Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is recommended for a visit in 2024 by Stephanie Pearson of The New York Times. Despite concerns about potential environmental damage from mining activities, this wilderness adventure in Minnesota offers pristine lakes, dense forests, and abundant wildlife for nature enthusiasts.

This roadless wilderness is pristine, a place to fish for walleye, hear the haunting call of a loon, and camp in thick boreal forest—it’s also a habitat for bears, wolves, and lynx. A suit by a local conservation group seeks to expand the ban on mining. But the area’s future remains uncertain: A bill has been introduced in Congress to reverse the order, and a subsidiary of a Chilean mining company has received approval to conduct exploratory drilling on state land next to the wilderness.
