Voyageurs National Park is an oasis of interconnected waterways, ancient rock and forested lands in the heart of the continent, straddling the Canadian border. Remote and rugged, it preserves the cross-country trade route canoed centuries ago by French fur traders known as voyageurs.

The park sits at the southern end of the Northern Boreal Forest and boasts an interior landscape of pine, fir and spruce, supporting a variety of wildlife. Visitors can see hundreds of species of birds, including eagles, and larger animals such as deer, wolves and occasionally even moose.

Water, Water Everywhere

The park's four main lakes — Kabetogama, Namakan, Rainy and Sand Point — plus 26 smaller inland lakes together make up more than a third of the total park area, creating a paradise for boaters and fishers.
