Program #9700RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore Wisconsin's breathtaking lake country by canoe. With more than 1,300 lakes, the glaciated landscape of Vilas county has much to offer water enthusiasts on this canoeing adventure. Take several day trips to paddle many of the area's pristine lakes and remote rivers, seeing bald eagles and loons along the way. Excursions will be led by professional naturalists.


Highlights

• After a paddle on the Manitowish River, stop at Little Bohemia to explore the site of a shootout between the John Dillinger gang and local authorities. Old newspaper articles and preserved bullet holes document history.
• Investigate a northern quaking bog by walking out on the mat of floating vegetation and examining the unique plant life there.
• Explore a low-traffic, six-mile stretch of the Upper Wisconsin River before it is influenced by industry and dams — and learn canoe strokes such as backward, forward, draw, pry, rudder, sweep and J-stroke.

Activity Notes

All skill levels welcome, beginners to experts. Ability to participate in 3-5 hours of physical activity per day.

Coordinated by Trees For Tomorrow.
