Hiking the well-marked trails right in the City of Bayfield is a great way to begin enjoying the surrounding natural splendor. Or head out into the sunny berry fields and apple orchards to pick your own sweet, juicy bounty. Explore the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and nearby state parks to get off the beaten path and discover some of the area's most breathtaking views. For a more immersive natural experience, consider camping at one of the many available island campsites.

The options on land are endless. Birding enthusiasts should also be on the lookout for the plentiful species that call the area home, including bald eagles, warblers, woodpeckers and even the occasional Peregrine Falcon. Bicycling is the perfect way to savor even more of the surrounding splendor. You'll find miles of roads and inviting trails, along with plenty of road and mountain bikes for rent. Golfers will discover challenging and scenic courses. Perched on the rising hills of the Peninsula, Apostle Highlands offers golfers sweeping views of the sparkling blue bay below.

For those who prefer to get off of dry land, Bayfield offers plenty of opportunity for relaxation and adventure! Boating enthusiasts can book a boat with a charter business, learn to sail with a private instructor or leave the sailing or boating to someone else by booking with a local captain. Fisherman will find the waters full of Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Splakes or even Steelhead and Salmon. Try kayaking out to our famous water-sculpted sea caves. Or catch the ferry over to Madeline Island or take a boat tour of the historic lighthouses on the other Apostle Islands.

Whether you're here to re-charge in one of the most beautiful natural settings on Earth, or just hunker down with a good book and savor the wide, soul-restoring vistas of the Big Lake - in Bayfield, Wisconsin, you'll discover a million things you'll want to do. And not one you have to do.
