Plan a day trip to Isle Royale. This island national park offers spectacular fishing, canoeing, hiking and one of the nation's best parks for spotting wildlife. Moose, foxes, waterfowl and wolves all live on the island.
Bring your bikes to check out the Gitchi-Gami paved bike trail (5 miles to trail, you will want to put bikes on your bike rack as we feel this part of HWY 61 is not safe for bikers.) Once you arrive at the trail, you can bike from Lutsen to Tofte, have lunch and then return for a massage at Lutsen Lodge Spa. (16 miles round trip).
Bring your golf clubs and check out Superior National Golf Course. One round of golf and you will know why Golf Digest rated Superior National #1 in the state of Minnesota. It belongs on every golfer's bucket list. Only 5 miles from the cabin.
