Chequamegon Bay Tour

Island. The word is magic. In Chequamegon Bay there is an archipelago of 22 islands called the Apostles. They've always been the place to be in summer. Madeline Island was the center of the Ojibwe (Chippewa) world and thousands canoed there each year. Fur traders and missionaries followed as early as the 1660s. The appeal is just as strong today. Life and biking are easy on Madeline Island. There's nothing but the breeze to slow you. A ride to Big Bay State Park won't strain you either. No one needs an excuse to take a rest among the sculptured rocks that line the point. If you've got a mountain bike, or mountain legs, there's a challenge for you on the mainland. The Lake Superior bluffs are tough and beautiful. In spring, they are white with apple blossoms. In fall, the peninsula is spectacular in the golds, ambers, and rusts of the season. Anytime is a great time to visit Chequamegon Bay; the hills are always steep and the island is always easy.
