Back to Isle Royale National Park Tour Page

On Day 1 you will be picked up in Houghton and shuttled to Marquette, but not without some beautiful hikes along the shores of Lake Superior and on Sugarloaf Mountain. We will enjoy Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Day 2 with a hike on the Chapel Loop, giving us expansive views of Lake Superior (11 miles). Tonight’s stay will be in Marquette.

On Day 3 we shuttle to Copper Harbor with several stops along the way for some excursions to waterfalls and coastlines, including a possible section on the North Country Trail which runs through the Upper Peninsula.

Day 4 begins with a boat ride to Isle Royale where we will be for the rest of the tour. We will hike Stoll Trail Loop upon our arrival and enjoy the island atmosphere.

Day 5 starts with a water taxi to Hidden Point, where we will hike to Lookout Louise, up to Mt. Franklin via Greenstone Ridge,  and return to the lodge on the Tobin Harbor Trail.   On Day 6 we will taxi to Daisy Farm and take the Rock Harbor Trail back to the lodge.

On Day 7, our final day, there will be options to rent a canoe or kayak, to walk the Three Mile campground loop, or just sit back and enjoy the island’s beauty. After lunch, we will board the boat back to Copper Harbor and then drive back to Houghton and the conclusion of our Isle Royale National Park hiking trip.
