One of the Best outfitters I've ever used. Their personal knowledge of the areas you are entering is refreshing and the help the provide loading up your Canoe gear is very useful. The Bunkhouses that can be rented to stage your groups gear for the the trip is relaxing, comfortable and a great pre-trip pick me up. I would recommend them to anyone going into the Boundary waters Canoe Area. I'll be back soon. Dave

We used Cliff Wold's for a trip in June with my three teenage sons and a friend and his teenage son. Ryan and his team did a wonderful job of equipping us and getting us out on the water. Equipment and food was top notch, everyone had a great time. If you are thinking of going into the BWCA, go with Ryan and Cliff Wold's!!! I've used Cliff Wold's three times now and cannot recommend them highly enough.

These guys are great! We rented gear for our first Boundary Waters trip this year. The gear was in great shape, and the staff was super nice and helpful. We'll definitely rent from them again in the future!!

My family makes 2-3 trips a year for the last 10+ years. We have tried every outfitter in the town of Ely and many resorts/outfitters. Cliff Wold's Outfitting sincerely cares about your experience. They want to take the time to get to know you and your trip expectations. The little details are the difference! I recommend them to everyone!

Ryan and the driver that dropped me off was exceptional to work with and because of his recommendations on the best canoe to use, my first solo trip could not have gone any better. I won't use any other outfitter in Ely and I hope I can get back up there for a winter excursion. Give Ryan a call!
