      About this trip

      Offered in partnership with the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program

      This 5 day kayak/camping adventure will take you on and around Isle Royale National Park, known for it's pristine wilderness, rustic camping, and the famous moose and wolves! The group will receive  guided kayaking and fully outfitted camping accommodations.  


      Isle Royale National Park preserves 132,018 acres of federally designated wilderness. According to the National Park Service, around 11,000 years ago, two miles of ice pressed down on Isle Royale, sculpting its topography. This same ice sheet formed Lake Superior and hundreds of inland lakes, ponds, and bogs. Isle Royale is home to 18 mammal species including fox, wolves, moose, otter, and beaver. Diversity of habitat makes the island a great bird watching location. Woodpeckers, gulls, herons, wrens, and sandhill cranes are a few of the birds you’re likely to see. 

      The ecological study of wolves on Isle Royale is the longest running large mammal predator-prey

      study on earth.

      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.

      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!

      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!

      Wow, what an adventure. This was my 9th trip with Green Edventures and Tara does not disappoint. We saw humpbacks, dolphins., porpoises, sea lions, seals, orcas, and grizzles in addition to sea birds. We learned why not to eat farm raised salmon. The sea kayaking was amazing, food delicious, and cormoradory delightful. I highly recommend this trip or any other Green Ed trip. I would do it again.

      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?
