Fly to Sault Ste Marie

Sault Ste Marie is located on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and visitors will find numerous recreational opportunities here throughout the year. During the summer, you can take a fishing charter or kayak on Lake Superior before going for an invigorating hike in the wilderness. Skiing is a popular activity in the winter months, and the area is home to excellent snowmobile trails.


The city is an outstanding place to explore the history of the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes region.

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum highlights the area's maritime past. If you want to experience more of the local landscape, go on the Agawa Canyon Train Tour. This one-day trip travels more than 100 miles past the rivers and lakes of northern Michigan.
