Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary – Located only a few miles down the road, the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary, operated by the American Bear Association, is often described as the best place in the world to see wild black bears in their natural habitat. The VSWS is open from 5 till 8 Tuesday-Sunday from memorial day to labor day. A must see!

Hiking- Take a day to go sightseeing near the resort. Northern MN features many popular trails to get out and experience nature untouched. Our personal favorite, the Vermillion Gorge and Falls on Crane Lake.
Mining – As a major part of Northern MN history, iron ore mining goes 1/2 a mile underground at the Soudan Underground Mine State Park. See how they worked, learn how they lived and experience one of the most interesting tours you’ll ever take!
Float Plane Trips – Wanna see the lake from the air, take off right from the dock? Scheduled trips with advanced notice are available from Pelican Lake to surrounding areas.
