BWCA Dog Sledding

In the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, dog sleds are the only way, besides skiing and snowshoeing, to gain access. What's there? Pristine snow. Nobody around for miles (access controlled by US Forest Service). No motors. True wilderness experience like no other.

Ice Fish by Dog Sled

The million-acre Boundary Waters Wilderness is famous for fishing. Each year, over 200,000 people visit in the summer, traveling along the more than 1500 miles of canoe routes. Why? Not only the natural beauty but the great fishing. Walleye, Northern, Lake Trout. And good size!
