Itinerary

Day 1 (Tuesday):

You will fly into the Duluth International Airport and be met by your guide who will transport you and your luggage to your hotel. The rest of the day can be spent exploring the city of Duluth - it’s lakefront parks, museums, and restaurants. Your bikes will be ready for you when you arrive so you can explore the city with a self-guided ride.

Day 2 (Wednesday) [Mission Creek to Spirit Mt.]:

After a light breakfast at your hotel, you will be picked up and transported to the birthplace of the American Fur Trade in Fond du Lac where you’ll begin your ride on The Duluth Traverse. You’ll ride along the St. Louis River and explore flowing trails, gentle climbs, and thrilling descents before traversing the Duluth ridge line to Spirit Mountain. You’ll stop at mid-day for a picnic lunch and you can opt to continue your ride or return to Canal Park if you prefer.

Day 3 (Thursday) [Spirit Mt. to Brewer Park]:

You’ll resume your ride at Spirit Mountain and learn some of the local history of the Native Ojibwa and Dakota tribes. On this section of The Duluth Traverse you’ll navigate across picturesque streams and awe-inspiring views of the St. Louis River Estuary. After lunch you’ll be able to relax on your own in Canal Park or venture out on an optional ride to the end of the world’s largest freshwater bay-mouthed sand spit - Minnesota Point. That evening you’ll have a chance to add a sunset kayak tour in the Duluth Harbor - the best way to end a perfect Duluth day.

Day 4 (Friday) [Piedmont to Twin Ponds]:

On day 4 you’ll explore some epic single track following Duluth’s famous Skyline Boulevard. This section of The Duluth Traverse will show you why Duluth has become the #1 adventure town in America. Our van will meet you at Twin Ponds, a historical watering hole for horse-drawn carriages, and take you to one of Duluth’s best restaurants for a home-cooked lunch in a unique American diner. After lunch you’ll have an option to explore more single track or hop aboard The Duluth History & Sightseeing Bus Tour. That night you’ll be able to add an all-inclusive craft beer brewery tour or relax on a patio in Canal Park.

Day 5 (Saturday) [Hartley to Hawk Ridge]:

After breakfast you'll return to The Duluth Traverse and continue your single track adventure in one of Duluth’s premier community parks. At mid-day you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch at the Hartley Nature Center and have time to learn about the natural history of The Northwoods with you guide. Then it’s back to the trail for a thrilling ride to Hawk Ridge - the home of North America’s most epic hawk migration viewing location.

Day 6 (Sunday) [Hawk Ridge to Lester Park]:

Today is the last day of your adventure and you’re going to love the flowing single track trails along the Lester River. Snap some amazing photos and descend to Lake Superior where you’ll have time to skip rocks and take a dip in the world’s largest freshwater lake. After lunch you’ll have time to celebrate your bike tour and relax or enjoy a night on the town with your new friends.
