Fly-in Canoe Trip Complete Outfitting Package Pricing

fly in trips to Quetico

North Country provides Fly-in / Fly-out and Fly-in / Paddle out options for groups interested in very serious fishing ot doing more extensive traveling.  Our fly-in packages start at five days.  We also offer off-peak, mid-week and youth group discounts.

You will leave directly from our White Iron Lake base docks or from Crane Lake, MN and fly to Lac La Croixin Quetico Park, Ontario. Upon receiving your Park Permit and fishing licenses, Beaverhouse parties paddle from the Ranger Station.  La Croix parties then boat to their Entry Point (Maligne River, McAree Lake, or Bottle Rapids).

Because of the logistical considerations, rates must be based on a twp-person minimum and pre-positioned ultra-lightweight aluminum canoes (64#).

It is our practice with Gold Package Parties, however, to use 40-pound class Wenonah Kevlar canoes whenever possible (100% during 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 seasons - one miss in 2002 and 2004). A portion of these rates are subject to Ontario (PST) and Canadian (GST) sales taxes and fees. Persons flying into the United States by air may be subject to certain additional fees.  Keep in mind that passports are now required for traveling in Canada.

FLY-IN / PADDLE - OUT TRIPS

At the end of the trip, Paddle-Out parties return to a U.S.-side Boundary Waters pick-up point, and are picked up by van (included in package rate). Due to the canoe travel distances between the border and a van pick-up location, we highly recommend spending the last evening on the U.S. side. This requires a Boundary Waters travel permit and associated camping fees. A Minnesota fishing license would also be required for those who want to fish the last day of the trip.

FLY-IN / FLY-OUT TRIPS

This is, by far, our more popular fly-in option. The remote experience afforded by flying-in is maximized by spending less time with mandatory paddling. At the end of your trip, Fly-Out parties are picked-up and flown directly back to North Country's docks on White Iron Lake, or if precluded by weather, returned to Crane Lake. There is no need for an additional US-side permit or a Minnesota fishing license.
