Do It: Adventure

Georgia Adrenaline Adventures: Be Bold. Be Daring.

Adventure seekers of all types are rushing to Georgia. In the Peach State they can do
anything from whitewater rafting to zip lining through the treetops.

Power splash through the ‘Wild & Scenic’ beauty of the mighty Chattooga River on a thrilling Georgia whitewater rafting trip. Or play at Columbus, Georgia’s section of the Chattahoochee River where you can raft the longest urban whitewater course in the world. Follow that thrill with a 35mph zip line ride 100 feet above the river from Columbus to Phenix City, Alabama.

Zip lines, canopy tours and ropes courses can be found all over the state including those at the Adventure Lodges within Amicalola Falls and Unicoi state parks. Feel your excitement build as the air whistles past you at up to 60 mph. Or try the hair-raising freefall on a giant swing at Nacoochee Adventures near Helen, Georgia. What a rush!

Lake Lanier offers all sorts of water sport thrills with the Wake the Lake Cable Park. You can wakeboard, waterski, wakeskate, kneeboard or tube while being pulled by a cable (no boat required). And on Georgia’s coast, plenty of outfitters can teach you to surf, windsurf and kiteboard in the breaking waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Climbers and cavers flock to Georgia’s rappelling and climbing locations. Push your personal and lofty limits from the heights of LaFayette’s Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Area or from Talullah Gorge’s steep cliffs above its raging river. Or go ‘down under’ into the state’s subterranean paradises.

Release your inner daredevil during one of the internationally recognized motorcycle rider training classes at the Motorcycle Safety Foundation in Alpharetta. Take a basic training class, learn to maneuver an ATV, or dive into the elements of dirt bike riding.

Soar with the eagles from Lookout Mountain with a hang-gliding rush or parasail on ocean breezes on the coast. For a different kind of aerial excitement, check out a falconry course at Sea Island, Historic Banning Mills, or in the North Georgia Mountains. Enjoy the thrill of having a raptor fly to your gloved fist.

If you’re more of a water sprite, Georgia has plenty of opportunities for SCUBA diving and snorkeling. At Kraken Springs in White, Georgia, dive into a 20-acre spring-fed lake. Or head to the coast to explore the many natural and artificial reefs and shipwrecks of southeast Georgia. You can even swim with whale sharks and manta rays in the Ocean Voyager exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium!

Many residents and visitors satisfy their passion for extreme sports by combining adventure disciplines and skills. Georgia’s varied topography challenges adventurous types to compete by hiking, biking, running, paddling, traversing, rappelling and climbing, whether against themselves, or against teams in a “down and dirty” adventure race.

Whether you prefer pitting yourself against your own strength, stamina and fearlessness, or vying
against others in a race to win, Georgia has thrilling adventures to satisfy any level of daredevil.
