Just Finished the Lake Superior Circle Tour

Hi, we have just finished our Lake Superior Circle Tour! We started from Sault Ste. Marie and finished there. We started on Sept. 17 and ended Sept. 24. We did it as a couple, driving our SUV and using local motels to stay. We hiked a few parks as we are avid hikers. That was a very intense drive but truly worth it! Lake Superior is majestic and a bit More

Loved It All

Started the trip Sept. 10 and ended the trip Sept.19. Spent nine days driving around the lake. We drove a little over 1,600 miles with the side trips. Loved it all. It was like three different scenic areas. The first one was the Minnesota north shore. Been there several times in the past, but never been past Grand Marais before. The second area was past Thunder Bay. It was just a More

A Wonderful Trip!

We did the Lake Superior Circle Tour from July 3-12, 2015. What an awesome trip! It is so hard to pick favorites. Loved the view of Split Rock Lighthouse from afar. Watching climbers at Palisades Cliffs. Grand Marais was a cute little town (great meal at The Angry Trout). We saw a bear on the Gunflint Trail. High Falls and Kakabeka Falls were just the beginning of many beautiful falls. More

Highly Recommend It

We arrived in Duluth on June 21 and returned on July 5 after going clockwise around the lake. My dad had been on several mine tours before but thought the Soudan Underground Mine’s was the best he had seen. He was also impressed with Quincy’s. We had beautiful weather so we were really able to enjoy the shore views and waterfalls. I really enjoyed discovering the various views of Split More

Some of My Favourite Places

I started the Circle Tour on Aug. 10 and completed it Aug. 17 of 2014. Some of my favourite places on the tour were Lake Superior Provincial Park – specifically Agawa and Old Woman Bay, camping at Pancake Bay Provincial Park and Neys Provincial Park, Palisade Head and the Apostle Islands. I would love to receive the certificate of completion and the decal. Thanks so much! Ann Marie Sheehan, Loretto, More

Very Enjoyable

We took the Lake Superior Circle Tour Aug. 6-17, driving counterclockwise. The drive was very enjoyable. The one disappointment we had was not being able to stop for the night when we wanted to. Prior to the trip I started checking on line for lodging accommodations and was surprised to find very limited options. Therefore I did make arrangements prior to leaving home. Due to the limited availability of accommodations More

Already Talking About Another Trip!

My husband Mark and I completed the Circle Tour July 19. We began at Sault Ste. Marie and absolutely loved the experience. The scenery is breathtaking. We traveled with our dog and small camper. We stayed at the National park, private, city, state and national forest campgrounds, each with its own uniqueness and beauty. Kakabeka Falls, the Apostle Islands, Ouimet Canyon, the moose, bear and birds we saw made this More

So Much to Explore

We finished June 28 with the International Bridge Walk at the twin Saults and the Engineers day at the Soo Locks. Favorite places include Lake of the Clouds, Whitefish Point, Pictured Rocks, Apostle Islands, Minnesota’s north shore, amethyst mines, Kakabeka Falls and Gooseberry Falls. So much to explore, so little time! Our not-so-favorite was the major detour (4 hours) caused by one bridge being washed out! Ann & Paul Heilborn, More
