The Rocky Coast of Lake Superior

October 1 - 6, 2017 - 6 Days

The North Shore Scenic Drive of Lake Superior is a voyage through some of America’s most unspoiled lands. This scenic drive is a paved line between rugged boreal forests aglow with brilliant fall foliage and the rocky lake shoreline. It is the land of the Sawtooth Mountains, dramatic cliffs above Lake Superior, cascading waterfalls, and the Superior National Forest. You may see eagles, loon or moose, or hear the howl of a wolf. Come, explore Minnesota’s beautiful autumn.
