ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Learn about the history and culture of the Wisconsin Northwoods and experience its stunning natural beauty. In the 20,000-acre Sylvania Wilderness, hike through magnificent old-growth forests home to 200-year-old eastern hemlock, yellow birch and sugar maple trees as professional naturalists interpret all you see. Pay visits to a logging and Civilian Conservation Corps museum and a re-created Ojibwe village, and experience the world's largest mechanical-globe-style planetarium. Canoe with loons and bald eagles on pristine waters, take a pontoon ride on the Eagle River and do much more on this fascinating adventure.


• Walk atop a mat of floating vegetation in a bog and investigate this unique wetland ecosystem.
• Walk the Franklin Lake Nature Trail with expert naturalists, winding through the Nicolet National Forest to observe nearly every habitat type found in the area.
