The Hjørdis & Scenic Airplane Rides

The Hjørdis

You’ve been skirting the shore of Lake Superior for two hours to get here. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get out on the lake? Feel what it’s like to be on all that water? Reverse things and view the shoreline from the lake? An easy way to do this is aboard the 50-foot schooner, the Hjørdis, sailing out of North House Folk School on the harbor. Schooner outings are offered daily and include an overview about sailing, a tour of the harbor, and weather permitting, a sail into the big lake. The Hjørdis sails from late May through early October and is used for sailing classes, sunset sails and full moon sails, too. Stop by North House or get details online. Visit Website
