Shuttle Service
We take care of the shuttling before your trip begins, which means you can be on your way as soon as you paddle into the landing. After you arrive at our Lanesboro store, you follow us to the ending point of the trip and drop off your vehicle. We then give you a ride, along with the canoes, paddles, and lifejackets, to the beginning point of the trip. You simply canoe to your vehicle, leave the canoe at the landing, and check back in at our store to return the lifejackets and paddles and let us know you returned safely.
