Adventure should be fun, learnable and promote self-discovery. From beginner to advanced, every trip is customized for you and your private group based on our knowledge of the best spots in Lancaster County and Central PA. Our trips include all gear, expert guides, snacks, water, meals, safety equipment! You just bring the energy!

Rock Climbing

This might be the most fun you can have. It’s safe, and you go at your pace and stop when you’re done. You will be attached to ropes and backup safety to ensure you’re comfortable and getting the thrills and self-discovery that’s waiting for you. This trip is perfect for family getaway, unique date, bachelor/bachelorette party or exciting group outing with outdoor rock climbing and rappelling instruction by one of  our experienced, educated guides. 

Kayaking

It’s a 4-season adventure, even winter (we have dry suits!) Kayak or canoe in the most picturesque streams and rivers in Pennsylvania, The incredible nature, fresh air and sense of discovery is free!

Feel the power of the water as you learn to navigate, carve and surf your way down the wonderful waterways of PA. This trip is perfect for family getaway, unique date, bachelor/bachelorette party or exciting group outing with padding instruction by one of our experienced, educated guides. Guides will provide the necessary equipment, knowledge, and skills in order to provide a safe, exciting, and memorable experience. 

Cycling

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. 

Fishing

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

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.

Clay Shooting

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.

Had an amazing time with them. They organized a week long adventure for over a hundred people. From the onset Chris and Cody were professional and easy to work with. Their knowledge of the outdoors and all that you can do helped with the planning process and improved the original idea. Every day was smooth and organized. Everyone who participated completed the challenges and have asked to do something with them again. I plan on it.

Cody was our guide. He was ready, prepared, and knowledgeable about the area, the river, and kayaking. He took a lot of time to make sure we experienced a few rapids, helped us surf, and took amazing pictures of the wild life while we kayaked. I am a novice, and he made me feel like a pro - so polite and kind. I would highly recommend his company for any sort of adventure they offer! In fact, we will be fly fishing soon with a member of his team! Excited to use his company again when our FL family come in for a visit!

We went with the girls from our youth group for a day of hiking and rappelling. It was good for my soul as well as my girls. They are still talking about it weeks later. Cody, Sarah, Chris & Ben were fantastic and amazing with all the teenage girls. I would use them for our family explorations and suggested them to work for a team building event.

They’re pros and they’re nice guys! The Adventure Explorations staff was accessible for questions upfront and the booking process was easy. The day itself, fantastic! We were first-time fly fishers. Ben made it easy; nature made it magical. And Cody’s fresh grilled lunch set up was the perfect ending.

If you're looking for an amazing experience that you will remember and cherish forever, this is the place! My daughter and I booked a rock climbing adventure and it was all we expected and more! Cody was our guide for the day and he was extraordinary. He was knowledgable, friendly, educational, and kind. He was our biggest cheerleader and encouraged us with each step. He communicated quickly with us regarding what to expect for the day, the weather, where to meet, etc. What sets this company apart from any other is that they provide a personal experience. It was so nice to go out privately with just my daughter instead of being grouped with several strangers. Cody also took tons of amazing pictures of us at no additional cost. He provided snacks and made sure we stayed well hydrated. We will be booking another expedition very soon! Highly recommend! 10/10
