Founded in 2005. Northwoods Survival is a wilderness guide service that specializes in guided fly fishing excursions. We also offer classes in boreal wilderness survival training and bushcraft.


Our adventure trips are led by experienced guides to ensure a safe and enjoyable wilderness experience.



“We’ve spent 15 years building this guide service from the ground up and a lifetime practicing the skills that we believe are required to teach and lead people in the bush. We are always grateful to be able to share these outdoor pursuits with our clients and we think that shows in the service that we provide.”
