Some of the Great Lakes’ best kayaking experiences await in the coves, bays and inlets of the Lake Superior National Marine conservation area. Paddle all day, then relax for the night in a welcoming B&B.

Exploring the many coves, bays and inlets of the Lake Superior National Marine conservation area by sea-kayak is one of the best adventures the Great Lakes can offer. Paddle the beautiful bays, coves and wetlands of the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area and wind your way up the tranquil, braided waterways of the Nipigon River. Gaze up at the rugged cliffsides where nesting peregrine falcons are protecting their young and see ancient First Nation pictographs on a flat stone wall. De-stress with an easy paddle around the islands of Rossport then continue the relaxation by checking into a local B&B for a delicious meal and perhaps a glass or two of wine.

Feeling adventurous? Camp overnight on one of the islands or take an ambitious paddling trip to Battle Island, home to one of Lake Superior’s most spectacular lighthouses.
