Wisconsin Headwaters Canoeing



Explore the historic Wisconsin River from the headwaters, traveling downstream 50 miles to the Rainbow Flowage.  Some of the first voyageurs in the 15th century traversed south into the unexplored “Ouisconsin Territory” by this route.  Paddle through country where wolf, black bear, and deer, as well as herons, hawks, eagles and more still roam freely.  You may even spot a moose! Fishing is excellent, from native trout at the headwaters, to a full range of pan and game fish downstream.  If a 50 mile trek seems a bit too challenging, we can modify it to suit your group’s needs.

Minimum Age:  All youth must be at least 13 years old, or at least 12 years old AND completed grade 7.  Anyone 21 years old before the conclusion of the trek must register as an adult.

Group size:  Up to 12 participants (11 from your unit plus our guide to total 12)
