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.
Nature’s Kennel Wellness Statement: As we all navigate through the new reality of Coronavirus, Nature’s Kennel is fortunate that there have been very few cases of COVID19 in our county thus far and in the Upper Peninsula as a whole. As there is always a risk anytime you leave home, we have adjusted our practices, policies, and procedures to maintain a low risk environment for all our guests, staff, and family. While no one can totally eliminate the risk of the virus, will do our best to adapt to these challenging times and continue to provide an exceptional vacation experience. The majority of this trip takes place outside with a small group and during any inside programs or meals there is adequate spacing for individual tables.
