Make your canoe trip the BEST it can be with Ely Outdoors Company!   

Don't just dream about catching that monster Northern Pike or seeing that Bull Moose...make that dream a reality.  Ely Outdoors Company specializes in custom guided canoe trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Superior National Forest.



Let our guides share their knowledge of the Boundary Waters, camping and fishing techniques, and lake navigation with you.  Your guide assists with the camp chores, portaging, and gathering firewood.  Your trip will be designed to meet your expectations and includes complete outfitting, food supplies, and a professional guide.  So, whether you want to travel 2 miles or 80 miles into the wilderness, we'll set it up for you!

A guide can greatly enhance your success in catching all the different fish species.  Paying attention to seasonal trends and current conditions, a guide is able to move to areas where the fish are located.  In addition, a guide is able to interpret current weather patterns and adjust accordingly which tackle, lures, and fishing techniques should be used.
