INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the Ely inspection station will open for the summer tourist season Saturday.

The border station is located in the National Forest Service Complex in Ely, in northeastern Minnesota. The station serves people arriving from Canada through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

There are no roads into or out of Canada in that remote wilderness area. All travel into and out of Canada is by non-motorized small boat, canoe, kayak or aircraft.

The Ely inspection station is a seasonal facility. It will remain open during the summer tourist season through Sept. 7. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time, seven days a week.
