Have the white Christmas you’ve always dreamed of and come visit us in Wisconsin Dells this holiday season! Our lovely city has so much to offer this time of year, from winter recreation to unforgettable Wisconsin Dells Christmas 2021 events. Sitting on the Wisconsin River, the area is home to a region of natural wonders and offers ample opportunity for outdoor activities, as well as snuggling up by the fire with your favorite seasonal beverage and cherishing the slower pace of Christmas Day.
Winter Activities and Recreation Abound
The Midwest is truly a winter wonderland, and that means plenty of chances to take advantage of the season and enjoy the fun the colder weather brings. Luckily, visitors will find that there are three easily accessible nearby state parks. Take a quick journey to Rocky Arbor State Park to embark on a kid-friendly snowshoeing trail, or hike to take in the pine-forest scenery. Mirror Lake State Park to the south offers miles of well-maintained trails for cross-country skiing, while Devil’s Lake State Park is home to similar activities, including sledding and ice-fishing.
Be Awed and Dazzled at Mt. Olympus’s Nights of Lights
The first of what will likely become a treasured annual holiday tradition, one that offers tons of flexibility for vacationers, is Mt. Olympus’s Nights of Lights indoor light show at the premiere indoor theme park in Wisconsin Dells. At only a half a mile walk through, the path is doable for both parents and kids and features over a million lights that will transform the park into a sparkling Christmas fantasyland. Along the way, stands selling Christmas treats and hot cocoa will be there to complete the experience, and even better, an indoor water and theme park ticket is included with the ticket! All for the amazing price of $10, and you can even take the kids to visit Santa’s Christmas Village inside the park. Nights of Lights will take place every Friday and Saturday in December, as well as a long run from December 23rd to January 1st, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Festive Evenings at The Tree of Light
This is the second year that the city will feature our Tree of Light, a massive 55-foot silver maple tree strung with tens of thousands of glittering lights, just off the famous River Walk. This is one of the few displays like this in the country and will be lit up from 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. nightly through January 1st. The Tree of Light also offers plenty of Christmas activities perfect for families, like Christmas caroling and apple cider treats—even a visit or two from Santa on Friday and Saturdays in December leading up to Christmas! The walk also features tons of additional lighted holiday trees and creates a picture-perfect Christmas mood that the entire family will love.
Visit Christmas Mountain Village for World-Class Skiing
The Wisconsin Dells area offers quite a few ski resorts, but it’s the ideal season to pay a visit to Christmas Mountain Village. Ski season begins just in time for Christmas, and they’re open until 10 p.m. on the weekends. If you’re here for opening day on December 17th, you can enjoy free snow tubing, which will delight kids and adults alike. Ski and snowboard day passes are available, and cross-country ski trail access passes are also for sale.
