starting at $349 Northern Lights Package

Get a front row seat for these heavenly displays 

Around the time of the new moon, when the stars are shining brightly, we frequently get beautiful displays of Northern Lights blazing across the northern skies. Their blue, green and violet hues dance across the heavens in a mystical way.

After your dinner in the lodge, go out on the lake to get in your first viewing, then return to your cabin to cozy up by your fireplace. Just before turning in for the night you’ll want to step out and see the display again. It often will have gotten brighter and more encompassing as the night deepens.

Of course we can’t promise a Northern Lights display every evening! But the new moon phase is the best time of each month for good viewing. With no light from the moon and no city lights to compete with, the displays can be breathtaking. And even if you don’t catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, the view of the Milky Way in the northern Dark Skies is incomparable.

The Northern Lights package includes:

- Three nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin

- All meals from dinner Monday through breakfast Thursday in Justine’s at Gunflint Lodge

- All guided Naturalist activities, including a Northern Lights presentation and a guided night hike

Package pricing:

- $349 per person in a Classic Cabin

starting at $699 Dog Mushing Adventure

For the winter adventurer in you - More than $250 in savings!
 
If you love dog sledding — or have always wanted to try it — this winter adventure weekend is right up your alley. This four-night package gives you three days of Northwoods action. It includes several dog sled rides that will take you through the surrounding Superior National Forest or out on Gunflint Lake, depending on the snow and ice conditions. We’ll mix them up if at all possible. On your second or third rides you’ll be invited to take your turn mushing if you’re up to the adventure (our musher is still with you as a passenger in the sled) … shades of Jack London and adventures of the far North.

In addition, you’ll have access to all the winter activities available at Gunflint Lodge & Outfitters. Our 75 km of cross country ski trails are the most scenic in the Midwest. Most are double tracked (a couple for skate skiing and one pet friendly). Dedicated snowshoe trails will take you through the heavy forest into thick cedar swamps and up aspen hillsides. You’ll have breathtaking views overlooking Gunflint Lake and the Canadian shore. You can also try your hand at fat biking on the trails or lake for an additional fee.

All your meals are included. Big homemade blueberry pancakes for breakfast — and lots of other choices. Soups, deli style sandwiches and fresh salads for lunch. And a tasty dinner in the Lodge which includes several seasonal nightly dinner entrée selections.

As you walk back to your cabin you’ll be able to see if the Northern Lights are blazing away. And you might hear the wolves howling from their habitat up in the surrounding hills.

The Dog Mushing Special includes:

- Four nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin

- All meals from dinner check-in evening through breakfast check-out morning

- Three dog sled rides (one ride each day)

- Cross country skis and snowshoes

- All guided Naturalist activities
