Considered by many to be a ‘miniature Boundary Waters’, the Sylvania Wilderness in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan’s Ottawa National Forest is without a doubt one of the most spectacular hidden gems in our region. Only two hours from campus, you’ll find yourself enjoying a chill weekend canoeing and camping getaway that will rival any Boundary Waters trip. Join SOEI student leaders for a weekend getaway during the best time of year for outdoor adventures—fewer people, no bugs, crisp evening campfires, and bonkers fall colors.
No previous canoeing experience necessary. All instruction, paddling and camping equipment, and meals are provided by SOEI Outdoor Pursuits.
