In the summer, Scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba.
Come to Northern Tier for a whole new level of adventure, up north! From incredible canoe journeys to wild winter wilderness camping, Northern Tier promises the Scouting adventure of a lifetime in the Great North Woods of northern Minnesota and Canada.

Experience the silent and beautiful world of winter in Northern Minnesota and the thrill of dog sledding with White Wolf Dog Sled Outfitters.
Dog sledding is one of the fastest growing sports today. Its popularity has been spurred on by what is known as “The Last Great Race”, The Iditarod, which has received national media attention to a greater degree every year.
The beautiful, smiling, eager sled dogs have won the hearts of many people. The appeal of dog sledding is universal and it’s an experience that leaves you with a desire to come back and do it all over again. For some, it even becomes an obsession and eventually leads to pursuing it more seriously.
Whatever your reason for seeking more information, we encourage you to study our online brochure and then contact us so that we can personally give you more information about our trips, or just to chat about this wonderful way to experience the beauty of winter from atop the runners of a sled powered by an eager team of sled dogs.

At Voyageur Outward Bound School we believe in the potential of every individual. We believe when people discover strength of character, an aptitude for leadership and a desire to serve, it has a positive impact on their lives and the lives of those around them. And that discovery has the power to make the world a better place. Outward Bound changes lives through challenge and discovery. We offer life-changing expeditions for everyone, regardless of social or economic status, race or gender, from struggling teens, to first generation urban youth, adults in transition or veterans integrating back into life outside of active duty.
For over 50 years, we have been changing lives by using the wilderness as a classroom to provide unparalleled opportunities for personal growth, self-reliance, confidence, teamwork and compassion.
Our full portfolio of programs ranges from part-day programming to wilderness programs lasting a full semester. Canoeing, camping, rock climbing, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and urban adventure programs serve as the educational vehicle for social and emotional learning and character development. In all of VOBS programs, tight-knit groups are led through sequenced challenges designed to discover and improve skills such as emotion management, teamwork, initiative, problem solving, responsibility and empathy. This learning occurs for both the individual and the group. Voyageur Outward Bound School students experience the benefit of personal challenge and the positive effects of nature as they build critical life skills.
