What Is Canoe Country?

Canoe Country consists of the BWCA – Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northeastern Minnesota and the Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario, Canada. In total, Canoe Country contains more than 2 million acres of Northwoods wilderness with a couple of thousand lakes. Portages connect these lakes and canoe trails. As a result, opportunities also exist for hiking, kayaking, and outstanding freshwater fishing. Voyageurs crossed these routes hundreds of years ago.
