Pedal Trolley Tours

You and some co-workers need a couple drinks after work? Know someone getting married and need Bachelor/Bachelorette party ideas? Are you on a softball team and want a little team bonding time?

Introducing the newest addition to Houghton, MI's vibrant downtown scene: the Keweenaw Pedal Trolley tour! Embark on a unique ride through this picturesque Upper Peninsula town aboard a specially crafted trolley propelled by pedal power. Our route takes you along the Houghton waterfront for approximately 1.5 hours where you'll soak in the breathtaking views of the Portage Canal and the historic architecture lining the waterfront.  So gather your friends and family for an experience unlike any other!


How it Works

The pedal trolley can accommodate up to 13 people, but we need a minimum of 6 people in order for the fun to work. It has comfortable seats and is very easy to pedal. It also has an electric assist motor for when we encounter a hill, or need a little extra power.

Great for:

-Bachelor/Bachelorette parties

-Workplace team-building

-Sports teams end of season parties

-Book club meetings

-Or just some social time with friends

We have a designated route that takes approximately 1.5 hours, including 1-2 short stops for photos and bathroom breaks. You are also welcome to bring your own food and drink on the trolley. Single serve snacks work best as we do not want to leave a trail of food behind. ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL FOR THOSE UNDER 21. SO HAVE YOUR ID READY.

Each person on the tour must sign a waiver/rules form. You can review this here
