Biking and Paddling Adventure in the Midwest
July 31 - August 7$488 – $595
Ready for an active traveling adventure full of paddling, biking, and mindfulness to shed your work-induced stress? We are excited to offer this (mostly) unscripted adventure through the rolling hills and rivers of Southern Wisconsin in summertime. Starting in Madison, WI, the location is a reasonable drive from Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis, so you are sure to be joined with others in need of a hard-earned recalibration.
The trip is designed in tandem with our outfitter partner, Lost Travel, and its Driftless 250 itinerary — but adds Recal’s stable of mindfulness elements to produce the perfect remedy for burnout. The 7-day (8 including kick-off event the night before) adventure starts with biking in Madison, WI, shifts to paddling (solo kayak or duo canoe) on the Wisconsin River to the Mississippi River, and ends in a biking trek in the countryside (or forest hills if you’re looking for more of a challenge). You will camp along your loop route, riverside or roadside, while progressing through checkpoints of the adventure. At each checkpoint, your Recal guide will be there to lead meditations, yoga, and breathwork exercises.
Additionally, your participation in this trip will help raise money to preserve the environment: 5% of trip revenues support the River Alliance of Wisconsin to preserve the Wisconsin River for future generations.
A perfect blend of adventure, mindfulness, and immersion in nature, this is an active traveling adventure that you won’t want to miss.
Trip Cost: $595/person for solo (kayak), $488/person ($975 total) for a duo (canoe)
- July 31 – August 7, 2021 (July 31st is only the night-before kick-off event)
