"We came seeking the solitude and the grace of the Boundary Waters. We got all this, plus so much more.

Thanks for the perfect package...so complete, great tasting food, A+ equipment, and a staff that was so friendly, knowledeable, and able to answer all our many questions during the trip routing.

Loved the scenery...even caught a few fish and they tasted amazing!

We will highly recommend your outfitting services, and will return."
