Remote Access to Quetico Park

Great news for canoe campers who love to enter the Quetico Park through the end of the Gunflint Trail. Fabulous news for cabin owners on the Canadian side of Saganaga Lake. The Canadian Government is getting ready to start issuing Remote Area Border Crossing Permits once again. We at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to welcome back cabin owners and Quetico Park paddling enthusiasts, it’s been way too long.

We received communication explaining the new CANPASS process. Folks will need to have proof of vaccination in order to apply and they will need to fill out an ArriveCan application for each trip into Canada. We are hoping they will issue CANPASS permits in person at the border again but we haven’t heard the details or how quickly they will begin issuing them.

If you have been waiting for access to the Quetico Park through Cache Bay to open up, it looks like the waiting will soon be over. This opens access back up to the wonderful Falls Chain, Man Chain, Saganagons and beyond. I know where I’m going on my fall canoe trip, how about you?
