Welcome to Viroqua


Driftless Region
    
Welcome to Viroqua, Wisconsin, your Doorway to the Driftless Area, a region of unglaciated, mountainous terrain known as the Ocooch Mountains and breath-catching deep-carved valleys, or coulees, drained by hundreds of cold-spring streams.  Visitors are discovering the many attractions of this scenic corner of the Upper Midwest…trout fishing our Class A blue
ribbon streams, cycling our back country roads, sampling the fruits of local vineyards and orchards… hiking, hunting or just hanging out on Main Street for a visit that will help you discover what you’ve been looking for all along.  We’ll even tell you the real meaning of “Driftless”!
