This unique winter adventure offers you the opportunity to hook-up and drive your own dog team or take a ride with the sled dogs of Nature’s Kennel through the pristine trails of Northern Michigan. Nature’s Kennel, Michigan’s premier dog sledding destination, is owned by Michigan State alums Ed and Tasha Stielstra. Enjoy a bit of winter splendor with a trip to Tahquamenon Falls State Park where Park Naturalist and MSU alumna Theresa Neal will lead you on a snowshoe hike to the falls. Finally, join MSU Alumnus Steve Tchozeski of Great Lakes Geoscience and learn about the geologic formation of the Upper Peninsula’s shoreline as you explore the Eben Ice Caves, Munising Falls and/or the ice formations of Grand Island National Recreation area. This tour is limited to 10 people so sign up quickly.

**Note: Hiking to the ice formations includes a considerable amount of mildly strenuous walking on difficult and slippery terrain but does not require special climbing equipment or snowshoes.
