There is no disputing that winter is the best in the Mighty Midwest. And spring. And summer. And fall. Heck, there’s so much going on every season we couldn’t focus on just one. From camping on balmy summer nights to exciting ice fishing contests on frozen Mille Lacs Lake, here is a must-do insider’s guide to the ten best outdoor adventures in the area.
Run on the water
Asking someone to pick his or her favorite outdoor adventure in Bayfield is like asking a parent to choose a favorite child. They are all wonderful and unique in their own way; it would be impossible to choose one over another (one could only hope). Bayfield is located 220 miles north of the Twin Cities on the shores of Lake Superior, at the furthermost tip of Wisconsin. Considered the “ Gateway to the Apostle Islands,” adventures on the open water include exciting sailing, top-notch fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, and island cruises. Adventures on the land range from hiking, biking, and golfing to birding and orchard tours. On the snow and ice, winter explorers will stay busy with ice caves, downhill and cross-country skiing, dogsledding, and ice fishing.
Two exceptionally exciting winter events in Bayfield are the Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race February 3-4 and the “Run on the Water” February 10.
