7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Challenging
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.
The dense forests of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Wisconsin conceal diverse wildlife and more than 1,500 lakes. Become familiar with this region on naturalist-led hikes among its spectacular natural resources. Learn about and see live education raptors up close, tread the old-growth forests of the region’s lake trails, and paddle on tranquil Silver Lake. Human perspectives on this remote corner of the U.S. emerge in discussions of its mining and logging heritage and in hands-on study of forest management techniques.


Highlights

• Get a first-hand look into forestry at Wisconsin's first red pine plantation study site.
• Search for loons and Bald Eagles during a canoeing excursion with a naturalist.
• Venture into the Northwoods bog habitat, and encounter dramatic geology during hikes in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
