Take your wedding party underground and experience the fascinating history of the copper mining industry that brought tens of thousands of immigrants to the region. The Quincy Mine offers year-round underground tours. During the winter, tours can be scheduled by appointment by calling 906-482-5569.
To accompany your underground mine tour, we recommend heading to the Keweenaw National Historical Park Headquarters and Visitor Center. Located in downtown Calumet, the KNHP Headquarters offers a free interactive museum that provides a glimpse into what life was really like for miners and their families from the start of the copper mining boom until the last mine closed. The Headquarters is open year-round but limits its hours to Thursdays-Saturdays in the winter months.
Summer is the time to explore and enjoy lush Keweenaw forests and miles-upon-miles of Lake Superior shoreline. This is why we love a good summertime wedding. With so many activities to choose from, your wedding party will have no shortage of adventure.
For your guests who love adventure, Keweenaw Adventure Company offers guided mountain bike tours. They provide all the gear necessary to hit the trails in Copper Harbor and are happy to show you the ropes if its your first time. If your group wants to slow things down, Keweenaw Adventure Co. also offers guided sea kayaking tours in Lake Superior. This is a great way to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Keweenaw on a warm sunny day.
If you're in the Houghton- Hancock area, consider a relaxing pontoon cruise with Keweenaw Boat Tours or take a historic tour of the Portage Canal with Copper Country Boat Tours.
