Make the most of your Hopped Up vacation by filling up your free time with adventure!
Here are some of our favorite area activities.


Caribou Highlands offers a canoe adventure trip right in our own backyard. Explore the Poplar River during a one-hour paddle. One of our guides will join your group, provide instruction and share their knowledge of the area. Additional fee applies.


Miles of both rugged and paved trails near our doorstep, on-site bike repair and washing stations, and “Cooler by the Lake” temperatures make Caribou Highlands the best basecamp for north shore biking.


This aerial gondola is one of the North Shore’s most popular attractions, taking you on a scenic ride to the top of Moose Mountain, rising 1,000 feet over Lake Superior. The gentle ride at treetop level is an experience not to be missed if you’re visiting the North Shore. Additional fee applies.


The North Shore Winery is just down the road from Caribou Highlands, and they offer tours and tastings from noon to 7pm Thursday through Sunday.


Alpine slides aren’t just for kids. Get your speed fix as you whiz down the mountain on this half-mile long alpine slide.


There’s no shortage of nearby hiking trails. Several are within walking distance of Caribou Highlands, others are just a short drive away. All of them are beautiful, and unlike anything else you can experience in Minnesota.

Play 9

Our neighbor, Superior National Golf Course, was ranked in #3 The World’s 10 Most Spectacular Golf Course Views by TravelPulse. Of course, we think they should have been ranked higher. Book your Tee Time early. Additional fee applies.


Adrenaline junkies look no further than the north shore’s must-climb destinations. Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply in Grand Marais can lead you on a guided tour to the top of an area cliff. Additional fee applies.


There is absolutely no shame in taking advantage of this mountain getaway to relax and recharge. Open your window, let the mountain air fill your lungs, and catch some well-deserved Zzzs.

While we can vouch for all of these activities’ awesomeness, they are not necessarily affiliated with Hopped Up or Caribou Highlands.
Plan ahead and schedule your adventures in advance so you don’t miss out!
