Northwoods Adventures offers thrilling Whitewater Rafting trips in the south central Upper Peninsula. In 2019 we partnered with True North Outpost near Piers Gorge Rapids south of Norway, Michigan providing the highest quality Upper Peninsula experience. All rafting adventures leave from the True North Outpost. Walk-ins are always welcome, but we recommend a reservation as rafting is a popular summer adventure and space is limited.

RENTALS: Canoes, Kayaks, Stand-Up Paddle Boards, and Mountain Bikes
