Sail on the Hjørdis

North House Folk School | Grand Marais MN

The flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis shares the name of the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip on this 50’ traditionally-rigged steel schooner and gain access to both the largest lake in the world and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.

The 2019 sailing season has begun! Even better than watching her from the shore is spending time aboard out on the water

Try the 2-Hour Daily Sail, or Friday and Saturday Sunset Sail!

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse - Fishing Without Hooks
Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse - Fishing Without Hooks

Tettegouche State Park Visitor’s Center | Silver Bay MN

Registration Required

You’re stranded, hungry, and getting desperate. In this Land of 10,000 Lakes there is a good chance that fish-filled waters are nearby. Now, how to catch them without a graphite rod and expensive tackle?

In this program we’ll explore and try out some alternative methods for catching fish to eat. We’ll spend the day at Tettegouche Camp, on Mic Mac Lake, making some fishing gear then catching fish (hopefully!). If we are successful we may even indulge in a little shore lunch

Participants will need to bring a sharp knife, clothing for the weather, a lunch and a water bottle. Come prepared for any weather conditions as this program will occur, rain or shine.

Meet the Park Naturalist at the parking lot on Lax Lake Road on the northern edge of the park at 9am. We will hike the 1.7 miles into Tettegouche Camp. A Minnesota fishing license is not required for Minnesota residents to fish on Mic Mac Lake.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED AND THIS COURSE IS LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS! Send an email to [email protected] to register.
