The Best Things to Do in Wisconsin Dells

Category Photo
While now the Dells are typically thought of as a hot new vacation spot, there is a rich history that made the community what it is today. It’s properly named, “Wisconsin” being the Native American word for dark rushing waters and “Dells” being French for layers of flat rock. Even in 1856, as the city was just beginning, it was already thought that the unique yet romantic scenery of the area would keep it a getaway spot for years to come. The Dells are full of outdoor adventures just waiting to be had. Connecting with nature and the great outdoors is one of the best ways to create memories with the entire family. Get out there, explore, and experience what made the Dells popular to begin with! 

Rock climbing 
You don't have to be a professional to have fun rock climbing. With Wisconsin Dells Rock Climbing, you get to climb at Devils Lake and Chimney Rock Park, which you will see as you’ve never seen before. You will be with an expert guide who will customize your climb to your own ability. The hills surrounding Devils Lake, also referred to as Baraboo hills, make it one of the premier rock climbing areas in the midwest. Primarily composed of granite and quartzite, these are solid climbs for the adventurer of any skill level. 

Ice Climbing 
Heading to the Dells in the winter months? Try ice climbing with an ice climbing tour that we offer! This 3.5-hour tour includes all the gear you will need and an expert guide who will personalize your tour to your skill level and liking. Most tours are held at Governor Dodge State Park, one of the largest State Parks in Wisconsin. Governor Dodge sits on more than 5,000 acres of land. Featuring steep hills, deep valleys, bluffs, two lakes, and a waterfall, this park has everything you’ll need for an action-packed winter adventure. 

Zipline Tours 
A zipline tour allows you to become one with the trees. These thrilling adventures are great for all ages! With the zipline tour that we offer, there are over a hundred miles of scenery along the tour; you will have beautiful views that are unlike anything you have ever seen. You also take a 25-minute scenic hike up to the summit of Chimney Rock; your expert guide explains to you the history of Chimney Rock Park and even introduces you to some of its unique wildlife. 

Paddleboarding & Kayaking 
Get out there and get up close and personal with the Wisconsin River. Families may enjoy gazing at sandbars and beaches, while the more adventurous explorer will get an intimate look at the hidden coves within Dells' rock formations. With tandem and single kayaks available, the Adventure Tours in the Wisconsin Dells make a great option for families looking for some fun in the sun.
