Dog sledding, skiing and snowshoeing for snow lovers
(or wanna-be snow lovers)
Winter along the Gunflint Trail is a different world than either summer on the Trail or winter in the city. If you've not been to our backyard when it's covered in sparkling white, you're missing out! It doesn't get any better.
This package is for adventure lovers of all ages. You'll find new reasons to love winter beyond just the beauty. Take full advantage of the many activities only available in places like ours that receive a healthy dumping of snow each year.
The dog sled rides will take you up into the back basin past Lonely Lake, or the high ridges to our south. Your first ride will be an hour long. On your second, longer ride you'll have the option to try your hand at mushing the team — an unforgettable experience!
Dedicated snowshoe trails go through thick cedar swamps and stands of paper birch. You won't be sharing the trails with skiers, dog sleds or snowmobiles … just you and the solitude.
Over 75 km of beautifully-groomed trails await you for your cross country skiing. The trails will take you through a mature pine and aspen forest and up into the highlands with scenic overlooks.
The Wild Winter Adventure package includes: four nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin, all meals, ski and snowshoe rentals, guided naturalist trips, and two dog sled rides.
