That said, the experience on the wolf trip will be similar to the other canoe camping experiences reviewed here and on our website -- it is just specifically focused on wolves and their habitat. You will spend a day at the International Wolf Center where you have the chance to learn about, and see, live wolves. While in the wilderness, the trip will take you into the wolf's natural habitat, where you will likely see wolf sign, maybe hear the howl of the wolf in the evening, and if you are very very lucky, you might even see one in the wild. In addition to learning about wolves, you will have the opportunity to explore the incredible Boundary Waters. I hope you can join us for the trip sometime!
