Lake Superior from Historic Naniboujou Lodge: Fur Trade History, Culture, Walks

The Ojibwe called it gichigami, or “great sea.” The French called it le lac supérieur. Today, we call it Lake Superior, and it carries a vast history and collection of stories from its travelers. Experience the rugged “North Shore’s” unique landscape and ecology on the world’s largest freshwater lake and sample the region’s colorful past by learning about the lives of Native Americans, fur traders, and present day residents, including musicians and artists. Round out your learning adventure by visiting Minnesota’s tallest waterfall at the Grand Portage Reservation.
