Trip Description

Escape to the northwoods this summer on our Door County Inn-Based Paddling Adventure! This trip, to the well-known and beloved Door County, WI will give the participant a perfect mix between paddling adventure, magnificent scenery, sight-seeing and relaxation.

During the weekend, our possible day trips will vary depending on the weather. If the wind and waves are calm, we’ll head out on Lake Michigan and in the bay. Sandy beaches, clear waters, fascinating rock formations and towering forests highlight this paddling adventure. After a day of paddling, participants will have the opportunity to explore the "touristy" side of Door County, while having the comfort of staying at an inn each evening.

The Geneva Kayak Center’s Inn-Based Paddling Trips are designed for the adventurer looking to experience touring destinations of unparalleled scenic beauty, with the comfort of inn or lodge accommodations, fine dining and leisurely paddling itineraries. Our ACA instructors and BCU coaches are the perfect guides for these trips and will make your adventure truly remarkable! The paddling itineraries for these trips are designed for the beginning paddler, but will be enjoyed by the kayak enthusiast!

This trip is rated a GKC Level 2 trip. Participants on this trip should be able to paddle confidently at a beginner level as outline in our ACA L2 or BCU 2 star trainings. Participants DO NOT need to have their L2 or 2 Star awards, but rather should have taken our ACA L2 training or BCU 2 Star training class and feel comfortable with the skills taught in that class.
