“Up North” vacations and outfitted wilderness canoe trips on Minnesota’s legendary Gunflint Trail. Nor’Wester Lodge is located on Poplar Lake at the edge of the Boundary Waters and has been hosted by the Brandt family – since 1931.
Nor’wester Lodge & Canoe Outfitters has been one of the most unforgettable Northern Minnesota vacation spots for over 80 years. Located on the historic Gunflint Trail right on the shore of Poplar Lake, Nor’Wester Lodge & Canoe Outfitters is surrounded by the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) and Superior National Forest.
This Northeastern Minnesota resort offers lakeside cabin and villa accommodations, and a campground. The location is perfect for family vacations and quiet resort getaways. The area is known for excellent fishing for walleye, lake trout, northern pike and smallmouth bass. In winter, reliable snow depth from December through March creates a premier destination for snowmobiles, with miles of groomed snowmobile trails.
We have recreation for all seasons! If you like hiking, the Nor’Wester Lodge area on the Gunflint Trial offers hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Just bring your hiking boots and your camera and explore!
