      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.

      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.

      Very excited to have been a part of this wonderful trip. The weather conditions were perfect with 10” of fresh snow for dog sledding and snowshoeing. Our tour guide, Lori, was professional and personable, she ensured that every part of the tour ran smoothly. This was a fabulous experience and I highly recommend this trip.

      This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Our schedule was full with a well thought out itinerary that still afforded time to do your own things. I would caution that while the Ausengate Trek was not technical, it does require some pre-training to increase lung capacity and muscle strength. I would also advise that the high altitude medication should be a requirement!!! Nothing can prepare you for altitude sickness and it can put a damper on this amazing experience. The hike via the Inca Trail into Machu Picchu was my favorite. It was so spiritual and magical. Thanks Tara Short and Green Edventures for this amazing adventure that I will never EVER forget!!

      This trip was a fantastic adventure. The staff was professional, knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend it to anyone.

      Rafting 80 miles on the Main Salmon River was my first experience with Green Edventures. They are a top-notch company and I hope to join them for another trip. Everything from registration to the beginning our trip months later was handled very professionally and expediently. Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They have been in the adventure travel business long enough to work out the kinks and deliver a smooth and outrageously fun trip.

      Iceland is a beautiful country and Green Edventures is a wonderful way to visit and experience many Icelandic adventures. From hiking to waterfalls, riding Icelandic horses, kayaking and beautiful beaches, the group was a terrific mix of like minded women sharing their enthusiasm for exploring the world. Needless to say, I had a great time! Thora, our Icelandic guide, was delightful! Diana Lyster

      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?
