Mountain Tram

Mountain Tram

You won’t find a better vantage point from which to view the Sawtooth Mountains and Lake Superior’s dramatic coastline. This aerial tramway is one of the North Shore’s most popular attractions, taking you on a scenic ride to the top of Moose Mountain, rising 1,000 feet over Lake Superior. The gentle ride at treetop level is an experience not to be missed if you’re visiting the North Shore, here’s why:

  • It’s the only transportation of its kind in the Midwest: ruffed grouse, eagles, pine marten, deer, bear, timber wolves, and moose have all been spotted from the tram; ride over the curving Poplar River and up Moose Mountain for unbelievable views of Lake Superior and the surrounding area.
  • Stop at the Summit Chalet at Lutsen Mountains, a beautiful mountaintop chalet welcoming guests for gorgeous views, relaxation, lunch, snacks, and beverages. Inside and outside deck seating is available overlooking Lake Superior.
  • Enjoy the mountaintop hiking trails, scenic overlooks, and fresh air. The Mountain Tram makes Moose Mountain the most attainable year-round mountaintop destination in the Midwest.
