As the rugged wilderness of the North Shore calls, this tour offers you a breathtaking look at the shoreline from two perspectives. Starting from Portman Park, this ride gives you another dimension of this port city. Traveling on Superior Street, you will see many stately homes that housed those who financed the town’s early progress. The first part of the route allows you to ride along the scenic shore of Gitchi Gumi. With waves crashing against the jagged coastline, you will pass through several quaint fishing villages along the cruise. After lunch, in the port city of two harbors, the route takes the high road for a more panoramic view of the lake. Approaching the "Rocky Canyon River," you will have a long descent back to Lester Park before returning to Portman Park.
