Snow in the pines Jim Jarvis PCWinter at Pelican Lake

Blue skies and snow in the evergreen boughs beckon you to experience the out-of-doors in the undiscovered frozen north. Whether it is snowmobiling the “Undiscovered Yellowstone” of the Midwest on the Voyageur Snowmobile Trail System, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing or just enjoying the peace of a snowy day in a pristine setting, winter is truly one of the most magical seasons to visit Orr and Pelican Lake.

Look upward at the winter night sky and you will find a spectacular display put on by a virtual blanket of stars. The lack of artificial light makes it possible to view the stars and planets in their full glory and makes finding constellations fun. Don’t forget to bring along a wish or two, as shooting stars are common and should the Aurora Borealis choose to perform during your visit, you will leave with a memory of a lifetime. A winter Northwoods vacation is all you could wish for.
