Our canoe trip outfitting base is located on an island in Lac La Croix on the Canadian side, it's in the western portion of the Quetico Park and BWCAW. Zup's has been outfitting canoe trips since 1936 - tempering the wilderness just enough for human beings to enter and enjoy. We offer numerous canoe routes to pick from.
