Herbert Hoover won America’s hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a canoe in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today’s Groupon: for $159, you get a completely outfitted four-day canoe expedition at the Boundary Waters Canoe Area from Voyageur Canoe Outfitters (up to a $318 value). The expedition includes:

  • Four-day, three-night camp stay
  • Three-day canoe rental; kayaks available upon request
  • All necessary camp equipment
  • Full, customizable menu of food
  • Trip-planning session <p>

Featured in the New York Times and Star Tribune, Voyageur Canoe Outfitters arranges leisurely maritime explorations of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and provides all necessary camping equipment and trip planning. Adventurers take up residence in a private bunkhouse the night before departure and fortify for their journey with a hot pancake breakfast and nickname-brainstorming session the morning of the trip. Knowledgeable staff members assist in planning routes and prep campers during a pretrip session, in which paddlers get to know their Alumacraft canoes and learn basic safety techniques. Up to nine Groupon holders can join together for a paddling jaunt, taking advantage of fantastic fishing and baseball games against rogue bands of Mounties.

Outfitting packages include full equipment that shelters campers inside an Alps mountaineering tent and orchestrates restful nights atop Thermarest pads and insulated sleeping bags. Cooking equipment and stove fuel let outdoor chefs turn ingredients into stomach-sating meals, and a camp shovel lets diners turn fire rings into giant cereal bowls.

BWCA fees are not included in today’s Groupon.

Voyageur Canoe Outfitters

While exploring the Gunflint trail, one often hears the trickle of the Boundary Waters, the echoes of wolves howling, and the soothing absence of city noise. As owners and operators of Voyageur Canoe Outfitters, Mike and Sue Prom have a deep understanding of the land and are proud to call the area home. The Prom family provides adventurers with gear and supplies for exploring nearby trails, waterways, and orbiting moons. The outfitter also organizes complete trip packages to keep groups equipped when paddling along the BWCA or camping in Quetico Park. In 2010, Gustave Axelson of the New York Times followed Mr. Prom on an ice-fishing voyage through Quetico, fondly recalling the rugged outdoorsman's ability to rig fishing lines, keep the tent stove roaring, and prepare fresh lake trout with a bit of maple syrup into a dinner that was "three-star quality and joyous as a wedding feast."

The staff was awesome! They were very friendly and helpful. It was my first time in the BWCA and their positive energy/knowledge made me even more excited. Their bunkhouse, showers, and equipment were all in great condition! We will be back and will recommend them to anyone who is interested.
