Canadian Waters Canoe Trips In Ely, Minnesota
Escape from the daily grind in a canoe. Founded in 1964, Canadia Waters of Ely, Minnesota, has guided countless visitors into the 2 million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Find out for yourself why people keep coming back to them year after year.
Between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods, there is a vast patchwork of smaller lakes and streams. This was the famous highway of the Voyageurs, fur company employees who transported goods, trappers, and traders to and from trading posts. In the heart of this wilderness lies the United States’ Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) and Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park. Together they form an area of more than 2 million acres known as the Boundary Waters Canoe Country.
These acres have been designated as “primitive wilderness,” set aside to be preserved in all their primeval beauty. The Wilderness of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is the same today as it was in the heyday of the Voyageurs and when the Ojibway tribe hunted caribou here. It remains virtually unchanged since the glaciers of the Ice Age carved the patterns of these rockbound lakes.
The Boundary Waters’ moods change as you travel. Experience the laughing streams and springs to the thundering roar of the Split Rock Falls, the wild booming of Chatterton Falls to the cathedral calm of lakes like Cairn and Keats and so much more. If you’re looking for seclusion, you will find it here away from the more traveled routes.
BWCAW is home to more than 50 species of animals. Native animals include beavers, minks, deer, moose, lynx, black bears, bobcats, and timberwolf. Over 200 species of birds inhabit the BWCAW, including the bald eagle, loon, blue heron, osprey and many more. There are no poisonous snakes here.
The lakes and streams of BWCAW host a wide variety of fish species. Anglers can catch bass, lake trout, walleye, northern pike and panfish.
Quetico Provincial Park is a vast wilderness area across the Canadian border in Ontario. It is world famous for its pristine beauty, virgin pine forests and rocky shores.
