This tour is also available January 21-24, 2024.

This winter adventure offers you the opportunity to hook-up and drive your own dog team on a 10-mile guided dog sledding trip through the trails of Northern Michigan with MSU alumna Tasha Stielstra. With more than 150 Alaskan Huskies, Nature’s Kennel is Michigan’s premier dog sledding destination. Enjoy a bit of winter splendor with a trip to Tahquamenon Falls State Park where 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 UP’s shoreline as you explore the Eben Ice Caves and ice formations of Grand Island National Recreation area. Accommodations will be at Chamberlin’s Ole Forest Inn on Lake Manistique in Curtis, Michigan. This tour is limited to 10 people. Hiking to the ice formations includes mildly strenuous walking on slippery terrain but does not require climbing gear.
