Our first trip off the Gunflint trail and using Voyaguer outfitters. They were very easy to do business with from getting our Quetico permits right through our trip. The tow drivers were friendly and everyone we dealt with were great. Would definitely use them again.

My girlfriends and I have used Voyageur for three trips into the BWCA. Staying in the bunkhouse the night before we head out ensures we get an early start and saves $$. The staff are always friendly and the gear we rent is in good condition and has always worked well! Highly recommend.

Used Voyageur Canoe outfitters for canoe and duluth pack rental. Our entry point was 45 minutes back down the Gunflint. They were very accommodating and when we came out of the lake at the end of the trip we just left our canoe at the launch and they came and picked it up later, so we did not have to...

This is a very dialed operation. I have been canoeing Quetico for 33 years, and this year was the first time I entered through Cache Bay. I found Voyaguer on the internet, and couldn't really separate them except by price--they were a tiny bit cheaper than their competitors in that location. Since I was only renting canoes, going with a...

I met Mike and Sue at The Des Moines Sport and Vacation Show when they were first starting their outfitting business. However, in talking to them, it was not a business but a passion. That passion has continued over the many years. They have improved their grounds, seem to always hire energetic and personable help, and have always gone the...

Our group of 8 used VCO (Voyageur Canoe Outfitters)for a complete outfitted adventure. Being this was my first trip to the BWCA I was very impressed with the whole process of informing us before we started paddling. The staff is very patient, organized and efficient. The equipment provided was clean and in good shape to make us all comfortable in...

The staff is very professional and committed to making sure your trip exceeds your expectations. All of their gear was high quality. If you are going to the Boundary Waters, do not roll the dice. It's a bucket list trip. Stop looking. Just book with Voyageur.

We wanted to spend the night before our Boundary Waters trip closer to the entry point. In the past, we have stayed in a motel on the North Shore and then had to drive a ways to the entry point in the morning. We discovered that Voyageur Canoe Outfitters has bunkhouses available for a very reasonable price. There are several...

My wife and I were blown away but the generous hospitality provided our 3-day visit to VCO. We booked a room attached to the main lodge and basically lounged for the entire stay. We paddled, we fished, we did yoga on the dock (the wife did... I tried), and we went for a nice bike ride. Being totally unplugged and...
