Cross Quetico Lakes Tour
The Quetico Park is Canada’s equivalent of the Boundary Waters in Minnesota. Wilderness lakes interconnected with portages provide the perfect place for paddling or cross-country skiing. The Cross Quetico Lakes Tour provides the opportunity for folks to experience the Quetico Park during the winter.
The Tour made the Cool List in Explore, Canada’s Outdoor Adventure Magazine. It would definitely be cool to ski the frozen lakes of the Quetico Park. Participants can choose from three routes through the Quetico including 35km, 45km or 55km. The only thing not cool about the Tour is the date, March 17, 2012, the same date as this year’s Mush for a Cure Sled Dog FUNdraiser.
While I may not be able to participate in the Cross Quetico Lake Tours I might be able to participate in another one of the events up north. The Beaten Path Nordic Club is responsible for holding the Cross Quetico Lakes Tour and promotes other ski events in the winter. They also take care of over 75km of trails in the Atikokan area.
The Boundary Waters and Quetico Park are gorgeous in the summer and just as beautiful in the winter. Come see for yourself this winter, we’d love to see you at Voyageur.
