Things To Do

There is much to see and do on the Keweenaw Peninsula. In addition to exploring the history of copper mining, numerous recreational opportunities are available in the area. In the summer hiking, canoeing, kayaking fishing, camping and biking are popular activities. During the winter, the normally abundant snowfall make this a prime area for snowshoeing, cross-country and downhill skiing, ice fishing and snowmobiling. For information on area attractions and activities visit the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
