Quetico Park Fly-In Canoe Trips



Float Plane

Voyageur Canoe Outfitters has the perfect location for a fly-in trip into the Quetico Park located in Ontario, Canada. We can provide everything you need for a fly-in fishing or camping adventure of a lifetime.

A fly-in canoe trip is an excellent way for advanced canoe campers to paddle the vast wilderness of the Quetico Park. A float plane will drop you off on the edge of the Quetico and then you will paddle your way back through the Quetico Park and Minnesota's Boundary Waters where you may be picked up by our towboat service and brought back to Voyageur Canoe Outfitters.




Voyageur's Featured Trip: Clay Lake (Mack 23) to Saganaga Lake

This trip starts out with a tow boat ride from Voyageur Canoe Outfitters to the middle of Saganaga Lake to meet the Canadian flight service. There you load and take off for Clay Lake, which is 30 minutes North. After unloading on Clay you'll paddle west, winding yourself through the Greenwood Creek and the Wawiag River. This leads you to the magnificent Kawnipi Lake. After Kawnipi Lake comes a series of waterfalls known as the Falls Chain.  The Saganagons is next and then Silver Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the Park. Next, paddle across Cache Bay but do not forget to see the Indian pictographs! During your final stretch, paddle around Cache Point to Hook Island where we will meet you with a towboat. This trip is a minimum of 24 hours of paddling (three, eight-hour days). We recommend at least a 5 day trip or longer to enjoy the scenery and fishing.


2013 Completely Outfitted Fly In Package Rates (Per Person) - Clay Lake Trip

This trip includes everything our Standard Expedition Package does plus a one way flight, round trip towboat service, overnight camping fees, and Quetico permit reservation fee. This trip does not include your fishing licenses and Remote Access Border Crossing Permit (RABC). The licenses can be purchased near here at a Canadian resort and we have the RABC application online. We also have applications we can send you in the mail if you like.
