** Lightweight canoes are not available for Bissett Trips or for Atikokan Fishing Trips.

***In 2018 Northern Tier's standard canoe outfitting will be the lightweight canoe. If a crew would prefer to use a heavier aluminum canoe, they may select that at the time of registration and will receive a discounted rate for that option.

All fees (including deposit) are non-refundable and nontransferable in the event of cancellation. Be cautious of making reservations or paying fees for those who have not made a financial commitment. Northern Tier High Adventure Programs must commit financial resources to employ staff, purchase food and supplies, and prepare for base operations. Participants are, therefore, also required to make a financial commitment to attend. Be conservative in making reservations to avoid losing fees due to cancellations.
