Our all-in-one circle tour.

We had done all the parts over the years but decided to do all-in-one. We started at Duluth and overnighted at Thunder Bay, Terrace Bay, Wawa, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario; Marquette, Copper Harbor and finished up driving to Ironwood, Bayfield and Superior. The friendliest welcome was found in Thunder Bay and Wawa and we were amazed at every stop at the sheer size of the lake. We really enjoyed hiking More

Superior Circle Tour Adventure 2018

After reading the article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, we got excited and without much planning, decided to go for it! We traveled with our friends with their RV and trailed with our car and let the Lake Superior Travel Guide (I highly recommend it) lead us on our adventure. The weather was perfect each day, and the views were fantastic! A few of our many favorite spots were Grand More

The Merry Widows on the Circle Tour

We started in Duluth, MN and ended in Ontonagon, MI. Or favorite stops in Minnesota were Two Harbors, Beaver Bay and Gooseberry Falls. The Ontario section of the trip included beautiful scenery. We stopped at the Diamond Willow Amethyst Mine just after a rain and found plenty of jewels. We enjoyed our dinner at the Serendipity Gardens Cafe in Rossport. White River, birthplace of Winnie the Pooh, was an educational More

Our Circle Tour

Temps were in the 60s for perfect hiking and outdoor adventures. Things that impressed us: the murals on the buildings in Ashland, WI; the waterfront in Duluth and the size of the massive harbor where 1,000′ freighters could “get 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

Started in Duluth

I started the Circle Tour June 18, 2015 in Duluth and finished June 25. I drove clockwise. Next time I will take more time. I drove a Mazda Miata, and was only able to have the top down for about half of the trip due to rain. I especially enjoyed the stretch between Nipigon and Sault Ste. Marie. Another trip I’ll spend more time in Copper Harbor and Wawa. Pebble More
