The ice caves that we tour are in various locations in the Apostle Islands.  We start our ice cave tours in Red Cliff, Wi where the ice forms quicker and thicker than anywhere else  in the Apostle Islands.  As the Ice Cave season progresses we may venture out to other ice cave locations that have at least 8" of lake ice. The Red Cliff Ice Caves are located on the mainland directly across from Basswood Island.  These Ice Caves are not as numerous as the famous Meyers Beach Ice Caves but The sandstone cliffs are just as tall, with frozen waterfalls that cascade to the surface of the lake. The Red Cliff Ice Caves open up each year in January and offer an opportunity to experience the Apostle Islands Ice Caves without having to deal with the unpredictable conditions at Meyers Beach.  There are 3 layers of sandstone in the Apostle Islands and the best Ice Caves are found in the Devil's Layer.  If the ice conditions are appropriate we can still get you ice caves in the the Devil's layer without having to venture to the dangerous section of Ice Caves at Meyers Beach.  Our guides are Red Cliff Ojibwe tribal members and have exclusive access to locations along the mainland that non tribal members do not have access to.  When you are with our guides you will also have access to these hidden locations.
