Canoeing is an excellent way to see nature. From a canoe you can view wildlife, go fishing, and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with being on the water. Let these incredible canoe trips serve as inspiration for your next vacation!
Travel and Leisure ~ ” Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Minnesota – For a paddle that’s just as beautiful as it is remote, it’s hard to top the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northeast Minnesota. The wilderness area, which is composed of 1,500 miles of canoe routes over 19,000 acres and 1,100 bodies of water, is accessible primarily by canoe. Here in the deep north, boaters are rewarded with scenery that’s still wild and unparalleled solitude.
Noatak River, Alaska – If true isolation is at the top of your list, it doesn’t get much more remote than the Noatak River. Located above the Arctic Circle, this river route passes through a glacial valley, alpine tundra, deep canyons, and open plains. As you float this easy to moderate river, you can drop in a line or keep an eye out for Alaskan wildlife, including grizzly bears, caribou, and sheep.

Buffalo National River, Arkansas – The beautiful Buffalo River passes through the Ozark Mountains and traverses alongside giant bluffs as it runs through quiet pools and tumbling rapids on its way to the White River. Once you reach the confluence, make sure to dip a toe to feel the distinction between the typically cooler White River and the warmer Buffalo waters. This trip can be as short as an afternoon paddle or as long as a multiday journey on the Buffalo River’s 153 miles — either way, you’ll want to keep your fishing gear on hand for the river’s renowned smallmouth bass fishing. ” ~ Travel and Leisure
