Guided Trips

 Guided Canoe and Kayak Trips

Let us take care of the planning, preparation and logistics for you.  You just come and have fun!  Grab your group of 10 or more and let’s hit the water.

We know you have a busy life and sometimes we hear people say how going on the river is just too much work, with:DSCI0637

  • planning where to camp

  • building fires

  • carrying food and then preparing meals

  • and worst of all, how much work cleaning up is after meals

WRO has the solution for you! Let us do all the work and you and your friends can sit back, relax and enjoy the river.

Our guided canoe and kayak trips are designed for…everyone! We’ve had 3 year olds on our trips and we’ve taken senior groups also.

Our trips are primarily on the Wisconsin River for groups of 10+ people, over a period of 2 – 4 days. However, we will go anywhere in the state providing the river is conducive to camping. Also, ask about our whitewater trips, which are best before July on the Flambeau River.

While on your guided trip, you will camp on the sandbars in the middle of the river. Your guide will provide meals and take care of campsite (sandbar!) selection and any other logistical considerations. You WILL NOT find a better experience this close to home!

Sunrise on the river, let the day begin!Scouts and Non Profits

WRO is the Midwest’s source for guided trips for Boy and Girl Scouts and non profit organizations. We take care of the logistics, all you have to do is show up. If needed we’ll provide tents and sleeping bags for your group and we always provide great meals. Visit our Scouts/Non Profit page for additional details.

It is illegal to be in possession of glass on the Wisconsin River. Assume you WILL be searched by the WI Dept. of Natural Resources. If caught you will face a fine of upto $749 for the possession of glass (beer bottles, jelly jars, mayo jars, wine bottles).

Fireworks are also illegal and punishable by fines. We are trying to provide a peaceful experience for our paddlers and the many migratory birds that we share the river with. Leave your glass and fireworks at home and save yourself the fine for being in possession of them on the river.
