We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone we came into contact with at Voyageurs and especially Jay, thank you Jay. Neither of us have used outfitters before and had no idea what to expect. We arrived late after business hours, it was dark and we weren’t sure what we were doing, earlier in the day however we placed a call to check in and told them we would be late.
When we arrived, our bunkhouse had a placard with our name on it that said welcome, when we stepped inside it was very clean, and the staff had placed our sleeping bags inside for us. All we had to do after our long journey to Voyageurs was to slide inside of our bags and fall asleep.
In the morning we a wonderful breakfast before checking in at the counter, then Jay took us to processing where he explained AND asked questions to ensure that we knew what the plan was, what to expect of our time and the equipment they provided us. He was gracious and informative in giving us detailed information on different campsites throughout the area, and he was spot on.
We got to the dock where our equipment and canoe was waiting for us and hopped in and paddled away. We couldn’t have enjoyed our trip any more than we did; breathtaking, incredible, moving and surreal are only a few words we can think of to describe our experience in the boundary waters and with Voyageurs.
Upon our arrival back at Voyageurs at the unfortunate end of our trip our car was waiting at the dock for us, we gathered our things and said goodbye and thank you and were on our way home only too soon.
Thank you so very much for a really unbelievable experience, we couldn’t have asked for anything more and Voyageurs has secured a special place in our memories.
