2 Days/1 Night
Skill Level: Any
Two days can be all you need to explore the Apostle Islands. Our campsite will likely be on Sand, York or Oak Island, depending upon conditions and permit availability. A few likely sights include sea caves, old growth forest, secluded beaches, and places of cultural significance such as lighthouses, restored homesteads and other remnants of the past.
Expect a 4 to 8 mile paddle to camp*. Once we're settled in we'll spend the rest of our time exploring and relaxing. The second day we may kayak over to another Island for a lunch break, or to the mainland sea caves as we paddle back to Cornucopia.

A Sample 2-day Trip Itinerary
7:30 a.m. meeting time (we promise to have coffee!)
Your first day starts off with a course in kayak skills and safety. You eat a great lunch. Then we travel to your put-in where you learn to pack your kayak and you head out to our island campsite for the night. Upon arrival you may go for a hike, help set up camp, make a fire, maybe fish... while your guide prepares dinner. Typical dinner fare may include fresh Lake Superior Whitefish, rosemary potatoes, dutch oven brownies, vegetarian stir-fry, or paella, or... (You choose your meal options during registration) Later, hug a mug of hot chocolate while you watch the stars from a cliff outcrop or curl up with a book in your tent.
The next day may begin with a morning dip in Lake Superior while Ospreys fish from overhead, time to write in your journal while sipping freshly-ground coffee, or maybe you need a warm up and take a run to the lighthouse to see the sunrise. (Or maybe you just sleep in while your guide fixes breakfast)
The rest of your trip will be spent exploring what your unique travel route has to offer; sea caves, historical sites, grand beaches, shipwrecks, wildlife and companionship.
