Hills of Fire— Fall Camping Around the Lake

We took our tour counterclockwise starting in Iron River. We took the Ale tour, making sure to (safely) stop at each brewery as we made our way around the lake. Weather was cold but the colors were vibrant! By the time we were in Canada bus tours filled with tourists were traveling along the coast to get a peek at the peak colors. The Ale tour was strong until we More

Completing the Tour, Canadian Side

When contemplating where to go for fall color viewing, Lake Superior came to mind. We decided on an excursion to the Canadian side, the only part of the Big Lake we had not seen on previous travels. Using the Lake Superior Travel Guide along with other sources, we planned a seven-day trip for the last week of September. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and drove counter clockwise through More

Circle Tour by motorcycle.

One of the best rides we’ve ever taken with beautiful scenery around every bend. Started in Sault Ste. Marie and did the tour counter-clockwise with overnight stays in Wawa, Schreiber, Thunder Bay, Duluth, Ironwood, and Baraga. Highlights were the many waterfalls, Ouimet Canyon, Split Rock Lighthouse, and Copper Harbor. Highly recommend this tour. Dave & Sue Wurl, Rockford MI

Trip of a Life Time

We spent the summer and early fall seeing some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. Started in Sault Ste. Marie, ON and ended up in SSM, MI three months later. We took our motorhome to some wonderful campsites. Highlights were almost too many to mention. If I had to pick I would say Ouimet and Eagle Canyons northeast of Thunder Bay and the sea caves from my kayak near Cornucopia, More

Camp, Kayak and Golf…

We began our trip at Pictured Rocks with a day of hiking and a late afternoon of kayaking at dusk on Kingston Lake. The next day we golfed in Brimley overlooking the lake and the “1,000 footers.” We camped in “The Soo” to the pleasant sounds of ship horns heading into and out of the locks. After a morning of more ship viewing and stocking up on provisions, we had More

Great Scenery

My husband and I have been to Lake Superior five times, beginning in September 2005. During that trip with my brother and sister-in-law, we stayed in Michigan, visiting Sault Ste. Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, Munising and Copper Harbor among other places. We especially enjoyed going through the locks in Sault Ste. Marie and the boat ride to see Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Out time was limited, so we were able to More

One of Our Favorite Vacations

My husband and I completed the 1,300-mile circle tour in September this year. We both agree it was one of our favorite vacations ever. We took nine days but feel we could have have taken two weeks to have more time to enjoy some of the attractions. We started in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, spending our first night at the Best Northern Motel in Wawa with dinner at the Kinniwabi Pines More

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!

On September the 5th we completed the Lake Superior Circle Tour clockwise from Duluth to Duluth.

Some of our favorite experiences were: seeing the massive Hull-Rust-Mahoning open pit mine in Hibbing; watching a More
