There’s a reason Lake Superior has been referred to as an inland ocean and you’ll discover that for yourself when you visit this immensely beautiful Great Lake. Called gichigamiing or “The Big Lake” by the Anishinaabe people of the region and known for its furious storms, the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area will soon be recognized as one of the largest protected areas of fresh water in the world.

On compare souvent le lac Supérieur à une mer intérieure. Découvrez-le par vous-même en vous rendant près de ce Grand Lac, gigantesque et magnifique. Surnommé « gichigamiing » (le Grand Lac) par le peuple Anishinaabe, ce plan d’eau est réputé pour ses violentes tempêtes. L’aire marine nationale de conservation du Lac-Supérieur sera bientôt reconnue comme l’une des plus grandes étendues d’eau douce protégées au monde.
