Free Family Adventures
Northern Lights Adventures–Kawishiwi Falls Trail
Join our staff for a free guided round-trip nature hike into majestic Kawishiwi Falls – one of the largest in Ely, MN. The path is relatively easy and can be extended to include the portage trail between Garden and Fall Lakes. The round trip hike is under two miles and some of our guests chose to pack a picnic basket and swim at the nearby Fall Lake beach. We encourage you to bring a snack and drinks for your family and don’t forget your camera and binoculars; the waterfalls are beautiful. Adventurous jumpers can be seen along the cliff ledges that jut out from 3 to 20 feet above the surface of these waters. The watershed drains from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) and flows 2,000 miles north to Hudson Bay.
Northern Lights Adventures – Sunset Cruise
Our sunset cruises have become a real favorite of our guests. It acquaints you with Bear Island Lake. Any time possible we swing by one or more of the nesting bald eagle sites, hoping to see these majestic creatures. This is a laid-back cruise, which brings us to the center of Bear Island Lake just a few moments before another glorious sunset.
Plan to bring a beverage, a blanket and a camera. Capture some great photos with your family during this cruise. Your Facebook friends will love it.
