Resort Activities

Campfires


Available every evening, just ask at the front desk and we’ll get it started and you can keep it going as long as you like. We’ve also got the makings for S’mores available; you're never too young or too old to enjoy these traditional sticky delights!

Shuttle Service


Interested in hiking a point-to-point section of the Superior Hiking Trail? Please sign up 24 hours in advance, so we are better able to accommodate you. Call us at 218.663.6695 or stop by the Activities Desk in the Main Lodge.

Swimming Pool


Lutsen Resort has two swimming pool complexes, including hot tubs and saunas at both. Guests staying around the Lodge have access to the Lodge pool while Sea Villa guests can enjoy the pool at that site, including a splash deck.

Area Recreation

Ice Fishing


A Minnesota staple, ice fishing isn’t for the faint of heart, or it can be with the right cup of Joe! Try your luck in landing some walleyes, trout or even crappies from our inland lakes.

Shopping


Not far from your lodging at Lutsen Resort, you’ll find great shopping options. The Lutsen and Grand Marais area have attracted a wide range of artists who have chosen to live and work here, as well as businesses that reflect the unique features of the area.
