Sailing on the Hjørdis

Sailing on the Hjørdis

Easy  |  APPROX. 1 HOUR
Departs from the North House Folk School in Grand Marais
Sail on Lake Superior aboard a traditionally-rigged 50' schooner! Experience both the largest lake in the world and Grand Marais Harbor from the water.

What to Bring

Print or show your confirmation email on your phone at check-in. Please bring a mask that is comfortable to wear for the duration of the sail. You are welcome to bring snacks and beverages along.

What to Know

Lifejackets for adults are provided. If you are bringing a young person who weighs less than 50 lbs, you will need to provide your own PFD. Sailing could be canceled 30 mins before departure due to weather - so plan to enjoy time in Grand Marais if your sailing tour gets canceled at the last minute. If the tour is canceled due to weather, you will receive a full refund. Please dress warm—out on the lake, the temperature is usually 10 degrees cooler than on land. There is an outdoor waiting area on the dock under the timber frame. The Captain/Crew will meet you there for the check-in procedure—do not check-in at the Yellow House. Dogs are not allowed.
