About this trip


Experience the thrill of driving your own sled team of Husky dogs in northern Wisconsin! Dip through snowy valleys, and wind through woodland trails in the wake of wagging tails, flapping tongues, and pure joy. 

Ladies, take a trek up to Northern Wisconsin for an extended weekend of outdoor winter adventures on the snowy coast of the mighty Lake Superior.  You will feel like an artic explorer as we discover the Northwoods by dogsled and snowshoes.  

"This is the real deal! " -- That what our partners have to say about their dogsledding tours. 

Their woman-owned and operated kennel is comprised of 42 Seppala Siberian Huskies which are direct descendants of Togo and Balto who helped deliver the life saving serum to the children of Nome during the outbreak of Diptheria in 1925. 

From start to finish, participants will be involved in all stages of mushing. Every trip begins with participants meeting each dog and learning about them.   Then, your guides will teach you how to harness dogs and hook up the teams. Once everyone, and every dog is ready, we head out on some of the most beautiful forested trails in Northern Wisconsin.

Not just a walk in the woods.

Led by a local naturalist and guide, participants will take on two totally different worlds by snowshoe. An introductory forest hike at sunset will immerse you into a wintery world after dark where you will uses your senses to navigate and search for signs of wildlife. On a separate adventure, participants will walk three miles on frozen lake ice to secluded ice caves. Ice caves are formed by ground water that becomes frozen when it comes into contact with cold air. As the water is pulled through the sediment it forms crystals of varying shapes and colors. 

Who should sign up?

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.   Dog sledding can be done by nearly anyone.  Snowshoeing is 3-4 hours, over level terrain, and 2-3 hours over rolling terrain at a moderate workout level. Temperatures ranging from the low 30's to below zero. Windy conditions could create extreme cold depending on wind direction. Please view the packing list below and come prepared to spend time outside in the cold.

Another well run travel trip by Green Edventures!! The weather was beautiful and scenery was even better. Tara and our guide Jeanne had a quick solution whenever a problem came up. As usual I always felt safe and had a great time with the other women in the group who enjoy traveling! :)

This was an amazing experience for my son Gregory, he truly had the best time. The whole process to book was effortless and very organized,. The trip was beautiful, so much to see and learned. My son enjoyed his accommodations, he said the food was delicious and the activities engaging and fun. He loved swimming with the sharks. Our leader Mrs. Lowe is very professional, caring and attentive to every detail. We were so lucky to have Mrs. Lowe as our leader, she knows best! This is a lifetime experience!

Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know!
Tara and Jeannie were amazing! This was an epic and well-planned trip. The food was excellent, and I loved that all the details were taken care of. I would recommend this trip to any woman who wants to travel to Alaska solo (or with a friend!) and wants to see the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.

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?
