Land of Rugged Beauty

Discover the wild beauty of Northeast Minnesota, where panoramic lake views, scenic rivers, tumbling waterfalls and dramatic woods are a sight to behold year-round. Wonder-filled cities await as well.

The magnificent Lake Superior, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the freshwater-based Voyageurs National Park are highlights in this region where fishing, boating, hiking, biking, canoeing and camping rule. Explore unspoiled back country, or “rough it” in comfort at a lakeside lodge.

Experience the rich cultural tapestry of northeast Minnesota in Duluth, which brings big city fun with a seaport vibe. Smaller towns in the region are worthy of exploration, offering heritage museums, art galleries, and delicious food and craft beer.
