Feature Stories















Canoeing Isle Royale
Heading out on Lake Superior can seem a daunting prospect, until you see Isle Royale come into view. The National Park’s 500,000 acres (202,000 ha) are officially a part of Michigan, though it actually lies 45 miles (72 km) from the Upper Peninsula and 17 miles (27 km) from Minnesota. Visitors arrive via seaplanes or ferries that depart from Grand Portage, Minnesota or Copper Harbor and Houghton, Michigan.  With 169 miles (272 km) of trails the island is a classic hiking destination, but it also has excellent canoeing on the 9 inland lakes and the fjord-like bays of the eastern shore. Isle Royale is a unique way to experience Lake Superior, not from the mainland as it stretches away from you, but surrounded by it, admiring the gleaming waters from the ridge line or floating atop its mighty swells.
