- Air tour hosted by Sawtooth Aviation
- Fine dining at The Strand at Lutsen Resort

We invite you to come north for the ultimate North Shore adventure! The lucky winners will check into the cozy Mountain Inn located at the base of the Lutsen Mountains Summer and Ski resort for a two night stay in a Jr. King suite.
Book your massage at either of LutZen Reflection’s beautiful and convenient locations at Mountain Inn or on East Bay Lake Superior in downtown Grand Marais. Step into your Zen with a customized 90 Minute Hot Stone Massage and a choice of our Buddha Head Scalp treatment or the Aveda Enlighten Your Soles foot and lower leg treatment, then cozy up and take in the magical views of Lake Superior at the Grand Marais spa or in front of the fireplace at the Lutsen location while indulging with champagne and chocolate.
Once you’ve found your Zen, go get your thrill on with a 30-minute airplane ride with Captain Mike or John at Sawtooth Aviation at the Grand Marais Airport. Experience the magic from the air: take in the whole of the beautiful surrounding boreal forest, Lake Superior, waterfalls and gorges and more. Lucky folks sometimes even get to see a moose!
Ready for fine dining? Enjoy the The Strand located at the iconic Lutsen Resort on the shore of Lake Superior. The menu consists of a strong blend of contemporary and traditional North Shore Cuisine items. The temperature-controlled wine cellar holds 1,200 bottles of international and local fine wines. They carry 20 wines from the Wine Spectator Top 100 list, including the #1 wine.
Dip your toe into an art experience. Explore the foundry process of bronze and aluminum metal casting at the Mueller Studio. The group will spend time carving a relief composition into a bonded sand mold and then Greg will work his magic and pour metal into the patterns to create one-of-a-kind relief sculptures. Pieces will cool and can be taken home the same day.
