Whether you are a resident of Minnesota or a traveler from other parts of the country or world, adventure activities in Minnesota abound so there is always something to do any time of year. Are you looking for winter adventures, summer exploits, or perhaps the beauty of the world turning green in the spring? The one thing you can count on is that you will certainly find it all, but it’s important to book a Minnesota lakeside resort as early as possible before your vacation to ensure you get the lodge of your choice because they do tend to book up months in advance. Now that you’ve decided where to stay, let’s look at what to do.
Fishing on Pelican Lake
Here is something you might not have considered! You know that lakeside resort mentioned above? You can find one in Orr, which is located on Pelican Lake. The entire population of Orr is under 300 residents and so just about anything you do here any season of the year is an adventure! Fishing on Pelican Lake can be enjoyed during any season, with regular fishing from the shore or a boat, spring, summer, and fall, but you can also ice fish in the winter. What an adventure that would be!
Kayaking or Canoeing
There is nothing quite like the crystal-clear waters of lakes in Minnesota and if your next vacation is in the warmer months of the year, why not rent a kayak or canoe to get out on the water. While so many people will be enjoying a day on the beach for that long-anticipated dip in the water, you can be happily gliding above in a rented vessel that will carry you along to enjoy the wonders of nature you’ll be surrounded by.
Hike the Many Trails Minnesota Is Renowned For
If you happen to be in or around Ely, you could hike the Kawishiwi Falls Trail. It is nature at its finest and many people enjoy the trail during the autumn months when the leaves turn some of the most vibrant colors of anywhere on earth. Hike whilst hearing the water rushing down the falls, but don’t forget to bring a digital camera or smartphone. This is beauty you will want to cherish for the rest of your life.
Thrill to the Adventure of a Zip Line Tour
So, it’s an adventure you are looking for? Why not thrill to the adventure of a zip line tour. They are located around the state but nowhere will you find one quite like the Brainerd Zip Line Tour in the northern area of the state in Nisswa. This is not an adventure for the fainthearted, so if you are afraid of heights, maybe fishing on Pelican Lake would be more to your liking!
There are few areas of the country quite as beautiful as rural Minnesota and, as a result, there will always be something adventurous to do, no matter what time of year you take your vacation. It’s promised to be a vacation you’ll never forget.
