Unleash Your Adventuresome Side: 6 Activities to Try
Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride
You can enjoy a hot air balloon ride in Quechee or at the Post Mills airport.
The time most people know to go on a balloon ride is during the annual Quechee Balloon Festival, which is Father's Day weekend, June 15-17, 2018.
However, you don't have to wait until festival to go in a hot air balloon ride. Brian Boland, one of the best balloonists in the world, gives balloon rides year round from Post Mills airport. You can read about his credentials here.
Try Tandem Hang Gliding
Morning Side in Charlestown is the known spot for hand gliding (try it alone or with a friend). Did you know it also has a zip line and paragliding, and laser tag?
Indoor Skydiving or Surfing
These are activities I might enjoy, for the mildly adverturous. There's also a fishpipe and rock climbing wall. You'll have to travel to Nashua to SkyVenture to experience this, but what a fun day trip or special occasion activity.
Zip line at Bretton Woods
Zipline year round at Bretton Woods. Learn about the local nature, stand on tree platforms, and sky bridges, and feel comfortable with a guide along your way.
Enjoy the Hawk Experience in Woodstock
New England Falconry hosts hawk sessions where you can learn about falconry and experience handling a hawk. You could tell all your friends you had a hawk land on your arm!
