We are your Grand Marais outdoor adventure store. Whether you are a veteran wilderness enthusiast or brand new to the outdoor life, we are excited to help you out.

Overview

This overnight trip is excellent for kayakers looking for an extended wilderness experience without portaging. Saganaga is the largest and deepest lake in the BWCAW. Listen to loons, watch for north-woods wildlife, inhale the fresh scent of pine and explore the land of sky blue waters up close and personal. Contact us for a custom trip.
The trip includes all necessary food, gear, entry fees and transportation to and from the Saganaga landing. Guests are responsible for securing their own accommodations in or around Grand Marais the night prior to the trip, as well as the night after returning to Grand Marais, if desired. There is a mandatory gear check the night before we leave, so each guest needs to be available on that date.

Itinerary

Meeting Place

,

Day 1:

ravel from Stone Harbor to the Sag landing (we have coffee and donuts for the drive). Your guide provides a preliminary paddling lesson for anyone who needs it and then you are off! This is a light paddling day, which gives you time to set up camp north of Sag Corridor.

Day 2:

Explore Saganaga by kayak, hopscotching around the islands or exploring Devil Walk Bay or Red Rock Bay. Tonight you are camping in the western part of Saganaga.

Day 3:

We spend the day kayaking the far west end of Saganaga, looping into the lakes that can be reached without portaging or dropping down into Red Rock Bay. Then it’s another night of swimming, dinner and relaxing.

Day 4:

Paddle back to the Sag landing, seeking the islands or bays we missed on Day 2. After we load up the van and trailer, we head back to Grand Marais and arrive at Stone Harbor by 5:00.
