Experience the beautiful Root River valley during an overnight canoe adventure. Learn the basics of canoe camping from your experienced river guide, then put those skills to the test as we paddle 30 miles of the Root River over two days. Enjoy southeastern Minnesota’s Driftless region from a unique perspective, paddling past towering limestone cliffs and lush hardwood forests while watching for Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, and elusive River Otters. Share stories around the shore side campfire, then fall asleep to the calming sounds of the river. All essential paddling gear, meals, and transportation to and from the river will be provided.

Day 1: Check in from 5:30-6:30pm       Day 2: all day     Day 3: estimated class ending time 4:30pm
