You could call Isle Royale National Park a proving ground to test an outdoors enthusiast's mettle. You can't take your car or bicycle there, and you'll have to travel by water or plane, so you're going to have to leg it anywhere you go on the island. Canoeing and kayaking are options, though experience and skill are needed, as the waters on Lake Superior can be dangerous. If you don't believe that, you can find proof by scuba-diving and seeing the remains of numerous sunken ships in the chilling depths of the surrounding waters, the permanent resting place of unfortunate vessels.
Then, after you've put yourself to the test, award yourself with a small trophy—this lapel pin depicting one of the island lighthouses. Even if you don't take on the challenges of the Isle, it makes a nice gift for any fan of the national parks.
