Year-round Minnesota Recreation

Whatever it is you choose to do, you’ll be doing precisely what nature intended.

Hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing — your options for outdoor activities in Minnesota’s north woods are as countless as stars in the summer sky, as snowflakes on a winter day. Here, a million acres of unspoiled wilderness spread out before you. Just decide what you want to do first, and maybe find an outfitter.
