Lake Superior is the world’s largest freshwater lake, holding one tenth of all the freshwater on the planet. Its rugged north shore on Minnesota’s northern border in Cook County is rocky, wild, and incredibly scenic. Its breathtaking scenery, beaches full of agate, and waters full of fish have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years in all seasons. Because of its size, the lake’s waters can act as if out on the ocean and can quickly turn from being clear and quiet as glass to a frothy, raging monster that sinks large ships. Nevertheless, sailing is one of the most fascinating activities on the north shore, because it offers the opportunity to watch the incredible scenery as well as to catch some fish for dinner. If you don’t have your own boat, hop aboard the beautiful classic schooner Hjordis and tour the Grand Marais harbor. Lake Superior’s north shore is a significant migratory birds’ migration corridor, and it offers fantastic opportunity for bird watching.
