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.

Our Green Adventures trip to the Baja peninsula and the Sea of Cortez was awesome. Tara, Fun Baja and the crew had everything organized and planned well. The educational experiences and interactions with nature were truly special. We had so much fun we can't wait to go again. Thank you Green Adventures.

The Baja Sur Mexico adventure was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I would strongly recommend for anyone. The crew and guides are wonderful at what they do. They are very knowledgeable and yet have the best personalities. The chefs made delicious meals 3 times a day and the restaurants we went to were clean and great too. The entire trip we felt safe and secure. I read every review about the trip ahead of time and they are all accurate. That is why Green Edventures is a 5 star!

Neysa!!! Thank you for the glowing review. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am happy that your first adventure with Green Edventures is the start of many more. (Tara)

It was incredible! Baja is beautiful, and camping on the beach was the most amazing thing ever. The interactions with the whales, the whale sharks, the sea lions.... everything was just so cool. Green Edventures (this is my second trip) does a great job of planning and coordinating logistics, providing necessary info, and basically, they do everything to make their trips perfect. The food is always great and lots of it, the local staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and of course, Tara the owner is fantastic. Additionally, I find that these trips attract a really interesting group of smart, self-sufficient women who are a pleasure to get to know. Both trips I have gone not knowing anyone else, and at the end, you have a whole new set of friends. If you want to go places, and don't have a travel buddy, Tara's trips would be perfect for you.

I had a great time on this trip! It was exciting to have 31 dogs out on the trails! The scenery in the Wisconsin Northwoods is peaceful, calming, and beautiful. Food and accommodations were great. The cabins are very cute and well appointed - they made for a relaxing end to our busy, exciting, fun-filled days.

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?
