"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books."

"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books."

Sir John Lubbock

School is in Session
When I head out into the wilderness I always learn something. It may just be something about myself but often it is much greater than that. Gazing at a wilderness lake, feeling a soft mist on your face and being enveloped in nature is a profound experience.  It's no wonder Sir John Lubbock said we can learn more from nature than we can from books.
Just don't tell my son Josh about this quote or he'll have even more ammunition for taking time away from school to walk trails looking for grouse or paddle lakes trying to catch fish. 
Sometimes it's difficult to take time away from work for a vacation. Think about a canoe camping trip as an educational experience for your children. It isn't just "camping" it's experiencing everything the wilderness has to offer. It's a time to get away from it all and open one's mind.
This year's paddling season may be over but that doesn't mean you can't experience the wilderness for a learning vacation. Come on up to Voyageur this fall or winter and hike or snowshoe the trails, cross-country ski on the frozen lake or just hang a hammock, bundle up and let the learning begin.

Weather and What Not

Fall has been a real treat this year as we've been blessed with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.  The wildlife has been making regular appearances at Voyageur including a bear in the outfitting building and a moose standing by our canoe pile.  The whiskey jacks are looking for handouts and entertaining the remaining Voyageur Crew.  The colors were beautiful and we went the entire season without any campfire restrictions. 
It was an amazing season of great guests with good stories to tell. We're busy preparing for winter at Voyageur. Equipment is getting a final cleaning and maintenance, canoes are being stored and boats are getting pulled from the lake in anticipation of ice. There's lots to do this time of the year but we're working on our schedule as visitors are few and far between.
As we think about equipment orders, remodeling, outfitting menu and more please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your experience with Voyageur even better.  We want to see you in 2015 so please let us know what we can do to ensure your visit.

Voyageur Crew

We loved our Voyageur Crew of 2014 and we know many of our guests did too. We had a hard-working, happy-go-lucky group of people and enjoyed all of them. 


We are so happy to still have Ryan around as he is great for the many remaining projects we have. We are super excited to have Mark, Hannah and Tony here for the winter. They will help with orders, answer the phone and hopefully take lots of reservations from all of you.


It won't be long and we'll be looking for crew members for the 2015 season. If you know of anyone who would be a good fit then tell them to give us a call.
