Kayaking in Voyageurs National Park – NPS

Voyageurs National Park is 218,054 acres of water and woods and lies within the heart of the North American Continent. Here you can see and touch rocks half as old as the Earth, experience the life of a voyageur, immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a boreal forest, view the dark skies, or ply the interconnected water routes.

Leave your car behind and set out on the water highways of the North Woods.
