Meaning traveler in French, the word voyageur was the name given to people who transported furs by canoe as part of the fur trading industry. Theirs was a laborious, grueling job that required them to carry heavy loads when the canoes could not be used.
Your trek will surely not be so toilsome as it was for those men after whom the park was named, but you'd still be walking in their footsteps or paddling a canoe along the same waterways. Visit a number of sites that are accessible only by boat, go on guided boat tours and hikes, or enjoy the serenity and solitude of a lakeside campsite.
