Hike the Dunes!

You'll find plenty of self-guided hikes in the Sleeping Bear Dunes Natural Lakeshore­­--- indeed, one of the best things about the park is that it offers spectacular trails at nearly every difficulty level. But if you want to get the most out of your trip, there's nothing better than a guided tour. We've partnered with our friends at the Sleeping Bear Dunes Tour Co to offer two guided hikes this spring. Book your hike through us, and we'll provide you with 10% off of lodging, plus a 7-day pass to explore the National Park on your own.
