Summer Adventures for Thrill-Seekers

Okay, so maybe you’re not looking to jump off a bridge or out of a plane anytime soon, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting a bit of a thrill once in a while, right? And if it’s out in the beauty of nature, so much the better!

The good news? Summertime in Jackson was absolutely made for thrill-seekers. Here are four of our favorite summer adventures, yours for the taking.

1. ATV Tour

When the snow leaves the ground and we have to say goodbye to snowmobiles for the year, the only thing that comforts us is the fact that we still have ATVs. Nothing beats getting to experience the backcountry from the seat of a four-wheeler, especially when nature creeps right up close. Get ready to view waterfalls, vistas, wildlife and more as you never have before.

2. Hiking

It sounds a little silly to say that hiking can be thrilling, but that’s because you’ve never stood on the heart-stopping vantage points such as those that overlook Yellowstone Canyon. If you’re ready for a low-grade thrill that will stick with you, hiking is a great choice.

3. Wildlife Tour

Think wildlife tours are ho-hum? Then you’ve never spotted a bear or a moose up close … trust us. Once you do – whether it’s from a raft, ATV or van – you’ll never again accuse tours of being cushy.

4. White-Water Rafting

White-water rafting is a classic summer activity for those who want a bit of a rush. There’s nothing better than floating down the river, viewing wildlife, and hanging onto your butt as you tumble through splashing rapids and hope for the best. With Mad River Boat Trips, you’ll do just that. Plus, you’ll get to stop by a river history museum as well, which turns a white-water adventure into a true experience you’ll never forget.

The only caveat: You’re not the only thrill-seeker out there. These adventures fill up fast, so don’t wait to book yours today. Get in touch with Scenic Safaris to learn more about our tours or rates, or book a trip for yourself or your family today!​
