Family Canoe Trips

14295 Canadian Border Road Ely, MN 55731

Jasper Company offers fun filled family adventures. The BWCA and Quetico Park are the perfect places to introduce your children to nature and outdoor activities. Nature has a way of allowing youth to express their imagination and creativity. A canoe trip builds self esteem and confidence in youth and in adults as well.

Jasper Company guides love introducing guests of all ages to all things Northwoods. The Jasper Company offers families both completely outfitted family day trip adventures and overnight camping trips into the wilderness. Jasper Company encourages the party leader to allow all participants, regardless of age or skill level to have a say in the planning of the wilderness trip.

A great benefit of a family trip is it creates a quality uninterrupted time together that allows all of you to unplug and focus on the more important things.  Consider the time you will have to reconnect with your children while drifting slowly across a calm lake or recalling your own childhood memories of sitting on a log next to a crackling campfire with marshmallows sticking to your fingers. The benefits that you as a family receive and the bonds made on these adventures will last forever.

Jasper Company will gladly help your family plan each day trip itinerary to maximize your enjoyment. The Jasper Company will provide you with a large scale map that can be laid out each evening back at camp or in the Jasper Guest House or Jasper Bay House. Each night you can record all the day’s events on the map; where you paddled and what wildlife you saw- a moose, a beaver house or a bald eagle. The map with all your memories recorded on it will be perfect on your wall as a wonderful keepsake, after serving its navigational purpose.

Here at the Jasper Company, we promise that the wilderness will sell itself and your family will want to return for years to come.
