Matt Magolan has been paddling canoes and kayaks in earnest for over 27 years. He currently owns Umingmaq Paddle Touring Center, which has a booth at Canoecopia 2022 offering guided trips and Gram Kajak Greenland paddles. Matt has worked as a professional guide and paddler over many years. He guided canoe trips in Quetico Provincial Wilderness Park when he was in college. Matt has guided sea kayak trips in The Apostle Islands National Seashore, Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario, Pukaskwa National Park in Ontario and The Lofoten Islands in Arctic Norway.

Matt has completed sea kayak expeditions in Arctic Canada and Alaska. Matt has also written articles for Canoe & Kayak and Adventure Kayak Magazines. He has presented multimedia talks at Canoecopia and other paddling symposia around North America.

Since the birth of his twin daughters in 2014, he has focused on raising his girls in the paddling lifestyle. Over the last six years, Matt has spent an overwhelming amount of energy convincing his wife to allow him to plan and execute a series of ever more ambitious paddle touring trips with his family.

Re-discovering the backyard Wisconsin paddle camping gems with his family has rekindled his passion for paddle touring; using the canoe or kayak as a means to get out into the wilderness where water, earth and sky meet. Raising his girls on the water has given Matt a “beginners mind” after years of paddling experiences. Matt has many plans for the paddling future of his family and, so far, the family loves the paddle camping adventures they share!
