Join new friends on a wilderness experience this summer.
Paddle, portage and camp in America’s canoe country with other women who share your spirit of adventure.
Wilderness can present some challenges for women that are different from those encountered by men.Our goal on this adventure is to provide women with the knowledge and experience needed to feel comfortable in the wilderness.What women may lack in strength, they make up for in finesse and there are many secrets that can make portaging, paddling and setting up camp not only easier, but more fun!Our trained staff at Piragis Northwoods Company includes some of the most knowledgeable and trail savvy women in the outfitting business.The wilderness skills that our guides have acquired over the years are vital to making any adventure in the woods a success and before this trip is over you’ll be able to feel at home in the wild!
Working together, our group will encounter every activity in the Boundary Waters with a cohesiveness that can only happen when everyone participates.
After our first night in Ely, we’ll rise early and shuttle our canoes and gear to a nearby wilderness entry point.
Giving ourselves the opportunity to get a true taste of the wilderness may include sitings of waterfalls, pictographs and perhaps even floating bogs.
Our route will take us up close to the flora and fauna that make the Boundary Waters Canoe Area such an interesting place to travel.
Keeping with our theme, we’ll be adapting new wilderness skills every step of the way, while still having time for fun and relaxation along the way.
Our days will present opportunities for hiking, fishing if you like, and relaxation.
