Lutsen Mountains

Lutsen, MN

A tour around Lake Superior and the North Shore would not be complete without a visit to Lutsen Mountains and a ride on the Midwest’s only gondola. Ride over the Poplar River Valley and through vast woodlands. Once you are at the top of Moose Mountain, visit the Summit Chalet and explore the vistas, trails, and overlooks around the mountaintop.

Summit Chalet
