Easy to Get Here & Easy to Dress for

statemap.pngNational Geographic ranks our Northwoods among "the world's most beautiful places," featuring Superior National Forest and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Getting here is easy. Flights from anywhere connect through Minneapolis (or Chicago) to our Duluth airport. From there, the Ely Shuttle van will bring you to our lodge (OR car rentals from Minneapolis are cheap & the drive is scenic!)

Gearing up for your trip is easy. We'll guide you through your clothing needs and, if needed, outfit you with our rental parkas, snow pants & warm boots. OR purchase our Wintergreen Northern Wear "Made-in-Ely" 4-season jackets, pants & tops at your guest-discount pricing. We also offer warm mitts, hats, socks & thermal wear in all sizes.
