GREAT LAKES, GREAT BREWS - NORTHERN MINNESOTA
Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters
Enjoy a week on Northern Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastline! Travel and Leisure Magazine named this one of the ‘most scenic drives’ in America for its rugged coastline, dense forests, and charming country shops and restaurants. After an evening sampling local beers in Duluth, we take three days to ride north to the picturesque city of Grand Marais. Throughout the ride, we will sample local cuisine and indulge in some of the best fish that Lake Superior has to offer. After our night in Grand Marais, we ride the length of the Gunflint Trail - a historic road leading to the entrance of the Boundary Waters- one of America’s most pristine wilderness areas. We will spend two nights here, giving the option to mountain bike, hike, canoe, fish, or just lounge around on the last day of the tour. Both the ride to Grand Marais and the ride into the Boundary waters are National Scenic Byways- and we can’t wait for you to join us and see why!
