It’s hard to imagine cool, crisp autumn days in the heat of mid-August, but the brilliant fall colors of Duluth are just around the corner. One of the best and most relaxing ways to see vibrant red, orange, and golden leaves is on a North Shore Scenic Railroad ride. The six-hour journey made CNN’s “Five fabulous fall foliage train rides” list and for good reason. Sit back and take in the stunning landscape as the train hugs the sparkling Lake Superior shoreline and winds through hardwood forest glowing with color. The peak autumn season is fleeting and reservations fill up quickly, so book your seat soon!
The charming Solglimt Bed and Breakfast invites guests to enjoy our lakefront retreat during the busy fall foliage season. Wake up to a delicious breakfast, served with stunning Lake Superior views. Our tranquil location offers a quiet escape that’s still close to all the attractions. Reserve your perfectly appointed guest suite for a wonderful fall foliage vacation you’ll never forget.
Special Excursions on the North Shore Scenic Railroad
The Fall Colors Tour to Two Harbors takes passengers on a picturesque journey through Duluth, along beautiful Lake Superior and into the dazzling fall colors of the Northwoods. Midway through the ride, the trains stop at the historic town of Two Harbors. The two-hour break leaves time to shop, get some lunch and explore the town. After stretching your legs, prepare to enjoy more of the lovely landscape rolling by, until your return to Duluth. This very special way to experience the extraordinary fall foliage has limited seating available so reservations are recommended. The tours begin in September and are every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until October. Book your tour ahead of time to ensure a seat on this magical journey.
The North Shore Scenic Railroad also offers three other special tours during the fall season. Maybe adding an Elegant Dinner Train trip would make the perfect date night for you and your loved one? This two and a half-hour ride has all the same great scenery, but adds an elegant dining experience. Some of the best regional chefs create the delicious cuisine served in the grand dining car. The one-time Beer Tasting Train is scheduled for October 4th and features excellent local breweries and brewpubs. Of course, along with the two and a half hours of great scenery, it also includes fantastic brews and food. This fun ride always sells out, so book your spot today!
Return from a wonderful train journey to the peace and quiet of your luxurious room at the Solglimt Bed and Breakfast. Watch the sunset with a glass of wine from our panoramic rooftop deck. Book the most relaxing, inspiring fall foliage getaway this autumn and treat yourself to Duluth at its most beautiful.
