Boat & Motor Trips

For those who would like the convenience of exploring the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness by Boat and Motor, Wilderness Outfitters has a trip for you.

Our professional guides can make your Boat and Motor trip in the BWCAW a trip of a lifetime. Of the more than 1700 lakes contained in the BWCAW only 8 lakes allow motorized traffic.
