Play through the seasons.

Cavalier is located in the heart of the Rendezvous Region, an area bordering Canada and Minnesota in the northeast corner of North Dakota.

Steeped in history and natural beauty, it was established in 1878 along the winding banks of the Tongue River and is a growing community of 1500.

The four seasons allow opportunities to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities including golf, tennis, water sports, hunting, bicycling, snowmobiling and skiing.

The blend of history and tradition, with a spirit of cooperation and ongoing commitment to economic development is all part of what makes Cavalier, “The Friendly City.”

Cavlandic Trail

The Cavlandic Trail is a highly trafficked 6.5 mile paved trail that runs between the City of Cavalier and Icelandic State Park/Cavalier Country Club. 


Sand dunes are a unique geological feature seen along the Cavlandic Trail.  They were formed by wind transporting and depositing sediment derived from the Pembina Delta. The delta was formed where the ancient Pembina River emptied into glacial Lake Agassiz and deposited large amounts of sand about 9,000 to I0,000 years ago.


In addition to sand dunes; chokecherries, farmland, native prairie grasses, and pine trees can all be observed along the trail. 


If you make the trek along the entire trail you might notice the elevation change from Cavalier to Icelandic State Park –  it is approximately 119 feet! 


If you’d like to make a tax-deductible gift to be put towards the maintenance of this trail, please mail a check made payable to “Cavlandic Trail Fund” to:
