Miss your snowboard or skis? You’re going to want to use the summer to get some natural highs while enjoying the great weather. Here are some activities to try this season:


Skydiving is an obvious choice for adrenaline junkies, and with good reason. After mastering tandem jumps with an instructor, you can dive all on your own and experience the glory of a clear blue sky from above.

Skydiving is also good preparation for BASE (Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth)  jumping, considered by many to be the most extreme of extreme sports, which involves jumping off any of the surfaces in the acronym with a rapid-deployment parachute.

Rock Climbing

Summer is a good time to incorporate nature into your thrill seeking. Rock climbing can be great exercise and a way to see wild animals and plants from a different angle. And rock climbing in the summer in green forests cuts out the need for thick winter clothing, so you’re free to experience your surroundings.

Make sure you have access to the right climbing gear, either through a rental place near your destination or by purchasing your own.

Cliff Diving

For those of you who take to water like fish, cliff diving may be the perfect activity for you, and warmer summer weather means the water will be refreshing. Just make sure the water is deep enough where you’ll be landing and that there aren’t any rocks in the way.

White Water Rafting

White water rafting is another fun water-based adventure. The excitement of negotiating a raging river with friends or family can be a great way to get outdoors and get your blood pumping.

The Mud Runner 

The Mud Runner race can give you a challenge and an endorphin kick. Ever try running up a black diamond ski hill? It’s time to take it to the next level.

Hopefully something here strikes your interest and inspires your next wild trip. Looking for something to do once winter kicks in?
