Adventure Travel in Georgia

Adventure Travel in Georgia

Who can resist the beauty of Georgia and its versatile terrain: from swamplands and rivers to mountains and plains. Thus, besides its rich historic background, Georgia is a favorite destination for travelers who crave for adventure. So if you’re thinking of going on a one-day trip or a week, the Southern state will surely have something to suit your schedule and activity level.

Durhamtown Plantation

Located in Union Point, Durhamtown Plantation is a great place for some family bonding while outdoors. Bring your RV along and stay for as long as you want (even up to a month). Or if you prefer, rent a cabin that can sleep up to 10 people. And you’ll never run out of activities at the plantation and whatever sport you’re interested in, you’ll find a place for it. Hunting, fishing, dirt-bike riding—you can also watch all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) race anytime of the year.

Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding Park

On Georgia’s northwestern border lies the Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding Park, a perfect destination for travelers who are hungry for elevation and are not scared of heights. Even inexperienced hang gliders can try the Introductory Experience package. After learning the basics of hang gliding, the participant is paired with an instructor for a flight 2,000 feet above ground! A variety of accommodations are available in the area, including loft rentals, cabins, and bunkhouses.

Amicalola Falls

Hikers will love the Amicalola Falls situated in an area of the Appalachian Trail. You are free to choose the difficulty level of your trail and you can stay overnight at an inn that serves breakfasts and dinners too. But before starting your journey, make sure to first join in a safety seminar conducted by the park rangers.

Magic Carpet Ride Balloon Adventures

Take in the view of beautiful Atlanta, Duluth, Alpharetta, and Snellville on board a hot air balloon. A group of a maximum of four people can join in the one-hour trip in two schedules: at sunrise or right before sunset for the best possible view of the landscape. Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, you can breathe easy that the company has had a perfect safety record. Afterwards, participants can mingle with other riders and enjoy a champagne toast. What a way to cap the adventure!
