Howling with the Wolves HOP

August 11, 2018 - August 16, 2018

Limited space is available.

Location: Boundary Waters Canoe Area - Superior National Forest, MN

Enjoy an amazing wilderness experience beyond what you can ever imagine! Escapees has designed a special package just for you. No RVs are needed for this HOP, as we go Howling with the Wolves!

Minnesota is known as the gateway to the legendary wilderness Boundary Waters Canoe Area, and the beautiful lakes are teaming with bass, walleye and pike, just to name a few.

The BWCA is part of the Superior National Forest, in Minnesota, along the Canadian border, which makes for one of the greatest in outdoor adventures. The multitude of lakes and green lush pine forests allows for the abundance of wildlife: birds, game, fish and wildflowers, and the best way to explore this area is by canoe. So, you’ll want to remember to bring your binoculars!

To kick off this incredible adventure, is a night’s stay in the beautiful, rustic cottages located on the “base camp” premises. The next morning, enjoy a delightful breakfast; afterward, you will canoe to the campground that will
be called home for the next three nights.

While camping, you can enjoy hiking, fishing, birding, stargazing, campfires, wildlife viewing, photography and canoe paddling, on this adventure in the Boundary Waters wilderness preserve.

Don’t worry if you’re a novice at camping or canoeing, because you will have an “Expert Wilderness Guide” and the comfort and convenience of the best camping amenities available.

So, join us to learn all about the wild and mysterious timber wolf and watch for the chance to howl with the wolves!
