Women in the Woods

     Are you looking for a way to be nice to the woman you love this summer?  How about a Mother’s Day Gift?  A Gift Certificate for a Women in the Woods Package with Voyageur Canoe Outfitters would be a perfect present for any woman in your life.

     There isn’t anything else like an all female trip into the canoe country wilderness.  It’s an awesome opportunity and every woman should have the chance to experience it.  The self-confidence gained and the sense of accomplishment a woman feels after a wilderness canoe trip is like no other.  Women walk away with a sense of pride for being able to survive in the woods without a male companion.

  Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with paddling with men, it’s just a different experience.  Women act differently when they are around men versus all females.  Some women don’t like to take instruction from a man, especially if that man happens to be her husband.  Some men don’t like to sit in the front of a canoe while a woman steers in back or is solely responsible for navigating with a map.  It’s difficult for some men to sit patiently while a woman struggles to lift a canoe, start a fire, or set up a tent.  I think you understand what a difference it makes when paddling with a group of women only.

     We invite you to check out our website to find out more information about the Women’s Trips we offer.  Each trip has a leader that travels with the group but everyone in the group is expected to participate in all aspects of the canoe camping adventure.  This is not a "sit at the end of the portage and wait for your Sherpa to carry all of your gear across" type of  a trip.  This is a "get your hands dirty, get real and get something out of it trip women’s only adventure in the canoe country wilderness."
