This journey promises a diverse paddling experience. It is primitive and remote, at times very narrow and wild. Other reaches flow through more populated areas. As it nears the confluence of the St. Croix River, it runs wider and slower. The Namekagon River merges with the St. Croix on the final day. The journey will last 6-days, cover 92-miles, and is perfect for both canoe or kayak. This is a partially supported paddle: we will haul your overnight gear and provide other limited services.
Expect to unplug and reconnect with the natural world. You’ll challenge yourself, be inspired, and build lasting relationships with a new community of paddlers. Namekagon River communities will welcome you, each sharing their unique personalities. You will explore a national park and see an abundance of wildlife. Every night at camp you can expect to be inspired by educational programs.
