On either your own bike or the handmade road bikes we’ve imported from Italy, you’ll ride the quiet farm roads and visits the charming shops along the way. Lush corn and alfalfa green fields as far as your eye will take you in Spring and Summer. Vibrant reds, oranges and yellows as Autumn arrives. Even the rhythmic clip-clop of a standardbred horse pulling an Amish family carriage won’t just be occasional. There’s something about the rhythm and a pulsing heartbeat that opens us up to possibility.
You’ll find our guides to be both knowledgeable and friendly with a focus on education and catching something memorable. Either bring your obsessions or leave for home with them: fishing is all about details, but is a total blast!
Whether wading, casting from a boat or tossing a line in from the edge of the water, this might be the most fun you can have. The chances are high that you’ll catch something, and there’s nothing quite like the thrill of landing your fish in a net. Of course, after the picture, we throw it right back! Choose a full or half-day experience, fishing for Trout, Bass, Northern Pike, Carp and anything else that swims!
Hiking trips with Adventure Explorations are very different than what’s typical. We certainly enjoy and relax with nature, walk quietly and listen for what the trail gives us. We are constantly seeking, too, to teach new skills and to learn more about what we can’t see. Or, what’s right in front or above us, but we’re too “head down” to notice. We’ve introduced basic survival skills into our Hikes, including shelter building, knife skills, using a compass and fire-starting. Adding birdwatching (and listening) has been very popular, too! While you may not ever need it, these skills will come in handy if you ever get stuck in a whiteout snowstorm, have the power go out, need to cut a rope, or even get warm while trying to figure out how to get home.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of excitement and the thrill that comes with shooting a clay out of the sky. It can be extremely challenging, yet a complete beginner can participate and enjoy it. Often referred to as “golf with a shotgun,” sporting clays are shot on a course; no two are the same. Like golf’s individual holes to play, course has ‘stations, where again no two will be the same. A sporting clays course setup is only limited by the course designer’s imagination and the surrounding terrain. We guarantee it’ll be an experience loaded with memories – great shots, “almosts” and incredible walks through nature.
