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.

The Yellowstone trip was AMAZING! To have the opportunity to watch (and HEAR!!!) a pack of 18 wolves was incredible! The guides were knowledgeable and fun - a great combination. Do yourself a favor and see Yellowstone in the dead of the winter - the wildlife viewing is very much alive! Thanks Tara/Green Edventures for another trip of a lifetime!!
My third trip with Green Edventures! The guides were fantastic. We traveled with 2 guides. One American and one local who were both very knowledgeable and fun. All of our accommodations were really cool, and the food was great. Each day held the promise of a magical experience, and I was not disappointed! Countless Dolphins, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, Scarlet macaws, and so many other kinds of birds. I had a wonderful time, met some new friends and can't wait until I get to go on another Green Edventure.
Just returned from the Northwoods Women's edventure trip and it was spectacular! The scenery was magnificent, the accommodations cozy and the daily activities were varied, informative and exhilarating! I cannot say enough about the two naturalists at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Licia and Annie, who took care of all the myriad details, including last minute schedule changes to accommodate weather updates. Also, the speakers and recreation guides were passionate and truly engaged the group in the history and ecology of the area. I even got to experience the thrill of riding an E-bike! I highly recommend this marvelous, colorful trip, especially if you live in an area where autumn can be subtle.
This trip had just the right amount and variety of activity. Loads of fun in a beautiful place! Who knew there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?

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?
