Apostle Islands in the winter

I live in Minneapolis and am looking for a weekend getaway. Are the Apostle Islands open in the winter and if so, how do you get around? Are there tours?

Hotel recommendations?

The Rittenhouse has some great last minute deals. They're great for romantic stays, it's a fantastic Victorian. Dining there is a wonderful option as well. We've always enjoyed the Lake Superior view location, great owners and lovely price of Seagullbay Motel. http://www.seagullbay.com/

http://www.rittenhouseinn.com/ like their facebook page too. The Iron Bridge is great for a nice view.

Ice Caves not open this year (they went viral so when conditions are right and do open it's crazytown but beautiful...too warm this year probably).

The Ice Road to Madeline Island info. : bayfield.org/bayfield-activities/ice-road/

yep, unfortunately, the ice caves likely won't be accessible this winter, unless the ice conditions improve....

i was fortunate enough to see them 2 years ago and it was STUNNING.
