The Boundary Waters Canoe Area and the Quetico Park encompasses more than 1.5 million acres of land and includes at least 3,000 lakes.  This vast set aside wilderness creates a perfect opportunity to take a camping trip away from the stresses of everyday life.   If you are looking to experience a vacation filled with wildlife, serenity, and fantastic fishing, then a canoe trip into the BWCA or Quetico Park is exactly what you need. 


 Ely Outdoors Company is a small outfitter and guide service specializing in custom canoe trips.  Quality is our goal here!  We offer all the services of the larger outfitters, but offer a very personalized experience to your camping vacation.

We are also a Cooperator with the USDA Forest Service under the Superior National Forest.  We issue permits into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), part of the National Wilderness Preservation System.  To preserve the wilderness, visitors to the BWCAW must follow certain regulations.  Click on this link to learn more details.
