My brother and I are looking for an unguided, self supported canoe trip in September for at least a week, ideally two weeks. We would need an outfitter to provide rental of all canoe equipment (we have our own camping gear). If possible the weather would be warm during the day, cold at night is fine.
We are both experienced in the backcountry and have limited experience in kayaks. When it comes to canoes we are beginners so flat water to Class II?? is our level I think.
Ideally the outfitter would be able to provide instruction on how to pack the canoe and any other relevant information relevant to the water as this would be our first expedition in a canoe. A one or two day course would be perfect.
This would be the first two weeks of a four week trip, so if there is decent mountain biking and climbing in the same area that would be a bonus.
So far we are considering Boundary Waters, Green River or Allagash Wilderness, Any advice considering these three for September or other suggestions would be appreciated.
