Yes, we did it!

Just finished an amazing tour around Lake Superior. Started in Sault St. Marie, Ontario and continued counterclockwise. We saw much more than expected and were impressed by nature’s beauty. Give yourself at least 1 or 2 extra days, so that you have enough time to fully indulge in your journey around the Big Lake. Nadja and Joerg, Saline MI

2019 Lake Superior Circle Tour

We had taken this trip July 2013 traveling clockwise by car and staying at motels. This was pre-retirement, so we were both watching the clock/calendar, mindful of how many miles we needed to complete each day. It was a wonderful trip! We are now both retired, and purchased a Vistabule teardrop camping trailer that we tow with our Jeep. We decided to take the tour again, but counter-clockwise, camping along More

Once around the Big Lake

We traveled with 2 couples, convoy-style, clockwise beginning and ending in Duluth. Our first day was just spent enjoying the sights of Duluth. We spent time at Canal Park, Hoops Brewery and Burrito union, Two couples stayed at Park Point Marina Inn & Harbor where we finished off our day playing dominoes. Day 2 Duluth – Thunder Bay: I always enjoy the view at Palisade Head so we made a More

Our Amazing Circle Tour

The lighthouses and waterfalls were spectacular. Amnicon Falls, Gooseberry Falls, Tahquamemon Falls were great. The Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point on a rainy, windy day reminded us just how stormy Lake Superior can be. We took the sunset cruise at Pictured Rocks and were on the cruise ship when a family of four were rescued from the rocky coastline. Favorite lighthouse- Split Rock Lighthouse Ruby & Bill Dow, Mauston, WI

Circle Tour observations

As a native of the Chicago suburbs, I grew up thinking that Lake Michigan was the best of the Great Lakes. After attending Bemidji State in the late 70s, my love of Superior first was nurtured. This led to a now 40+ year love affair with the “Big Lake”! My first Circle Tour in ‘77 was probably the most memorable for it was on motorcycle and with a gorgeous girlfriend. More

The Big Lake. We did it!

A most amazing trip, we started from home in the Seattle area in late May pulling our little teardrop T@b 320S and headed for the bucket list destination of a lifetime, Lake Superior! From Duluth northward, we headed to Thunder Bay for sauna and the Finnish restaurant, Hoito, and were enchanted, well fed and squeaky clean to boot. Incredible waterfalls along the way and scenic vistas. We entered back into More

What a ride!

What an amazing ride! We rode our motorcycles (my BMW R1200GS Adventure) counter clockwise around Superior. The scenery and beauty even in June, was simply amazing. You could feel the total environment cool as you wind nearer the lake, and then warm as you move away. People were amazing. To top it off, riding off road across the UP was a wild adventure after so much asphalt! LOVED IT! Dave More

Bike time

Two bikes and two couples with a schedule and a plan. Small towns and dirt roads. Food and laughs. Gotta Google that. Come ride Lake Superior it will be fun. You do not need your heated gear. All done with lots of fun. Tim and Cindy Germain, Saint Paul, MN 

2019 Lake Superior Circle Tour

We set out intending a counter-clockwise route, but realized that due to Memorial Day Weekend, we might have difficulty finding campgrounds in the U.S. We were camping at Jay Cooke State Park in our Vistabule teardrop trailer when we made the decision to go clockwise. Provincial Parks (Kakabeka, Rainbow, White Lake, Rabbit Blanket) provided great campsites on the Ontario side, and we were treated to plenty of waterfalls (as well More
