“Why visit the Upper Peninsula?” People asked us this question. Well, to be quite honest, we weren’t sure. We were drawn to explore this partially off-the-grid area of the country. Untrammeled beauty, a land of “wonderful wilderness” is what we found in the Upper Peninsula. We found white sand and driftwood dotting the lakeshores of crystal-clear turquoise water. As well as heavily forested woodlands leading to dramatic waterfalls. We found uncongested roads along with quaint, welcoming towns. R-tinerary found the Upper Peninsula is an unspoiled place of solitude and wonderment not to be missed.
Our 9-day guide begins on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. Enjoy the amazing taste of the Michigan cherries. Climb sand dunes well above 100 feet high spying the ‘Big Lake’. And enjoy local whitefish while watching sailboats meander across the bay.
Spend time on the ever-popular Mackinac Island where motorized vehicles are prohibited. While strolling or biking along paths, learn why this island was important to fur trade and the American Revolutionary War. Enjoy a delicious dinner overlooking Haldimand Bay. Similarly, indulge in mouthwatering fudge.
Drive over the “Mighty Mac” spanning the Straits of Mackinac connecting the Lower and Upper Peninsulas of Michigan. Here the land is dense with forests, the daylight stretches well past 10:00 PM and wildlife outnumber the population, by a lot!
Next, hike “Root Beer Falls” known for the color of the water cascading over a 50-foot drop. And stay in a cozy log cabin overlooking the Carp River.
Kayak to colorful cliffs shaped by wind and water that continue to mold the shoreline of Lake Superior. Taste the best pasties in the Upper Peninsula. Furthermore, hike to a panoramic view of the vast, rugged forests of this beautiful part of the country.
Ride a ferry to a secluded island for a day of mountain biking. While enjoying a white sandy beach, aquamarine waters and not a soul in sight.
Next, drive further northwest to an area of the Peninsula, which is truly off the grid. Walk along 600-year-old pines, pick fresh thimbleberries savoring the tartness and relish the unobstructed view from Mount Baldy.
Lastly, climb the highest point of the Porkies before ending the trip in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
