Winter is Cool! Enjoy a Winter Wonderland Vacation.
Winter brings a special magic to Borderland. Rainy Lake serves up picture postcard scenes and plenty of outdoor recreation. Voyageurs National Park maintains trails and ice roads so you can get out and enjoy the icy beauty. There are also trails and ice roads outside of the Park.
Minnesota Snowmobiling at its Best
Snowmobilers love riding our area because of the miles and miles of nicely groomed trails traveling through the beauty of the National Park and across the frozen surface of the large lakes. Trails interconnect to other popular areas in the Arrowhead Region so you can plan plenty of different rides. The Chain of Lakes trail on the Kabetogama Peninsula is a particularly beautiful trail.
It’s very convenient that you can access any of our Lodging facilities by snowmobile. All the Lodges on Rainy Lake are connected by trails and the Blue Ox Trail in International Falls provides easy access to all the motels. This also means you have easy access to all the trails from wherever you choose to stay for your snowmobiling vacation.
The local club sponsors events like vintage snowmobile rides, family fun weenie roasts and radar runs for charity. Check our Calendar of Events for specifics.

A Fall Vacation is Just What You Need!
With autumn, our area becomes a great vacation destination or weekend getaway. The mixed hardwoods and evergreen forests become alive with color. Tour Voyageurs National Park and soak in the vibrantly colored foliage reflecting from the shorelines and islands. Take a scenic drive on a forestry road and you might encounter some wildlife as well as brilliant red, orange and yellow leaves tempered by the more muted hues of brown and tan. Hike or Bike any of the area trails or consider exploring Koochiching County by ATV or OHV.
