A superb way to experience the park is by taking a guided tour. You can choose tours by canoe or a boat with an engine. If you don’t own your own boat, you can choose to rent a canoe or row boat. Hiking is another popular activity in the park with nine main hiking trails to choose from. There are hiking opportunities for every person from easy strolls to more difficult and extreme hikes. There is an abundance of wildlife in the park including bears, deer, wolf packs, birds, fish and much more. With so many different activities and sights to offer, Voyageurs National Park is a wonderful Minnesota Northwoods camping destination.
