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. They are located in the Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan and are home to 160 Alaskan Huskies.  You'll also 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.  Join MSU alumnus, Steve Tchozeski of Great Lakes Geoscience, and learn about the geologic formation of the shoreline of the Upper Peninsula as you explore the Eben Ice Caves, Munising Falls, and/or the ice caves of Grand Island National Recreation Area.  These tours are limited to 10 people, so sign up early.

“This is an absolute "must do" trip if you like dogs and have any desire to try dog sledding. This tour far exceeded our expectations...we could not have been more pleased with all the activities, the food, the lodging, everything!!"  Jerry & Denice Stoecker
