Welcome to Visit Apostle Islands!

Enjoying the beaches in the Apostle Islands

Hello! We’re David & Lina Stock, a pair of Wisconsin loving locals that have called Northern Wisconsin and the shores of Lake Superior home our whole lives.

We’re professional photographers, travel writers, and the founders of, one of the largest travel blogs in the world.

It has won multiple awards and has been featured by publications like Lonely Planet, Travel & Leisure, Expedia, Travelocity, Afar, Huffington Post, The Oyster, to name a few.

Over the past 20 years, we have traveled to more than 100 countries and all 7 continents while continuing to be based near Superior, Wisconsin.

When we meet other travelers abroad, they often ask us where we live and 100% of the time they are shocked when we tell them we live in NW Wisconsin and use Duluth, MN for our home airport.

They often say to us, ‘you can live anywhere, why would you live way up there?’ to which we promptly reply ‘have you ever spent any time in Northern Wisconsin or visited the shores of Lake Superior?’ The answer is almost always a hard no. It is at that moment that we find our opportunity to shed some light and open people’s eyes to the beauty of this area.

Visit Apostle Islands is our new passion project. We love Wisconsin, Lake Superior, the Apostle Islands, and all that goes with it. The goal of this site is to not only help you plan an awesome trip to one of the most famed and special places in Wisconsin but to also showcase the beauty of this place we choose to call home.

Thank you for stopping by. We look forward to connecting with you!

– Lina & David
