Getting Around

Hometown Taxi

The Friendliest Cab Service in the Midwest!

Founded in 1987, Hometown Taxi has become one of Decorah’s most popular services. They are also this year’s Nordic Fest Grand Marshal! As fully accredited Medicaid transportation providers, Hometown Taxi drivers are compliant with Iowa State drug testing, criminal history background checks, defensive driving first aid, and passenger assistance training. All together, current drivers have well over 100 years of taxi driving experience.

Payment accepted by cash, check, and credit card in the car and over the phone. Visit for more information or call 563-382-3155 for a ride.

Walking and Biking

Decorah is a pedestrian- and bike-friendly community. All Nordic Fest activities are in easy walking distance from downtown Decorah. And if you love the great outdoors, be sure to bring your bike and take it for a ride on the 11-mile Trout Run Trail.

For Your Safety and Enjoyment…

To ensure everyone’s safe enjoyment of Nordic Fest, the use of bicycles, skateboards, scooters, roller skates and roller blades, snap and pop or firework devices are prohibited in designated Fest areas. Dogs and other pets must be on leashes, and Decorah’s Animal Waste Ordinance will be enforced. All motorized vehicles in Fest areas must be licensed official Nordic Fest vehicles. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
