Guess what’s just around the corner? WWD Winter Camping season! Yes, we’re excited to kick it into winter mode in Ely, MN. Fall colors are brilliant and the temperatures keep dropping. I think we can smell a hint of snow in the air already! Contact us soon to satisfy your spirit of adventure in any season. 

Aaaaah…WINTER! We couldn’t be more excited to share the unique solitude and beauty it brings to the Boundary Waters! Star-filled nights with moon-shadows on fresh snow. Crisp winter sunlight beaming down countless diamonds on the snow-covered trails ahead. Experience warm, cozy camping with Snowtrekker tents and portable wood stoves. Trek by traditional snowshoe or back-country ‘cross ski.’ Pull your gear load by Black River toboggan as you glide over snow-covered lakes and wooded trails. Embrace the season! Contact Us to discuss a trip. It’s never too early to begin planning your next great adventure…winter (or summer).
