The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) extends along 150 miles (240 km) the U.S.–Canada border in the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota.

The combined region of the BWCAW, Superior National Forest, Voyageurs National Park, and Ontario’s Quetico and La Verendrye Provincial Parks make up a large area of contiguous wilderness lakes and forests called the “Quetico-Superior country”, or simply the Boundary Waters. Lake Superior lies to the south and east of the Boundary Waters.
