Float by natural and man-made wonders on the world’s most beautiful ferry rides.

Minnesota & Michigan: Between Grand Portage inMinnesota and Isle Royale National Park in Michigan in Lake Superior

21 of 34

Wolves, moose, river otters, beavers, red foxes, red squirrels, minks, and martens all make the isolated north woods of Isle Royale their home, and passengers circling the designated biosphere-reserve wilderness island on the M. V. Voyageur II might get lucky and spot some of these rugged animal survivors. The two-day ferry voyage makes eight stops where passengers can get off for a closer look. This is not a boat for cars—the only modes of transport in the roadless park are hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, and kicking back on the ferry that plies these chilly waters.
