A fly in canoe trip can be the “frosting on the cake”. These trips depart from the U.S. Customs dock in Ely which is just three minutes from our outfitting headquarters. After departing from the seaplane base you will be flying over some of the most spectacular scenery in the Quetico, and you will get a “bird’s-eye view” of the canoe country from the air.
We offer a number of package trips designed to accommodate your specific wishes. We have both fly-in/fly-out canoe trips and fly-in/paddle-out trips. We also offer a fly-in/base camp trip to Three-Mile Lake for people that don’t want to travel and portage.
Our four favorite Quetico Provincial Park fly in canoe trip points are:
Each of these four fly in canoe trip entry points is unique in its own way.
These routes are rated on a scale of (1-10) 1 being least and 10 being most, according to several frequently requested criteria. The ranking will be shown using the following symbols and key:
Beaverhouse Lake, located in the far northwest corner of Quetico Park, provides access to some of the most remote lakes in the Park and is an ideal starting point for a semi-circular trip which ends at Lac La Croix.
Lac La Croix is one of the most scenic lakes in Quetico, and affords you the opportunity to see Curtain Falls, Rebecca Falls, the Pictographs on the cliffs at the eastern end of Lac La Croix, and Warrior Hill.
Three Mile Lake, which is really a part of the Namakan River, and flows from Lac La Croix into Namakan Lake, provides access to Wolseley Lake ? home to some of the biggest Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike in Quetico. Also, you are allowed to use a boat and motor if you are camped on Three Mile Lake.
