Where is Apostle Islands National Lakeshore?
Located 380 km from Minneapolis, Minnesota, the region covers 1,165 km2 and 21 islands in Lake Superior and offers a wide range of leisure activities, from colorful birds in the sky to spectacular sea caves.
The best place to start your trip is Bayfield, a picturesque lakeside town where many tours to the nearby islands, as well as boat tours and hiking trails start. The Apostle Islands are a popular bird-watching destination. Hardly any other place in the Great Lakes region has as many migratory birds as you can see here. Pack your binoculars and keep an eye out for over 300 species of birds, including eagles, hawks, sandpipers, owls and sparrows.
From here, take the ferry to La Pointe on Madeline Island, the only inhabited island in the Apostle Islands. Don’t worry, your car also has space on the ferry. This runs from March or April until the water of the lake freezes over in Winter. You can reach the other islands by private boat or water taxi or as part of a boat tour.
