Quetico & BWCA Fly-In Trips

If you have come to get away from it all, avoid the crowds, then treat yourself to some of the Quetico’s best kept secrets! Take a Quetico or Boundary Waters Fly-In Canoe Trip arranged by Moose Track Adventures Outfitters and fly out to remote Quetico/BWCA backcountry. There you will be able to start your trip at various locations and get you into the wilderness quickly as well as cast a line for trout, walleye and northern pike.

We’ve been outfitting our Quetico and Boundary Waters fly-in customers with the best in ultra-lightweight gear & canoes and are positive it will be one of the highlights of your wilderness experience. The specialized small bush planes fitted with floats can take off and land on several lakes on the peripheral of the Quetico and providing you several options to choose from. You can either paddle out, tow boat out or fly out and return your trip back to our base. From discussing the best entry point that would suite the interests of your group, to reserving the required permits, to trip routing – we can assist you in every step of the way! Below is an example of all of the fly-in destinations from Ely, MN with our Deluxe Canoe Outfitting package and paddle out costs.
