Reimagining Experiential Travel

Well, we have audaciously set forth determined to do just this. We at the UbYou Tour Co. have reimagined travel.

Truly Experience a Place

And so, our distinctiveness is the ever growing selection of cool, off the beaten path adventures our hosts have to offer, in alluring undiscovered locales around the Driftless. Thus, for you, the weary traveller, we offer a more earnest experience.

 Visit the inhabitants of a real Middle Earth, here in the Driftless Region.






Magical Unglaciated Driftless Region

The driftless region the mystical area in Southwest Wisconsin and adjoining areas of Minnesota and Iowa, that has never been glaciated. That is, it was somehow spared bulldozing from three separate epic glaciers.  From above it has the appearance of a fern (golden ratios everywhere if you’re into that).

The result is a pristine and pure lands with Middle Earth-like bluffs and valleys. Where each valley flows with its own artesian spring fed stream.  The allure of the area has attracted a peculiar collection of super interesting souls. These are the folks you will encounter and some of the most passionate, are hosts and owners of our company. 

 So it is the intersection of divine geography with authentic human adventures!
