2017 Fly-in Canoe Trip Complete Outfitting Package Pricing

boundary waters fly-inNorth Country provides Fly-in / Fly-out Canoe Trip and Fly-in / Paddle out Canoe Trip options for groups interested in very serious fishing or doing more extensive traveling.  Our fly-in canoe trips start at five days.  We also offer off-peak, mid-week and youth group discounts.

You will leave directly from Ely, (or from Crane Lake if weather dictates) and fly to Lac La Croix in Quetico Park, Ontario. Upon receiving your Park Permit and fishing licenses, Beaverhouse parties paddle from the Ranger Station.  La Croix parties then boat to their Entry Point (Maligne River, McAree Lake, or Bottle Rapids).  Do keep in mind that passports are now required for traveling outside of the United States.

ALL OF OUR FLY-IN PACKAGES FEATURE KEVLAR CANOES

Due to the number of fly-in trips we outfit, we keep canoes in Canada at the floatplane base.  Therefore, we do not have to use  “nesting canoes” which require the customer to reassemble upon landing.  No lost tools; no missing parts, no lost time.

FLY-IN / PADDLE – OUT TRIPS

At the end of the trip, Paddle-Out parties return to a U.S.-side Boundary Waters pick-up point, and are picked up by van (included in package rate). Due to the canoe travel distances between the border and a van pick-up location, we highly recommend spending the last evening on the U.S. side. This requires a Boundary Waters travel permit and associated camping fees. A Minnesota fishing license would also be required for those who want to fish the last day of the trip.

FLY-IN / FLY-OUT TRIPS

This is, by far, our more popular fly-in option. The remote experience afforded by flying-in is maximized by spending less time with mandatory paddling. At the end of your trip, Fly-Out parties are picked-up and flown directly back to Ely, or if precluded by weather, returned to Crane Lake. There is no need for an additional US-side permit or a Minnesota fishing license.

Additional Options

Our fly-in aircraft are de Havilland Beaver Float Planes. The optimum seating is for 4 passengers; this is reflected in our published pricing. We can accommodate other size parties using several options. Please phone us toll-free, at 800-552-5581, to discuss your party configurations, along with transportation alternatives.

Unlike most US-based outfitters, North Country keeps a cache of canoes in Canada to facilitate our fly-in trips.  Due to our normal logistical demands, all of these canoes are 2-person Kevlar models (for our Silver +, and Gold complete packages).  We can work with groups having an odd number of participants, but again, we need to discuss your specific needs and trip dates.

Note:  We do not transport privately owned customer canoes or kayaks.
