Welcome to Northwest Minnesota

The home to Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe, delicious blueberries, majestic black bears and the loon are images sparked by Northwest Minnesota, but beyond these lies an expansive outdoor playground for nature lovers. Grab a paddle and a canoe and navigate along the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Or bring a fishing pole and some bait, and try your luck at angling in the Walleye Capital of the World in the Lake of the Woods! Take your boat out or swim in the refreshing waters of Cass Lake. From Bemidji hop on a snowmobile or slip on a pair of hiking boots or cross skis in Roseau to discover the woodlands, lakes and dazzling white winters beneath the magical colors of the Northern Lights. Every season has something for everyone in Northwest Minnesota!
