Character: Paddle on a huge, crescent-shaped lake that is 17 miles long and 3 miles wide but is less windswept than most lakes of Voyageurs National Park. Visit scenic islands with interesting historical significance. Enjoy the rugged beauty of forested rock islands. See a historical, thriving hotel that has no roads leading to it. Enjoy the rare, breathtaking beauty of Namakan Narrows. See Indian pictographs. The first and last days’ paddling will be in a section of lake that resembles a river. During the rest of the trip the considerable size of the lake can be seen, most of it in Canada.
