Circling the Pond

This is our first long adventure with our “new” Little Guy teardrop-style camper. We enjoyed being off the ground, dry and warm during the mostly damp days of June 24 – July 7. Our major interests were fly fishing, canoeing and finding EarthCaches, but the tour guide led us to other treasures including many well-done visitor center displays. Our tour began in Grand Marais, Minnesota, where we spent two nights at More

Father-Son Retirement Celebration Ride

After my Dad retired, he wanted to do something crazy, so he asked me to bike around the Lake with him. Neither of us had bike-packing experience, but our local bike shop helped us gear up. The trip was great! We biked an average of 65 miles a day, camped at campgrounds and stayed in hotels. We went clockwise around the Lake starting and ending in Duluth.

Joining the Circle Tour Club

Hi, I would like to get a Circle Tour sticker and certificate for my wife and myself. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary by circling Superior clockwise Sept. 7-14. Our daughter moved to Duluth several years ago. She got me to subscribe to your wonderful magazine and I used it extensively in planning out the trip. Our plan was to see as many waterfalls as we could and also many More

We’ve Circled!

Highlights From Our Lake Superior Circle Tour

Distance Traveled: 3,748 kilometers. Do it in your corvette; do it on your motorcycle; do it in your tin car or pick-up truck. It doesn’t matter how you travel this route, just do it! You will see interesting sights, spectacular scenery and the real beauty of the Canadian North. On Aug. 10, John and I in our Altima and BFF Betty in her Mercedes headed out on a trip of More

Our Tour

My sister and I celebrated our June birthdays this year by driving around this beautiful lake (she is 66 and I am 75 years old). We drove clockwise and took eight days, and we should have taken more time because we missed a lot. We really loved the Keweenaw Peninsula and would love to go back in the fall to Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor. Some of the high notes More

Spectacular Beauty

After talking about it for years, my husband, Terry, and I finally decided to do the tour. We started out on Sunday afternoon, June 12, from Duluth, and did the tour clockwise. We ended the tour a week later in Duluth on Sunday, June 19. We followed Midwest Living Magazine’s suggested day-by-day route. (We weren’t aware of your magazine’s publication on the route until we were in Grand Marais a More

Best Trip Ever

My buddy and I just completed the Circle Tour on Friday, Aug. 21, 2015. Started in Duluth and went clockwise, ended in Duluth. Took us four days! Best trip ever, even though it rained continually for 3 of our 4-day trip. Our favorite spots had to be all along the north coastline past Thunder Bay and heading towards Sault Ste. Marie. Beautiful even in a rain storm! Wawa had one 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
