Fun for the Entire Family

Family Opportunities

In February, 2015 the 7th Annual WolfTrack Classic Sled Dog race will run 10 dog teams from Ely to Tower to Cook, and 6 dog teams from Ely to Tower. Lake Vermilion will be the ideal location to view this race! See our calendar of events (under "Activities") for details on times and best viewing locations.

Families will find plenty of ways to enjoy the season and each other. Kids love to try ice fishing, dogsledding, snowmobiling, and skiing. How about an old-fashioned sleigh ride? Or snowshoeing? Plus, there's great family dining to be found, along with hotels and resorts with game rooms and indoor pools.

One of the hottest winter activities around is dogsledding – an experienced musher will guide you and your family on a day or overnight trip through the northwoods. This unforgettable adventure is exciting, educational and fun for everyone. Ask resort owners for more information and complete details on dogsledding packages, how to dress, what to bring and more.
