NORWAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - A whitewater rafting and adventure company in Norway Township is preparing for the unofficial start to summer.

Northwoods Adventures, a division of True North Outpost, is already training new guides to take people on trips through the Piers Gorge area.

The company says around 3,500 customers did whitewater rafting and other adventurous activities last year despite the pandemic. This summer, one of the co-owners, Nate Alwine, hopes the outcome will exceed last year’s turnout.

“There are a lot of side effects of closing yourself off,” Alwine said. “Getting out in the sunshine and having an adventure is like adding a little bit of color to life. I’m hoping we give a lot of great experiences to people.”

The first booked trip is scheduled for May 22nd. However, the business is also accepting earlier bookings.
