Boundary Waters & Quetico Calendar

The Boundary Waters & Quetico Calendar gives you twelve outstanding photographs to remind you of where you’ve spent precious, perhaps even life-changing, moments. Locations are identified so you will know exactly where these familiar scenes are awaiting your return.

When our most enthusiastic customers get in touch, they always comment on the sidebars. These contain a variety of topics from human and natural history to camping tips and even recipes, with some occasional philosophical rants about wilderness and getting kids outdoors. Moon phases, hunting and fishing seasons, emergency contacts, permit information, holidays and local events are included. With all that we try to leave enough room for you to add your appointments and special events on each date.
