This one-hour, half-land, half-water adventure takes you through the most scenic parts of the Wisconsin Dells region. You travel down the cliff-lined Wisconsin River, across a huge sand bar, up Dell Creek, into beautiful Lake Delton and through our spectacular wilderness trails. Only Original Wisconsin Ducks® travel these exclusive “duck trails,” traversing narrow canyons, winding passages and roller coaster hills on a journey through scenery, history, legend and thrills. 

This map will provide a preview of sights, thrills and adventures to come. Just roll over a red number for more information on selected tour highlights. To print or download this map, click here

DUCK DOCK

Tours begin at the Duck Dock, located at 1890 Wisconsin Dells Parkway (Hwy 12). Look for Original Wisconsin Ducks® signs!

OLD CHICAGO STATUES

Once decorations gracing the Chicago Board of Trade building, these gargoyle statues now provide an avenue to travel along as we begin our adventure.

HOP ALONG HILL

How fast can a duck go? You’ll get a good idea when your driver accelerates the engine, propelling the duck down a steep valley and up the other side. Hang onto your seat!

FERN DELL

This fern-lined canyon hosts 27 thriving varieties, thanks to the ideal combination of shade, moisture and cool temperatures.

ECHO POINT

We make our entry into the Wisconsin River at this point, a place where the sounds of man and nature have been known to echo along the high sandstone cliffs.

PULPIT ROCK AND THE BABY GRAND PIANO

The first rock formation on the Wisconsin River takes the shape of a classic grand piano and has an equally impressive legend to go along with it!

HAWK’S BILL

One of the most famous rock formations in the Dells region, the awesome profile of a gigantic hawk screeching out across the Wisconsin River!

CROSSING THE BAR

Engaging the power of six-wheel drive and the propeller, our duck climbs out of the water as we cross over the sand bar and enter Dell Creek.

NEWMAN’S DAM AND LAKE DELTON

Chicago millionaire W.J. Newman built the 20-foot-high dam and 267-acre lake in 1927 — and you’ll get an up close and personal look at both!

DAWN MANOR

This Civil War era home is the last remaining structure of the lost city of Newport and home to the antiques and art treasures of Helen Raab.

WILDERNESS TRAILS

Once the site of the city of Newport, today the streets are covered in pine, oak and wildflowers. Among the inhabitants are turkey, beaver, eagle, white-tailed deer, fox, pileated woodpeckers and other animals.

ROLLER COASTER HILL

Hang on to your seats! Our duck navigates a series of twists, turns and the famous Roller Coaster Hill!

SUICIDE HILL

We enjoy a panoramic view of the Wisconsin River before crawling down a steep grade. One look down the sheer cliff explains how the hill got its name.

LAKE OF THE DELLS

This lilypad-covered pond was established for conservation purposes, providing a place where deer, crane, blue heron, turtles and beaver often gather.

RED BIRD GORGE

The duck squeezes through this narrow canyon, giving us an extremely close look at the ancient sandstone from only a few feet away!

BLACK HAWK GORGE

This fern-filled canyon is named for the Sauk leader Black Hawk, who was allegedly captured by the United States Army in the Dells area.
