Canoe Country consists of the BWCA-Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northeastern Minnesota (in green) and the Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario, Canada (in tan). More than two million acres of International border lakes that are interconnect by portages, and canoe trails, which Voyageurs crossed hundreds of years ago. Today, "you" the modern day Voyageur, can paddle one of the most incredible places. The pristine lakes and spectacular sunsets will bring you back every year. Opportunities also exist for hiking, kayaking, fine freshwater fishing, winter camping, dogsledding, cross country skiing, or snowshoeing. Most importantly this place will help us realize that we must preserve this phenomenal resource of "Wilderness." Entry points into the BWCA are established to help regulate the flow of visitors and increase your solitude experience. How much do permits cost?

All visitors to Canada who enter "remotely," without crossing into Canada at a Border Crossing Station must be in possession of a Remote Border Crossing Permit(RABC,) the permit is easy to get. Detailed instruction and the application can be found at:

See Native American pictographs in the BWCA and Quetico Park.
