Many students around the country are gearing up for a week of fun. Spring break season is here and in full force. If you’re heading to the beach or the city to make unforgettable memories, why not add a thrilling excursion?

Skip that second or third day of relaxation and add a one-of-a-kind adventure to your list. Here are a few outdoor adventures to book for spring break to take your trip to the next level.

Catch Some Waves in Hawaii

Spring break is for soaking in the sun. After a long winter, you deserve to hit the beach and ride the waves. If you’re looking for outdoor adventures to book this year, you should visit the beautiful state of Hawaii. We recommend you take a quick surfing lesson before entering the big blue sea; the waves in Hawaii may be bigger than you imagined. However, always check the national weather service for any warnings or advisories to be safe.

Hike the Appalachian Trail

Although one week isn’t nearly enough time to hike the entire trail, it’s enough time to bask in the beauty! For those who don’t know, the Appalachian trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and is 2,200 miles long. You and your friends can spend a full day hiking along the Blue Ridge Mountains or stop by the Clingmans Dome for breathtaking views.

Go Hunting in Florida’s Everglades

When most people head to Florida for spring break, they typically hit the beaches and soak up the sun. However, visiting the Everglades can take your Florida spring break adventure to the next level. This massive national park is 1.5 million acres of wetlands that provide thrilling outdoor activities, like airboats and guided hunting tours.

You can keep Florida’s invasive species numbers down by going hunting in various places in the Everglades. You can hunt Burmese pythons, wild hogs, and more!

Try White Water Rafting in Chattanooga

Another thrilling outdoor adventure to book for spring break is in the rivers of Chattanooga, Tennessee. This city is the perfect spring break spot for those who love the outdoors. Look out your window to see the Chattahoochee National Forest, or visit the Ocoee River to go white water rafting. This excursion comes at different levels depending on your group’s skill level.
