 Make the Most of a Short Summer

Summers in Northern Minnesota may be short - but they are certainly full of adventure!  The deep wilderness offers camping, hiking, and fishing opportunities for the outdoorsman. Explore the Mesabi Trail, golf some of the best courses in Minnesota and take a great canoing or kayaking adventure.  For those who wish to explore a little closer to home are the historic sites, museums and mining heritage for the lover of history and local ethnic legends. Drive a little farther for a day on an Iron Range golf course with breathtaking, rustic scenery - or its little brother, the Mini Golf course!

The Iron Range is the ideal vacation destination, whether with family or a group of friends. Scenic wilderness, cozy lodging, and dining variety all contribute to a great travel experience.

Make the Most of a Long Winter

Minnesota winter vacations, when paired with warm clothing, offer an incredible experience.  Whether you are an outdoor adventurer or a shopper you will find your winter days packed with fun and adventure. Snowmobiling opportunities are even more extensive than the summer’s ATV / OHV trails, since the tamarack bogs are frozen over and the lakes themselves are integrated into the trail system. Along the lakes are scattered ice fishing houses and tip-ups that catch the winter walleye and crappies.  

The shopping opportunities are full of warm, wintry clothing and unique gifts that are only found on the Iron Range.   

Hunting & Fishing

The lakes and rivers that are found in the midst of the Superior National Forest provide prime habitat for the area’s wildlife.   Nearly half of the acreage on the Iron Range is designated Public Land, cared for by the DNR and US Forest Service for the hunters and fisherman to use with care during the designated seasons.

Hunting Season on the Iron Range is a lengthy holiday.  Blaze orange and camo can be found on most residents, and the outfitters and sporting goods stores are stocked for a great season in the northland.  Whether you hunt grouse, deer, waterfowl, there are thousands of acres available for you to find the Perfect Spot.

Year-Round Fun

With great lodging and a large assortment of activities available for residents and visitors, there are so many fun things to do on the Iron Range for family fun.  Imagine the possibilities - and explore the Iron Range!
