Canoe country was explored by the early Voyageurs, or "travelers" who operated the canoes of those who were the fur traders in this bygone era. These French/Canadian Voyageurs were a hearty lot and the legends of their travels and exploration are a huge part of the history of the North Country.

You will not work as hard as the Voyageurs did. That's a promise! There will be plenty of time to linger to discover the beauty and solitude of the area and its superb fishing. Bring your rod and reel if you want to try your hand at fishing, and be prepared with camera to "catch" a photo of the abundant wildlife.
