The Apostles are beautiful. Be sure to go to the Visitor Center in Bayfield first, and find a cruise to take you out to the islands. I'd suggest one that you can take that gets close to one or more islands, or better yet lets you get out and explore a lighthouse or two. It's a bit off the beaten... More

We were really excited to see the islands but they are only accessible by kayaks and it is expensive so be prepared. We could not find a good view from land that was accessible to the public.

We love this place so much we would rather have it to ourselves! I like nothing more than waking up on Sand island and looking out of the tent across the lake. Better yet having Devil's island all to myself and walking up to the light house to see the caves. These are magical places that we should all feel... More

Went to view the Ice Caves and Caverns during March 2015. The entire lake superior turned out to be solid ice, we had to wear ice cleats to ensure we dont slip and break something. The ice formations were to be found along side the shore or walls. Some of them were good and some were OK types. The hype... More

Heading to the Apostle Islands is the perfect getaway! Whether you are day tripping or renting a house for a weekend or month.. you truly feel like you are in another world! The vastness of Lake Superior is only complimented by the quaintness and charm of the local flavor and flair! Take the ferry over to Madeline Island, rent a... More

This has been a favorite trip for my wife and I for the last three years. There are so many great activities in the area, there is bound to be something for everyone. We enjoy taking bike rides out on Madeline Island as well as taking in the sites on any of their scenic boat tours.
