Dog Sledding, North Shore, The Dog Days of Winter along the North Shore

We just came off one of the busiest weekends throughout the North Shore. There were quite a bit of people visiting Two Harbors, MN, and the surrounding Duluth area. This past weekend had everything from a fun Winter Village, youth hockey tournaments, to the lighted display at Bentleyville, USA. Winter along the North Shore of Minnesota doesn’t slow down and neither does Superior Shores Resort.

We’re here as your home base this winter season while you enjoy fun winter related activities all throughout the Northland.

One hidden gem along the shore is dog sledding. This wintertime activity is super fun and you can get a taste of what it’s like to mush.

It’s time to MUSH!

Here in Two Harbors, we have Silver Creek Sled Dogs which has full and partial day trips for you to enjoy. The most popular ride is an hour long and there is no experience required to try out dogsledding. With this sled dog company close to Betty’s Pies, make sure you stop by for a yummy treat before heading back to the cozy comforts of Superior Shores.

Coming up in January, Two Harbors, MN, hosts the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. In 2017 the marathon will take place on January 29th. John Beargrease was the son of a Chippewa Chief in Northern Minnesota. He most known for his mail delivery runs from 1887-1900. During this time he hiked, sailed, rowed and traveled by dog sled to deliver mail from Grand Marais all the way to Two Harbors. In honor of his life, this fantastic marathon runs every year. You can stop by, meet the mushers, and see the dogs that will be running the race. It’s a great winter event along the north shore and perfect for all ages.

Experience the North Shore during the winter for an unforgettable getaway. No matter what activity you choose, we’re looking forward to seeing you this winter season at Superior Shores Resort. Whether you’re traveling near or far, the comforts of our suites will keep you warm on those dreary winter nights.
