Outfitting and Rates

Hungry Jack Outfitters can provide you with everything you need for paddling and camping in the Boundary Waters or Quetico Park.

Even if you just need a light Kevlar canoe and some good advice, we can help. All our customers get trip-planning assistance, permit reservations, and friendly service.

Complete Outfitting Packages

Complete outfitting provides you with everything you need for a wilderness canoe trip, from planning and permits to hot showers at the end. All trips are custom-planned for your group.

We recommend a complete package for those who have not been to the area or do not have much experience in wilderness travel. Many of our guests use complete outfitting simply because it is easy and we always have the latest gear ready and waiting for them when they arrive.

You bring only clothing and some personal gear, and we take care of the rest.  Here’s a list of what’s included with complete outfitting.   You will receive a checklist with specific suggestions about clothing and personal items that we find to be worth their weight.

Food-and-Canoe Package

The food-and-canoe packages are for people who have most of their own camping gear.

We take care of the food, which is the most time-consuming and difficult thing to organize. Then we put it all in an insulated food pack so it’s easy to find. And we provide a canoe, paddles, flotation jackets, a room the night you arrive with breakfast in the morning, and trip routing.

The food-and-canoe packages also include our clean-up kit and bear-rope system. Other camping gear and maps are available ala cart from Hungry Jack Outfitters or you may bring your own.

Food and Canoe Only, Rates per Person

Calendar Days
3 $210
4 $265
5 $320
6 $370

Group Rates

For complete outfitting we will discount our rate as follows:

  • 6 to 11 people: deduct 10%
  • 12 to more people: deduct 25%

For partial outfitting and for food-and-canoe packages, we will discount prices by 10% for groups of 12 or more.

Going solo?

This is a great way to experience the wilderness that offers unique rewards and challenges. Traveling alone requires some additional skills and is not for total beginners. If you have some previous experience in the woods, it can be very satisfying.

We have special lightweight canoes and gear for the solo traveler. For complete outfitting, our regular complete-outfitting rates apply.

This package includes a We-no-nah solo Kevlar canoe weighing 32 lb., special tent and pack, and extra-light gear. For our larger solo paddlers, or those concentrating on fishing, we use the Souris River 16′ Quetico as a solo boat. It weighs a few pounds more but handles a much bigger load and is very stable.
