We’ve had guests of all shapes and sizes the past couple of weeks at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters. Some with four legs but most with two. It’s fun to see what guests enjoy doing when they stay with us at the end of the Gunflint Trail.
It might be obvious but the favorite activity of our guests is paddling. Either on the Seagull River or taking day trips into the Boundary Waters it doesn’t really matter, they just like to paddle. Some with their canoes and others with kayaks either fishing or not.
The second most popular thing to do is to go fishing. Some people never even leave the dock because they can catch smallmouth bass, northern pike and walleye right from the dock this time of the year. There are guests who bring their own boats and others who rent 16 foot boats from us to take out onto Saganaga Lake. Fishing isn’t just about catching fish either, it involves exploring the bays, hiking to the tops of vistas and looking for wildlife and berries.
Then there is visiting Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center. They have a new building dedicated to kids and plenty of hiking trails for all levels and abilities. Hiking is another favorite pastime of our guests as well as swimming, relaxing in a hammock, reading and just enjoying the fresh air.
What do our guests like the most about vacationing at Voyageur? Our awesome crew that is here to take care of their every need during their stay.
