About The Event



Sunday, August 15

We will leave Maineville at 6:30 a.m. and drive to Ely, Minnesota, spending the night in the Outfitter Camp's hostel.  You have the option to secure airline reservations and transportation from the Duluth or Minneapolis airports if you prefer this to the 14 hour car trip.

Monday, August 16 - Friday, August 20

We will be canoeing through lakes and rivers with breathtaking beauty, while hiking, exploring and fishing by day, and having campfires, conversation and camaraderie by night.  We intend to have a central campsite, chosen the first day out. 

Friday, August 20

We will be picked up by the Outfitter at the end of the day and will spend the night at the Outfitter Camp's hostel again, sharing stories of our adventures.

Saturday, August 21

We will depart Ely early in the morning for the drive back to Maineville.  Those who have flown in will leave the hostel at the appropriate time to return their rental car and catch their return flight.  It is possible that there may be some interest in sharing a rental car with other men.

Your 7 day adventure into the wild will be $695.  This includes transportation, all gear (Kevlar canoes and top of the line camping gear), and meals between drop off on 8/16 to pickup on 8/20.  You are responsible for clothing, airline and car reservations (if preferred), and fishing gear (optional).  Fishing Licenses are available for purchase in Ely.

Registration opens in June 1, 2021 and closes Friday, July 30th.  Payments made by check are $685.00.  Email us for instructions to register and pay this way.
