Nestled between limestone bluffs and the mighty Mississippi River, Dubuque’s natural landscape is full of wonder. In the warmer months you can hike, bike or paddle the many trails, take in the breathtaking views, or sail above the trees in a guided zipline tour. The winter months offer plenty of options for sledding, skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing and rinks for ice skating.
