Unlike any other!
Just returned from a trip to South Manitou Island with Eric from Lyfmotiv. The journey was great…but when combined with Eric’s expert knowledge, deep experience, and gentle personality it was unforgettably amazing! Go with him. You will not regret it. He makes a great trip even better.
Inspiring Curiosity in Our Surroundings
Owner, Eric Clone, caught the travel bug at a young age and has not looked back since. He always had a passion for travel and a love for touring the world, seeing incredible sites, and learning as much as he could about the places he visited. In 2020, Lyfmotiv Adventures was founded in the hopes of inspiring others to become curious about their world. As a professional adventure guide, Eric found that working outdoors with others was not just a career, it gave him a sense of fulfillment. Out of this wealth of experience, he recognized the life-enriching effects outdoor adventures had on others too. It was a sort of “Leitmotif.”
Over years of instructing and guiding, Eric excels at helping you plan your perfect vacation. Not just any vacation, but truly exceptional trips filled with inspiring and fulfilling experiences. He wants to share his knowledge with others and encourage people to get out into nature. LyfMotiv operates out of Traverse City, Michigan. Traverse City is a unique and quaint city in northern Michigan, known for unforgettable adventures, endless active lifestyle opportunities, and outstanding food and beverage. We can’t wait to share our Fresh Coast “lyfstyle” and our passion for adventure with you!

We chose the ebike-sunset sail and to say we had a blast is an understatement! Eric is a fantastic host! We highly recommend booking – you won’t regret it!
Fun adventure in TC!
I absolutely loved riding along the tart trail on the e-bike. I enjoyed taking in the sights and riding to the lovely winery at Shady Lanes.
Great and smooth sailing around West Bay!
Had a great time sailing down and around West Bay. Smooth times and great calm water as we sailed the coast of Leelanau County. West bay is one of the best places to adventure in Michigan when you want to explore but not to get too far away from the convenances or restaurants of Traverse City.
We had the best time!
It was nice to enjoy the area at a slower pace, taking in all the details as we travelled. The E-bikes were comfortable to ride and the paved trail had some lovely views. Lake Michigan is even more beautiful when you are on the bay. In a sailboat. Our guide was very knowledgeable as well as interesting and we learned a lot. Looking forward to the next adventure already!
Can’t wait to go again!
This was the best way to experience Northern Michigan I have ever had. What an amazing adventure….water, wind, sand, biking through some of the most beautiful trails in the US! The captain, Eric is amazing. He has a wealth of knowledge and we certainly felt the experience was once in a lifetime.
Just book the trip. You don’t need to read this review.
The five-star rating says it all. It was a great trip! Lyfmotiv did an excellent job of communicating with us leading up to our day on the trail and water. Don’t pass this one up, folks! I’ll be telling people about this mini-adventure for a long time.
