Massachusetts Bungee Jumping and Adventure Travel It seems like all adventure seekers want to do these days is lift up off the ground to get a better look at what's beneath them. That's definitely part of the appeal of skydiving, hang gliding, and bungee jumping—that, and the thrill of flying through open space! Massachusetts tour operators offer a number of bungee jumping adventure travel options that the flying-through-space sort of person will go crazy for. But there are also tamer adventure travel options that will appeal to travels who want to achieve those sky high heights without then plummeting to what feels like their doom.
For these people, the best bet would be helicopter or hot air balloon rides. These excursions offer travelers with the absolute best way to view the cities and country beneath them. These options are particularly popular over highly populated areas like Boston, Providence, and Cape Cod, though can also be enjoyed around tall mountains and over wide open fields and valleys.
Vermont Bungee Jumping and Adventure Travel Adventure seekers need not look too far when visiting the adventurous state of Vermont—and most of the other states in the New England region as well. There aren't many other states that can boast being home to one of the world's largest and only not-for-profit bungee jumping clubs, the Stealth Air Bungee Club.
Vermont bungee jumping is only an example of the adventure travel options in the area. With an endless number of mountains in the state of Vermont, plus rivers set up for rafting, you'll have no trouble planning an adventure vacation. Vermont also makes it particularly easy for backpackers by supplying lots of campgrounds. Mountain lodges are also common, and popular, once the weather gets a bit too cold to allow for sleeping under the stars.
If you're looking for a bit more of a lavish travel adventure, consider signing up for a hot air balloon or helicopter ride. These options provide stunning bird's eye views of the mountainous state and are available year-round.
New Hampshire Bungee Jumping and Adventure Travel There's one spot where all New Hampshire adventure travelers go—Mt. Washington. This is the highest peak in all of New England and is known, among many other reasons, as a superb launch spot for hang gliders. Gliders must be members of the Vermont Hang Gliding Association—so once they do that, then, weather permitting, the sky's the limit!
New Hampshire bungee jumping is also a popular adventure travel activity, as is white water rafting, hiking, camping, and dog sledding. Yes, you read that right. Once the snows start piling down, dog sledders take to the crisp white snow covered wilderness with such enthusiasm that it makes even the least adventure-inclined person want to give it a shot. Experienced mushers offer future dog sledders with the how-to's of dog sledding, including feeding and harnessing the dogs, team commands, and the actual sledding lesson. The New England Dog Club will offer more information about sledding, as well as offer opportunities for dog sled spectators.
