Make your BWCA reservations today.  Permits are required to enter the Boundary Waters Canoe Area wilderness and Quetico.  Always feel free to give us a call or send us an email to talk about your trip. We can advise you on just about everything, giving you straight advice to ensure that your trip meets your expectations.

Early BWCA Reservations are Best

Ideally, you should make Boundary Waters Canoe Area reservations with us in late fall or early winter to increase the chance of receiving the access permit you want on the dates you want. Remember that all accessing the BWCA and Quetico require a permit and require a Superior National Forest  reservation fee.  The BWCA and Quetico limit permits per day. Motorized Day Permits are also available.
