      About this trip

      Come on up to the Northwoods in the summertime and have a fun weekend adventure on the water with a group of like-minded women on our Wisconsin Women’s Apostle Islands Kayaking Weekend.


      The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is a U.S. national lakeshore consisting of 21 islands and about 70,000 acres of shoreline. It is known for its collection of historic lighthouses, sandstone sea caves, a few old-growth remnant forests, and cultural history. For us, it is the perfect playground for adventure and exploration.


      On our Wisconsin Women’s Apostle Islands Kayaking Weekend our team will introduce participants to sea kayaking on beautiful Lake Superior. We will spend a lot of time on the water exploring both mainland shoreline and have a full day adventure out to Sand Island. Topside, we will walk on forest trails, visit a nearby orchard, and finish the adventure with a boat cruise of the Apostle Islands.


      Who should sign up on the Wisconsin Women’s Apostle Islands Kayaking Weekend?
      The trip is open to women ages 18 and older. Anyone in good health, and who is moderately active can enjoy the activities listed on the itinerary.   No previous kayaking experience is necessary. Participants must be able to swim, and be ok with paddling across open water.

      "I just got home from Apostle Island kayak with Tim. What an awesome experience. As you know,  Tim is the most amazing guide!! I can't say enough about him.  The trip exceeded my expectations from the get go. Amazing accommodations.  Great group of women. But Tim was exceptional.  He kept our safety a priority, great personality,  obviously super fit and knowledgeable. I never doubted him for a minute.

      I'm gladly giving this trip five stars. Landing in San Jose very late due to travel delays was not fun, but our tour guide Kelly met us at the hotel to give us the next days itinerary and advised us how to dress and pack. Very much appreciated. Going forward, each day was jam packed with interesting activities and our naturalist/guide Pepé was exceptional giving us wonderful information about the animals, plants and surroundings. Off-the-beaten path is a truly apt description of this trip. We explored wonderful areas of Costa Rica that an average tourist wouldn't even know existed. I can't finish my review without commenting on the wonderful women that were on this trip. Each and everyone of them brought something special to each day. And another shout out to Kelly, our group leader and Pepé our naturalist. They helped make this wonderful experience something so very special.

      Great trip! Kelly was the best leader and took care of issues and made the group more interesting and fun. Erick the naturalist lead was amazing with his photography, knowledge of flora and fauna along with natural history of the region. On top of being a very nice guy. The other women helped to make the trip. We absolutely enjoyed each and every one. La Leona was my favorite place. It is beautiful and rustic in the most perfect way. The night hike is not to be missed! Snakes and ant eaters to enjoy. I would definitely book this trip.

      This trip was spectacular. I found adventure and serenity. How can you explain to anyone a trip to Iceland with Green Edventures?? From the trip leader, to the local guide, to the food and the activities... it's something you must experience for yourself.
      By Laura H for Iceland 2023: Women's Fire, Ice, Northern Lights on Nov 20, 2023
      Thank you for all the hard work our guides put into this amazing trip! Iceland is certainly the land of fire and ice! Made many new friends!
      By Winnie G for Iceland 2023: Women's Fire, Ice, Northern Lights on Nov 20, 2023
      Once again Green Edventures does not disappoint! With trip lead Kelly and Iceland Guide Inga leading the way we were treated to spectacular views, ice adventures, geothermal relaxation, delicious food, and an overall amazing adventure. They truly went above and beyond to make sure we saw and did as much as possible with the flexibility to adjust adventures as needed. I can not recommend Green Edventures highly enough, everyone should experience the many once in a lifetime trips available!

      I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

      I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
