Loreen Niewenhuis Explores Great Lakes Islands

Loreen Niewenhuis

Author and adventurer Loreen Niewenhuis has explored islands in all five of the Great Lakes and covered almost 1,000 miles by boat, kayak, hiking and biking. On October 26, she and 30 fans and followers hiked the final miles on Mackinac Island, Michigan.

On this, her third adventure in her Great Lakes Adventure series, Niewenhuis explored islands in each of the five Great Lakes for a new book, A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Island Adventure, to be released in 2015.

Her previous books are A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach and A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk. “This island adventure has been more challenging than the first two,” says Niewenhuis. “I’m not just hiking this time. I have biked and kayaked part of this adventure and have had to take many boat rides to get to these islands.”
