Winter Family Exploration Vacation to Lutsen and Duluth MN


Take a family trip to Lutsen and Duluth MN along Lake Superior.

A Must-Do in the Winter, only the strong and brave can survive but your kids will talk about it for years.
Duluth is located on Lake Superior and an outdoor haven for those who love to ski – downhill or cross country, snowshoe, dogsled, skijourn, hike, skate and play in the winter snow. Lutsen is 2 hours north of Duluth, towards Canada and along Lake Superior. Lutsen has the best downhill skiing in Minnesota in a beautiful, almost untouched area of the country. You will feel like you are a million miles away from it all in Lutsen. Plan your next winter family vacation to Duluth MN.

The Mountain Villas at Spirit Mountain are great yurts for a real family experience.
