About this trip

Learn the art of mindfulness while exploring stunning natural beauty by kayak on the shores of Door County, Wisconsin in the company of like-minded BOW women.

Rowleys Bay, Door County, is a community within the town Liberty Grove, sits on the edge of the Mink River Estuary, one of Wisconsin’s most diverse and important wildlife habitats. This makes Rowleys Bay a phenomenal location for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and birding, which may be why Fodor’s named it one of the 500 places to see before they disappear.

Paddling activities in nature gives us the opportunity to slow down, and refocus on the moment. So often the mind is crammed with thoughts or stresses that we miss what’s happening directly in front of us and consequently life itself. To be in the present moment, with a centered state of mind, is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and those around you. 

On our kayaking and yoga weekend for women, we have combined paddling with mindfulness (yoga) to help participants focus on living in the moment, which improves mood, reduces stress and anxiety, and results in an overall greater enjoyment of each day.

Day 1:
Arrival & Introduction to Sea Kayaking

Arrive at  by 1pm. Meet for an orientation at Rowleys Bay Resort, and then head to the lake for Sea Kayaking instruction. Learn paddling, maneuvering, wet exit, and practice your skills on a calm bay. 

After a fun afternoon on the water, experience a Door County tradition, a fishboil! Traditional fish boils are an integral part of Door County culture and have been one of the area’s most alluring tourist attractions for more than 70 years. The simplicity of the meal is enhanced by each boil master's own quirks and personal styles of boiling the fish, but in general, boilers use fresh-caught Lake Michigan whitefish and offer up Door County cherry pie to round out the meal, making this a truly authentic Door County experience.

This was the best trip ever! Green Edventures was very organized and extremely helpful with their pre-trip information. Our leader Lori Anderson was fun, fabulous, and welcoming. Our Tanzanian guides were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Because of them we were able to see all of the animals and most of them up close. They could answer all of our questions about the animals, birds, plants and cultures of the area. We visited several tribes and experienced what their daily lives are like. All of the accomodations were luxurious. This trip went beyond my expectations!

This was a bucket list trip and Green Edventures and Mantangos Expedtions knocked it out of the park! We saw more animals up close and personal then I ever expected. The guides were knowledgeable and the food and accommodations were all wonderful. I fell in love with the country and it’s people. If you get a chance to go on safari, do it!

Thank you to Green Edventures and Journeys Uganda for providing me with a "Trip of a lifetime"!! From the moment we arrived at the airport, we were treated with genuine hospitality. The lodging was comfortable and each had their own uniqueness. Food was good, and the sites that we visited were all spectacular. From seeing the Shoebills in the Swamp, to the White Rhinos at the Sanctuary, trekking for the Chimps and Gorillas in the jungle, and going on our game drives, the trip was amazing! I would recommend that if you are thinking about making this trip happen for you, GO FOR IT!!!

My trip to Uganda literally changed my life. The best experience I have ever had and it was all due to the care and planning and time invested by Tara. I can't thank you enough for giving us solo women Edventurers an opportunity to see the world. You have a customer for life. All the love, always Argie

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?
