Voyageurs National Park is a land of ancient and stunning beauty. Located in the heart of the North American Continent, the park is a place of transition - between land and aquatic ecosystems, between southern boreal and northern hardwood forests, and between wild and developed areas. Its many interconnected waterways are part of the arctic watershed of Hudson Bay. Visitors will enjoy the solitude and scenery that the park has to offer whether taking in the sights and sounds on a trek through a boreal forest, viewing the dark night skies, exploring the water routes, enjoying a peaceful sunrise, or simply relaxing by a campfire. Come experience the life of a voyageur!
