Daily Sailing on Lake Superior
Flagship of the Grand Marais Harbor, Hjørdis is named after the mythical Norse goddess of war. Take a trip aboard this 50’ traditionally-rigged schooner and experience Grand Marais as it was approached in the centuries before Highway 61 — from the water.
Our full sailing schedule through the end of August is now available! This year we’re also offering sunset sails on select dates, as well as special event sails aboard visiting vessel Abbey Road during Wooden Boat Show, June 22nd.
