Seek Adventure in a Million
Acres of Water

Known as “The Walleye Capital of The World”, Lake of the Woods boasts one million acres of water with over 15,000 islands that stretch out over American and Canadian waters. Fishing, hunting, hiking, 4-wheeling, boating, kayaking, snowmobiling, or exploring the vast beauty of the North West Angle are just a few beginnings of the outdoor adventures we can help you plan (either guided or on your own). For the birding and sight-seeing enthusiast, maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of the endangered Piping Plover that makes its home on Pine Island or witness the Aurora Borealis as their beautiful lights dance through the sky.

Great Fishing All-Year Round
