Searching for a multi-week tour in the Van. Recently my attention was drawn to this Great Lakes region and wondering if it would be a good choice.

What I've been reading emphasizes using it as a resource for bicycle ventures but for health reasons not a likely option.

Would making the full loop be practical and enjoyable, assuming a start from Duluth?

Absolutely.

The stretch from Duluth north past Thunder Bay is beautiful, as is the whole Lake Superior circle tour through Ontario and Upper Michigan. Dozens of State and Provincial Parks to visit, lots of both short and long trails, waterfalls, shoreline.

Take a side trip up to the end of the Gunflint Trail and get a taste of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

I love it all, I was born and partly raised 50 miles south of there. (Duluth) My family owned a campground on the lake in Cornucopia Wi. in the 1970s so I spent a few summers there. (Today the campground has become a subdivision of high end vacation cabins I am told.) Take Wisconsin hwy 13 south of Duluth across to Bayfield Wi. and take the car ferry to check out Madeline Island. Copper Falls State Park south of Ashland Wi. was another favorite, The water has so much iron in it that the water looks like crystal clear Root beer including the foam!

Near the Lake the night time Temps can drop into the 40s, Even in August.
