Custom Outdoor Adventure Guided Tours
We offer 4 types of outdoor adventure guided tours in the Cable Area, 2 Day Trips, an Over-Nighter, and a 2-Nighter, all of which can be tailored to any ability and interest so you can enjoy beautiful places you will not find on your own while having fun with your own small/private group! Our Day Trips are either half-day (3.5 hrs.) or full-day (7 hrs.), our Over-Nighter is two full-day tours w/ a camp out, and our Two-Nighter is geared towards those traveling more than a few hours to the Cable Area. We are available to guide with your reservations made in advance, we guide during both day and night hours, and we can lead half-day tours during any season. If you are looking for accommodations, feel free to ask, we are more than happy to provide recommendations.

Why Fat Tire Bikes?
Simple, versatility and stability. Wide wheels on bikes not only can be ridden over most types of terrain under most weather conditions (with a couple simple component switch-outs), they create more rider stability and are thereby safer, flat out enhancing your experience! We custom fit you on one of our Borealis Flume Fatbikes and provide you with a Specialized helmet as a part of your guided tour since we know a good fit and quality equipment matter.
It is the traditional Northwoods mode of transportation, and canoe is a great way to explore lakes and shoreline. Tranquility in the glide, rhythm in the dip of the bow paddle, peace in the silence, and unchanged idyllic shoreline scenary are why folks canoe Up North. Canoe can certainly be done solo, but paddling together as a small group provides great family/friend bonding opportunities as swimming spots and places to explore abound. Canoe is also a great way to disconnect from the everyday and re-connect with those closest to you. Native roots, centuries of travel, and modern materials and technology are at your finger tips.
Because they are the most accessible, purest form of silent backcountry travel that leaves no trace once the snow melts. Our snowshoes have great easy-on/easy-off bindings that stay taut in the deepest of Northwoods’ snow! Using our Tubbs snowshoes/poles/gaiters, coupled with your layered clothing, you are ready to access routes with us and take in great views deep within the untracked backcountry of Cable, WI. This is a great way to get your group to places most people don’t get to see with NO IMPACT!!!
