BWCAW Guided Canoe Trips for Women
Summer and Winter Wilderness Guided Camping Trips, X-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing Treks
Located in Ely, Minnesota, Women’s Wilderness Discovery provides year-round, fully-outfitted and guided Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) canoe camping, hike camping, day canoe & kayak treks, day hikes, and “warm tent” winter camping and/or quinzhee (build a snow hut) camping by snowshoe or ski trek, and day snowshoe hikes or cross-country ski treks especially for women.
We provide a safe, positive model for women and girls to enrich their lives through the wilderness experience and outdoor adventure. A fully outfitted/guided wilderness experience emphasizing teamwork can build confidence, strengthen courage, and cultivate leadership qualities in women and girls. Teaching respect for the land and the gear used in wilderness travel is inherent to the wilderness ethic “Leave No Trace.”
Trips can include other areas of the Superior National Forest outside of the BWCAW. Women’s Wilderness Discovery customizes trips for each group, discussing potential routes and making suggestions based on your group’s skill level.
We listen to your expectations and goals, and lend our expertise in planning your wilderness adventure. All BWCAW entry points are taken into consideration when planning client trips, based upon availability.
Want to “try out” the BWCAW for the day in a canoe, kayak, or on foot on a wilderness hiking trail? Perhaps a winter day trek by snowshoe or ski? We can discuss a date and sights you might like to see and experience. We’ll be happy to help craft a perfect day of exploring the woods and waters, lunch included. Our prices are inviting! Contact Women’s Wilderness Discovery to discuss the possibilities.
