Up North Rustic Retreat- Grand Marais, MN
Join Emma and Evan for the 2022 UpNorth Rustic Retreat to connect to nature and each other!

We'll be practicing yoga, meditating, hiking, kayaking and getting to know each other for three nights on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We are back at the Hungry Hippie Hostel after an amazing experience last summer! Sleeping options include primitive tent camping, canvas tent "glamping", and private rooms for one or two.

Each day we'll start with a meditation & yoga practice, followed by some group activities, including:


A group hike along the Superior Hiking Trail exploring northern Minnesota's unique geography, numerous rivers, waterfalls, and gorges, and the Lake Superior Shoreline.

A choice of other daytime kayaking and paddle boarding excursions
