What You'll Get
Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get a four-day, three-night canoe trip with all supplies included to the Boundary Waters canoe area wilderness from Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters, located on the Gunflint Trail north of Grand Marais (up to a $380 value). The trip includes two optional nights at Gunflint's bunkhouse, one before and one after the four-day canoe excursion.
For more than 40 years, the adventure squad at Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters has adeptly supplied intrepid backpackers, knapsackers, and tote-toters with canoe-trip essentials for forays through the wilds of northern Minnesota. Thrill-hungry naturalists commence expeditions in the wee hours of the morning, with the option to spend the preceding night in Gunflint’s bunkhouse dreaming of chocolate rivers and pinecone tax exemptions.
Adventurers will embark on a four-day, three-night canoe trip routed through the Boundary Waters where canoers can nuzzle the verdant bosom of Mother Nature along numerous routes graded from easy to challenging. The rugged, durable Royalex canoes safely slide paddlers across the slick water like jet-skiing squirrels as rowers take in sights along the beginner-friendly Caribou Lake or the more demanding Frost River. At the end of the trip, escapade-fulfilled travelers may again enjoy a placid slumber at Gunflint’s bunkhouse.
Gunflint supplies its customers with all required gear, including sleeping bags, shelter, lightweight packs, cooking kits, and ghost repellent. Guests have the ability to choose their own food supply from a variety of menu options such as oatmeal, walleye filets, bacon-wrapped filet mignon with fresh mushrooms, s’mores, and fruit cobbler. A $6 permit fee per group of up to nine people and a $16 user fee per person 18 and older ($8 per person 17 and younger) are not included with this Groupon.

About Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters
Since 1928, the Kerfoot family has lived on the shores of Gunflint Lake, preserving the natural landscape while outfitting travelers with camping and canoeing necessities. With equipment packages and organized trips, they help visitors explore the 1,000,000-acre natural-wilderness system and its assortment of more than 1,000 clearwater lakes. Cabins with bunk beds and showers dot the campgrounds, placing visitors in the midst of moose, deer, beavers, eagles, and Tigger. Eight ziplines reach high above the tree canopy, allowing guests to soar past 300-year-old white-pine trees. The camp's location also provides an opportunity to view the northern lights in the clear night sky.
