Soaring High in Bluff Country

Zip through the breathtaking Mississippi River Valley on a guided tour at Sky Tours Zipline. Whether you be a nature lover, history enthusiast or general thrill seeker, a day cruising through the trees will be the perfect warm weather outing for anyone exploring Dubuque this season.

A perfect afternoon adventure

Begin your adventure with a short scenic hike to the start of the zip course. Throughout this two hour long guided tour, you’ll fly over deep timbered ravines, take in panoramic views of the historic Union Park, and hang out near a Hawk’s nest. These nine zip runs make for the perfect afternoon adventure for anyone ages 10 and up.

Historical + Breathtaking Landscape

The land you will be flying high above has a rich history dating back more than 120 years. Originally donated to the City of Dubuque in 1890, the Union Park land held many uses prior to be a thrill seekers paradise. Beginning as a hub for a simple trolley car, the park added on walkways through a cave, two bandstands, a theater, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and more by its closure in 1935. Now home to the Dubuque Community Y Camp and Sky Tours Zipline, you’ll soar over the ruins of this historic property and see why it remains one of Eastern Iowa’s most enchanting settings.
