Outdoor Adventures that Will Excite the Whole Family

Suppose you and your family are looking to move away from the typical, every-year beach vacation. Below is a list of some outdoor adventure activities that you and your family might be interested in doing.

White Water Rafting 

If you are unfamiliar with white water rafting, it is a thrill-seeking activity in which you and a group of about five others paddle down a river in an inflatable raft. But, you may be thinking, what is so thrill-seeking about floating down a river in a raft? Well, in this river, there will eventually be rapids that you and your group get to ride along in the raft.

The biggest part of white water rafting is safety. There will be a short crash course at most places that explain what safety measures to take and what course would be best based on your experience and skill level. 


Everyone knows the concept of zip-lining because of their one college friend who broke numerous items trying to build one. But, what you may not know is that several areas throughout North America have amazing zip-lining courses where you can experience the thrill of cruising through the air at high speeds. 

Two unique qualities set zip-line courses apart from other outdoor adventures. The first being that you get to enjoy the sights while you are cruising through the air, and this makes zip-lining both relaxing and thrilling at the same time. Also, most zip-line adventure courses have a ropes course paired with them. Sometimes the ropes course may be extra, but if your kids have always been into climbing trees and acrobatics, then they will appreciate the extra stop. 

Water Sports 

If you are thinking about taking a vacation and don’t already have a boat, consider renting a house on the lake. There are so many cool and fun activities to do with a boat and the open water. You can go from relaxing on the boat with your family and listening to Jimmy Buffet to getting popped up nine feet in the air on a water tube. 

Plus, if you are out by the lake, you can also rent jet skis. Jet skis are the perfect thing to rent for one day. If you rent the jet skis for a week, you will most likely not use them for more than a day, and it would be a waste of money. That being said, jet skis are a lot of fun to play around on for a day. 


The best part about all of these activities is that there are levels of difficulty to them. For example, white water rafting will have a beginner, intermediate, and advanced course. This means that the trip can be wholesome fun for the entire family, no matter how old your kids are. 

If you and your family are looking for cool and exciting vacation spots where you can find all of these activities, Vancouver is worth checking out. Vancouver has several outdoor-themed vacation spots where all of the fun, thrill-seeking activities are within driving range. Plus, who knows, maybe your family might start looking for homes for sale in Vancouver.
