Up Close and Personal

Animals and birds vie with the land and water for your attention as you cruise the ancient waterways. White-tailed deer, black bears, beavers, minks, otters and moose appear seemingly out of nowhere. Bald eagles, hawks and ospreys drift silently overhead. While bird watching in Voyageurs National Park, you’ll see blue herons and snow-white pelicans swoop down to fish the shallows. Loons and cormorants briefly surface from the granite-stained waters, as if to say hello before disappearing once again.
