Gliding along the water in a canoe or kayak is an ideal way to de-stress and connect with the natural world around you. Our guided Wilderness Canoeing on the Poplar River and our Lake Superior Kayaking Trips are the perfect way to experience the magic of paddling. Our experienced guides will provide you with all the equipment and instruction needed for a memorable and safe trip on the water.
Wilderness Canoeing: Our Wilderness Canoeing Experience on the Poplar River has become a guest and staff favorite. Along with your guide, we will shuttle you to the Poplar River in Lutsen, hike about a quarter of a mile to the canoes, and paddle two miles along the beautiful Poplar River. No past canoe experience is needed and children as young as five can participate. The trip is leisurely, scenic, and within the whole family’s capabilities.
Kayaking: Lake Superior offers one of the most incredible sea kayaking experiences available between the two coasts. Paddle along the scenic shoreline of Lake Superior with one of our expert kayak guides. You will see a sea cave and multiple waterfalls, not to mention the wildlife! Lake Superior could be calm like glass or have choppy waves, we will go regardless, (as long as we deem the conditions safe) in order to provide guests with a full Lake Superior experience. Our expert and certified guides will provide you with full instruction and equipment you need. Kayakers of all skill levels age 12 and up are welcome.
Our canoe and kayak trips are quite popular and tend to fill quickly. To reserve your spot, be sure you sign up in advance with Guest Services: 218-663-7296
