It's not too late there's still time for a Voyageur Canoe Outfitter Vacation on the Gunflint Trail this Fall. Whether you want to paddle and camp or relax in a cabin we want you to visit us this Fall.There's always something to do on the Gunflint Trail no matter what season it is. My favorite activity is to explore the many hiking trails both inside and outside of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. There are hikes of all distances along the Gunflint Trail and at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters we can help you plan the right one for you. We've hiked the trails and know how difficult or how easy they are and are glad to share that information with you. The hiking is good up until around Christmas when the hiking boots are replaced with snowshoes. It's another world out there when the leaves are off of the trees and you can see through the normally hidden woods. I've rarely had to share a hiking trail on the Gunflint Trail except with four legged creatures.
There's no better place to relax and get away from it all than at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters. There are no telephones or televisions in the cabins to distract you and in the silence you can completely unwind. Cell phones don't work on the Gunflint Trail and only if you must will we allow you to check your e-mail and there's no surfing the web on our limited internet access.
Sitting on the deck, lying on the dock or finding a nice rock to stretch out on you're sure to find the peaceful surroundings comforting. There aren't any bugs to bother you and there are very few people on the Gunflint Trail in late October and November.
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center will be open until mid-October. It's an incredible museum that people have really enjoyed visiting since it opened on the 4th of July. Hours can be spent watching the films, reading the books and hiking the trails.
Canoe trips can be experienced well into the fall. When the visitor numbers dwindle the wilderness experience is doubled. Without the assurance of another group around the bend fall paddlers must be cautious and knowledgeable about cold weather conditions and safety.
In October boat and motor camping can be enjoyed on Saganaga Lake. Set up a base camp for fishing or for just camping in the wilderness. You can bring along quite a bit of equipment when you've got a boat to haul it around with. If you're interested in renting a canvas tent and stove to stay warm then let us know, we can set you up for your ultimate comfort while camping.
An afternoon paddle and watching the sunset on Saganaga are just a couple of the things you can experience while vacationing at Voyageur this Fall. Come see how wonderful it is for yourself.
Mention this blog and ask for a special lodging package rate for new bookings in October and November. You'll be glad you did.
