Boundary Water Canoe Outfitters Ely MN

Ely is one of the major hubs of the Boundary Waters. And as a result, Canoe Trip Outfitters in Ely are numerous. However, Moose Track Adventures can confidently say that our BWCA Outfitters operate on an entirely different level. These are the stomping grounds of Jim, one of the owners and operators of Moose Track Adventures. His 10 plus years of experience as a guide, combined with his own canoeing passion and Boundary Water Canoe Area (BWCA) and Quetico Provincial Park exploring, allows Moose Track Adventures to operate on a level above the rest.

Ensure You’re Outfitted With Quality Gear

Our focus, as an Ely BWCA Outfitter Company, is not only to provide all the equipment, food and camping gear needed for your stay in the Boundary Waters, but also to take careful consideration of the condition and quality of the gear that you will depend on to get through your adventure. With a Boundary Waters passion ourselves, we understand how much the gear and equipment you take with has an impact on your wilderness experience. That is why we only supply our campers with brand name, high-quality top performance gear to ensure you have the reliability you need when when venturing out into nature. We choose our equipment and gear based on performance, ease of use, durability and comfort. We are known for our quality outfitting gear and switch all of our equipment out every three years – at least – or when we feel it is no longer in acceptable condition.
