The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Ice Caves

Lake Superior, Wisconsin

Made up of 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland, the Apostle Islands National Seashore is a natural beauty in any season. With more lighthouses than any other national park and outdoor adventures ranging from scuba diving to camping, it adds 1 more activity to its impressive roster in the winter, when visitors can hike on frozen Lake Superior. Icy sea caves are accessible along its sandstone cliffs, with thousands of icicles transforming the lakeshore into a veritable winter palace.
