Door County Experiences

Door County is known primarily as a beautiful stretch of peninsula, but what many don’t know is that there is an array of islands accessible by boat that offer unique experiences and new adventures. There is a total of 35 islands that pepper the waters surrounding Door County, but only a few are readily accessible.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your USA holiday with us and are visiting Door County.     

Duration: 1.5 Hours 

Learn from the locals the best places to wine, dine, and relax! Take an “Old Time” trolley ride and see breathtaking vistas from Door County’s scenic bluffs overlooking the islands. As we traverse the land, we’ll share the legends and lore unique to each area. Don’t forget to bring your camera! Make this one of the first things you do in the county!

Duration: 5 Hours

Experience the VIP wine tour of the area known as the Midwest Wine Region. Guests will visit 3 award-winning Door County wineries for wine tastings. Each of the businesses visited will have wine tastings emphasizing red wines, white wines, ports and ciders. Top it all off with a chef prepared lunch and dessert.

Located along Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin’s busy waterfront, the Door County Maritime Museum showcases the area’s rich maritime roots. Hard-working fishermen, brave ship captains, skilled craftsmen, bold inventors and lonely lighthouse keepers are just some of the personalities you’ll discover in the galleries of the museum. See how these maritime pioneers worked and what they made, and you’ll understand and appreciate your visit to Door County on a deeper, more engaged level.

Door County is pleasantly void of skyscrapers—but that doesn’t mean you can't take in the view. Several lookout towers provide expansive, panoramic views of the vibrant blues and greens that encapsulate the beauty of the peninsula and islands and allow you to truly take it all in.

Eagle Tower is Peninsula State Park's newly constructed and fully ADA-accessible lookout tower. Visitors can ascend the tower via 95 stairs or an 850-foot elevated boardwalk ramp that winds through the forest, has multiple places to stop and take in the view, and ends with panoramic views of the coast.

Eagle Tower Highlights

  • 850 foot canopy walk to the top of the 60 foot tower
  • Wheelchairs and strollers are permitted on the tower due to the installed ramp.
  • Visitors may purchase a commemorative brick that will be placed at the base of the kiosk

Well-known for its wave-worn Dolomite/limestone ledges, underwater caves and stirring view of Lake Michigan, the park is a popular attraction for residents and visitors alike.  The site is a popular location for weddings as well.  Fishermen, skilled scuba divers, photography buffs, and nature  observers find the park a great delight. Cave Point offers a spectacular view of Lake Michigan and the eastern shore of the Door Peninsula, including sunrise and evening moon rises.  A half-mile hiking trail stretches through the forest of birch, maple and beech trees and links up with several miles of trails in the adjacent Whitefish Dunes State Park, which borders the park on three sides. 

A rocky beach extends eastward at lake level. The area is popular for kayak tours, allowing paddlers to explore sea caves up close as well as the scenic lake front shoreline.  Due to the rocky shoreline, kayaks must be launched at an adjacent site to the park and caution should be heeded as weather conditions can change rapidly and the rocky conditions of the area can be dangerous even with a small amount of wave action. Watching a storm at Cave Point is a fascinating adventure.  As waves crash against the rock formation, dramatic water spray can be seen, and felt even from a safe distance.  Water also sprays from blowholes 15 to 30 feet in from the edge created by fractures in the dolomite.

Cave Point offers a spectacular picture in winter as the constant wave action forms icicles that cling to the rock formations. Use caution, as rocks are slippery when wet or covered with ice.  Although ungroomed, cross-country skiing can be accomplished on the trail.
