Sail on the Hjørdis
Sail on the Hjørdis

North House Folk School | Grand Marais MN

The flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis shares the name of the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip on this 50’ traditionally-rigged steel schooner and gain access to both the largest lake in the world and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.

The 2019 sailing season has begun! Even better than watching her from the shore is spending time aboard out on the water

Try the 2-Hour Daily Sail, or Friday and Saturday Sunset Sail!
