Voyageur outfitters made this marvelous adventure possible for foreign novices like us. The briefing was extremely effective: short, to the point and comprehensive. The gear was adequate and easy to use. Place was well organised for COVID. As to the trip in the Boundary Waters itself - there are no words to describe how magical that is. (tip: buy an extra map at VCO - always more fun trying to find your way with two)
Thank you VCO for help with a great trip! You were very responsive to our need to make changes and to tailor our trip to our wishes. We even got to stay in the Loon bunkhouse again. Year number 4 for our crazy group at VCO. The Laughing Loons.
I have been going to the BWCA since 1985 and this was the best service I have ever had. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Everything was immaculate. I am 75 and took the tow in and out. Could not think of anything that would have made this a better trip.
Husband and I stayed in the Black Bear cabin for four nights. Comfortable and secluded. Be aware that the cabin is across the narrow river and up a steep path. The cabin is well equipped. Lovely wildlife, quiet and peaceful. The staff are top notch. Knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Being towards the end of the Gunflint Trail, the location is rather isolated, so bring your supplies. We had an excellent stay. Extremely happy with our decision to go with this outfitter.
This was our second year with VCO for a six person father-son BWCA trip. We have had great experiences both years, and have relied heavily on them for advice on routes, campsites, and planning. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
