Keweenaw Water Trail Tours
The Keweenaw Water Trail is a designated route that was established for paddlers to explore the Keweenaw Peninsula. The 100-mile-plus route ultimately enables an experienced paddler to circum-navigate the “Copper Island” and offers many other options for shorter day trips and overnights. The “tip of the Keweenaw”, the northern most locale, in particular is a true uninhabited wilderness area. Over 8000-acres and nine-miles of undeveloped Lake Superior Shoreline were acquired by the State of Michigan in 2002 as a part of the largest conservation acquisition in its history and now lies in a State Forest designation. There are no facilities of any kind and camping is primitive.
Our overnight tours will highlight this geological fantasy land of various rock types, crystal-clear water, cliffs, sea caves and arches, sea stacks, the Montreal Falls, intermittent sugar-sand beaches and campsites visited by the Voyagers. All of this incredible scenery is neighbored by quaint harbor-side communities filled with the history of their maritime and mining past. The Keweenaw Peninsula is gradually being discovered and is becoming recognized as one of the premier locations for sea kayak adventures on Lake Superior.
