Northeast Minnesota

4.5
An open-air playground on pinewoods and waters, Northeast Minnesota offers endless options for outdoor recreation--ranging from hiking and biking to camping and boating. A scenic helicopter flight over the region's rugged wilderness reveals iconic views of foaming waterfalls and river rapids, serene lakes and rocky cliffs. For a slice of urban life, visit the booming port city of Duluth, with a bustling downtown area built on canals and packed with eateries, shops, and hotels. Hip and artsy little town of Grand Marais makes a good launching pad for trekking into unspoiled backcountry. On a Northeast Minnesota trip, action-oriented vacationers can satisfy their inner adventurer, while the rest can lay back and relax to the soothing sights and sounds of water.
