So far the Northstar Experience has been day trips on Minnesota and Wisconsin rivers within a half day drive of the Twin Cities, our home base. The opportunity is open to anyone who loves to canoe. We leisurely paddle 15 or 20 miles with a lunch stop. We choose a river so that everyone can join us.

Naturally we want to see as many old Bells and new Northstars on the water as possible. We do tolerate other canoes, especially if they are hilariously camouflaged (see duct taped canoe in photos).

The Northstar Experience is about sharing time on the water. It’s a chance for everyone from highly skilled canoeists to beginners to paddle the same stretch of river. We hope you’ll join us on the next trip!
