On Location

Located in lake country south of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, the Aurora Summit is surrounded by beautiful state parks and scenery, including lighthouses, rivers, waterfalls, and palisades. With a day pass to the state parks system, guests can take advantage of all the parks during the day.

Activities after hours include everything from Aurora Chasing and DIY Light Painting to Night Sky Photography. On Saturday night, we walk out to the beach located near the hotel to enjoy the night sky and take photographs. If possible, we light a bonfire to keep everyone warm. Pack for cold temps, bring camera gear with safe storage, pack a laptop for photo editing if desired, and plan to be out late, immersed in the wonders of the night sky!

Sunrise or sunset over Lake Superior is a must! Find a good view on the many beaches in the area, and these sunrises and sunsets are sure to amaze you. Whether you’re a photographer or not, don’t miss it!
