Not Just a Resort.
Glacier Canyon Lodge offers a vacation experience to fit every kind of want and desire. Sometimes, it’s just hard to please everyone. This resort is so close to everything that you don’t have to spend half of your day in the car trying to get to that cool waterpark you heard about online. You can split up your days to allow each person to get something of interest out of each day. And if you just want to spend your day lounging by the pool, we will make sure it is the most relaxing day of fun in the sun.
The natural beauty of the Wisconsin River has attracted tourists to the region for a number of years. Visitors are amazed at how the river can be so calm and still yet so full of life at the same time. To just sit down and appreciate the sight in front of you is an experience in and of itself. Book a river tour or dinner cruise to really get a full feel of what this place has to offer. You will marvel at the glacier-carved sandstone formations, rocky cliff sides, and dramatic canyons.
Follow peaceful trails on a forest hike or venture onto the lake to enjoy premium fishing, boating, jet skiing, and water skiing. The area is known for its outdoor activities so get your swing ready for any of the golf courses in the city. Get your crew together and test your wit on the greens. As the season’s change, so do the opportunities within this outdoor playground. A trip to the Midwest is incomplete without some kind of winter sports. As the snow starts to fall, break out your skis and enjoy the slopes. The snow falls and makes a perfect trail for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing.
