Leaving from Copper Harbor but want to hike Windigo to RH

Post by Trekman »

Planning a trip for next summer (Early, i know) but am wondering if there is an efficient way to get from Copper Harbor to Windigo. Everything i have read sounds like going from Windigo to RH is the best way to see the entire island and it would be nice to end at RH before catching our ferry back to Copper Harbor. Any advice from people who have done this would be appreciated.

Seaplane or Voyageur II ferry are your only two options to get from Rock Harbor to Windigo, if you are dead set on traveling from Copper Harbor.

Check out this thread for more logistic options to get from one end of the island to the other.

yea what Inca Roads said is your only option (seaplane or voyager). Don't discount going RH to Windigo though. I really loved that hike and ending in windigo was perfect for us.
