Kondos Outdoors was born in Ely, MN in 1980 out of a need of the outfitters to have gear that could withstand the rigors of being on trail all season long. With a roll of fabric, some thread, and the determination of crafting the best gear, began the course for the next 40 years.
Since then with our own experiences on trail and the constant input from guides and mushers, we have created a line of no-frills, but everything you need gear for mushing across the snowy tundra or venturing into the wilderness.
Canoe Country Outfitters is conveniently located in downtown Ely, plus we maintain a private canoe base on Moose Lake (20 miles east of Ely). From these two locations we are able to quickly service all area trip starting points. We have outfitted more people and have been under the same family management longer than any other outfitter, so no one can match our experience and knowledge of the area.
Entry permits are required to travel through this area and we’ll make the application in your behalf. These permits are very limited, so early planning is a must.
A colored brochure, rates, and free map will be sent upon request. We look forward to assisting you in setting up a trip!
Are you tired of complicated commercial vacations that are so fast paced and exhausting you need a vacation after your vacation? Then you need a BWCA Wilderness Canoe Trip!
