Full Itinerary

August 4-9, 2024

Dip your toes in sparkling fresh water with a visit to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, which boasts more than 4,000 lakes scattered along rugged coastlines and rock outcroppings, peaceful forests and complex wetlands that host an incredible array of wildlife. On this journey, experience the unparalleled beauty of Lake Superior’s shores. Starting in Marquette, explore the coast to its northernmost point, which projects into Lake Superior and carries the moniker of Copper Country to mark its prominence in the first U.S. mining boom in the 1800s. From the rocks below to the sky above, this adventure promises to provide insights into places many visitors don’t experience.


  • Hike beneath dramatic granite clifftops at TNC’s Echo Lake Nature Preserve.
  • Take to the sky on a sea plane with remote, wildlife-filled Isle Royale National Park as your destination.
  • Set out on a kayaking adventure to explore quality sandy beaches and wetlands along Lake Superior.
