WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FOR THIS ADVENTURE.
2023 Northwoods Getaway
Sunday Sept 17 – Friday Sept 22
The annual 4Xploring™ NorthWoods Getaway is a 5 day, Monday through Friday, relaxing adventure style event. We will meet at the 4Xploring booth at the Keweenaw Overland Adventure Retreat KOAR, located just outside of Copper Harbor, Michigan at Trails End Campground at 12:00 PM on Sunday for a driver’s meeting, where we will introduce everyone, check gear and get acquainted.
Dat’s in da U.P. eh? The diversified trails offered on this getaway adventure consist of scenic back country gravel roads and 2-tracks, magnificent views of Gitchigumi (aka Lake Superior) and unforgettable fall colors.
Let us tell you a little bit about what you are getting yourself and your Jeep into. On this adventure we will travel on state highways that crisscross and intersect the backcountry roads and trails on which we will be traveling to getaway and relax. This can mean road speeds up to 65 MPH, but for the most part we will be casually traveling at a much slower pace in da woods. We will be camping in the backcountry of the U.P. of Michigan, and moving Eastward until we hop on a ferry to explore the trails on Drummond Island. You can expect average high temperatures between 50 & 70+ °F and average lows between 30 & 50 °F: be prepared for all weather conditions.
Spending time in the north woods is always relaxing, but if you are looking for a little more adventure, or even the tale of a lifetime, keep a watchful eye out and you could spy a Sasquatch or possibly the more elusive Snipe… The 4Xploring™ team has put together a unique experience for you along the shores of Lake Superior. Join us while we make memories of a lifetime, we look forward to showing you some of the amazing places and scenery da North Woods has to offer.
Please submit your request as soon as possible as Fall color viewing in the upper Midwest is very popular and lodging will be an issue to secure.
