Explorer Route Expedition Special

You will paddle 50 to 60 miles through the Boundary Waters in the United States, with an option to cross the International Border into Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada.

Paddling the 1689 route of  Jacques de Noyon.

Jacques de Noyon is the first known European to visit the Boundary Waters region. In 1688, at the age of 20, de Noyon and three others traveled from the Montreal area to present-day Thunder Bay, Ontario on Lake Superior. From there his group followed the Indigenous canoe route, past pictographs that were some 700 years old at that time, and through what is now Quetico Provincial Park.   The following summer de Noyon returned to Lake Superior, along what is now the United States-Canada border, and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Your crew will follow parts of this same route.  But unlike de Noyon, we have designed this trip to be at a comfortable pace for today’s teens.  There will be time to fish and explore while comfortably traveling 50 miles or more depending on your plans and ability.
