Meet Your Guides

Emily Schwanke
Owner/Guide
 

From the time I was three weeks old, I have been playing in the Northwoods. Through years of exploring Voyageurs National Park and the surrounding lakes, I have grown to love and appreciate the area. Join me on a paddling trip, a boating adventure, or a walk through the woods to find out for yourself the rich history and magical experiences that Northern Minnesota has to offer.

I've been lucky enough to call Crane Lake & Voyageur's National Park my stomping grounds since I was a very young boy. Throughout my lifetime of working, fishing and exploring I've become deeply in touch with the lakes, surroundings, and all they have to offer. What I enjoy most is sharing these experiences and interactions with nature with others. Come join me on the water or in the woods for an unforgettable time!

I have always had a love for the outdoors. Many of my happiest memories are in the woods and on the water. I grew up in River Falls, Wisconsin, spent a few years in Grand Teton National Park and now have the privilege to call Voyageurs National Park my home. I am grateful for the opportunity to get you out on the water to adventure, fish, and explore.
