Come ride the North Shore of Lake Superior
We’ve added a July departure for this popular tour!
When we say The Minnesota North Shore Tour, we mean it! This tour is 100% along the shore of Lake Superior, from Duluth to Grand Marais. You’ll enjoy overnight stays in Duluth (2 nights), Two Harbors, Beaver Bay and Lutsen. There’s great cycling along Scenic Highway 61, and we also ride on paved bike trail and parkway when available.
We’ve added a full day of tour options in Duluth to start the tour. We only have a day for sights which could take a month, so you’ll have to look over the option list carefully. There will by cycling options from 15 to 50 miles, plus great sights like Glensheen Mansion, the Lake Superior Acquarium, and the Vista Cruise harbor tours. (Subject to change: if MNDoT confirms road construction is complete north of Grand Marais, we’ll continue all the way to the Canada border)
Once we head out of town, you’ll love riding along the shore of Lake Superior. There are freighters on Lake Superior, famous cliffs and lighthouses, and about a thousand rivers. Off-bike sights include Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse. We even have a canoe trip scheduled at Lutsen River.
Guest Health and Safety
All our 2022 tours will operate using our company Pandemic Safety Plan. We wrote this plan for the 2020 season and it was integral to our tours. Our goal is to provide a safe tour experience for our guests, our staff, and all our lodging and dining partners along the route.
Our guests never go lacking for food. Included in the tour are breakfast Monday-Friday, and supper on Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The North Shore has an unexpected and amazing variety of pubs and restaurants along the way for your support. In addition, we maintain a list of the best brew pubs, just in case that appeals to you.
Your tour ticket includes lodging Sunday through Thursday night. We’ve selected our hotel partners based on careful vetting and past experience. Camp 61 in Beaver Bay is one of our favorite inns. No two rooms are alike, and they even have a restaurant and pub. Further up the road, enjoy our last night out at Caribou Highlands Resort. These are just two examples of our lodging.
Wildflowers all around. A chance to see deer and other animals. Freighters on Lake Superior. Wonderful cafes and bistros with craft beer and great food. Bridges and rivers and more bridges, and a foreign country at the end. Please come along, you’ll be glad you did!
We designed this tour with a modest daily mileage, because there are so many sights along the route. You’ll probably be off & on the bikes all day. Even so, we recognize that a few of you will need more miles, and we’ve got them! Each day will have extra routes for the bold, and we even have pre- and post-tour self-guided rides in Duluth. The 150 miles in the tour could become 350!
