Circle Lake Superior

1. Home to Grand Portage
This morning we begin our exciting journey
around beautiful Lake Superior, the largest of
the Great Lakes. Our first stop will be in Duluth
for lunch in Canal Park. Take some time
to explore the waterfront with it’s Maritime
Museum and charming shops. Later we make
our way north to Gooseberry Falls a gateway
to the North Shore. It is known for its spectacular
waterfalls, river gorge, and rocky Lake
Superior shoreline. Listen to the thunderous
roar of the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls of
the Gooseberry River as it plummets through
a rocky gorge. Watch for waves, ships, or the
moon rise on Lake Superior from an ancient
lava flow known as the Picnic Flow. Stop at

2 . Grand Portage to Thunder Bay,

This morning head to High Falls at Grand
Portage where torrents of wild water plummet
120 feet over the High Falls down to
the Pigeon River in this park on the U.S.
– Canadian border. The falls, the highest
in the state, is a sight to see! Travel into
Canada and visit Fort William Historic Park,
a leading heritage and cultural attraction that
brings people from across North America
to experience northern hospitality, to be
entertained, and to conduct business – just
like we did two hundred years ago. We’ll
tour the Fort and enjoy lunch here. Later
view Kakabeka Falls as it plunges 131 ft. over
sheer cliffs and some of the oldest fossils in
the world. A birds-eye view is offered from
platforms along the edge of the gorge. Arrive
in Thunder Bay and enjoy some of the local
sights before dinner on your own.

Day 3 – Thunder Bay to Marathon,
This morning enjoy breakfast before we see
the Terry Fox Memorial,, situated in the outskirts
of Thunder Bay. The memorial signifies
humanitarian Terry Fox’s tragic halt in his
Marathon of Hope on August 31, 1980. The
monument depicts Terry Fox during his run.
On the southern tip of this rugged peninsula
near Thunder Bay lies the legendary Sleeping
Giant. Venture deep into its boreal forests
to experience the back country, or follow
its rugged trails to the top of the giant for
unbeatable views of Lake Superior. Look for
deer, moose and other large mammals in the
park’s vast forests and lowlands. The beauty
of this park will leave you spellbound. Next
get your camera’s ready as we make our
way to Ouimet Canyon. This sheer-walled
canyon shelters rare Arctic-alpine plants
along its boulder laden floor, where snow
often persists until late spring. From two
platforms and a network of boardwalks and
trails, view this spectacular gorge and feel
the air rising from the depths. Walk across
Canada’s longest Suspension Bridge and
view the sheer cliffs of the canyon, view the
depths where a beautiful spring fed lake runs
through. Follow our trails and stairs cascading
into the gorge. An experience you will
long remember.
