Ozark Mountain Area Activities
If you are up for exciting outdoor adventures, the Ozarks Mountain area is the perfect destination for your next getaway. With the naturally beautiful landscapes of rolling green hills, meandering rivers, and towering trees combined with seasonally spectacular weather, the scene is set for an amazing adventure in the Ozarks. There are a great selection of activities that you can choose from which will really add some excitement to your upcoming vacation plans.
The Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours will provide you with some truly breathtaking excitement in the Ozarks. You can choose from various tours, or try them all out for a real adventure! The two and a half hour Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour suspends you high above the ground in the canopy of the trees and lets you sail across a suspended zip line route that stretches for over a mile. The one and a half hour Flying Prospector tour takes you on a shortened version of the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour and is ideal for those who have limited time for adventure or who are new to the zip line experience. The Blue Streak Fast Line is just 30 minutes of zip line action, but it is certainly the most thrilling 30minutes that you can spend flying on one long zip line through the canopy! The first 70 feet on the Blue Streak zip line let you zip in a "free fall" state, and the last 30 feet slowly add tension to the line. You can also enjoy a three hour Canopy Adventure Combo experience, which features both the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour and the Blue Streak Fast Line Tour.
You can have a great time on the ground in the Ozarks, too, with the Horseback Trail Rides experience. This is a more mild adventure that your whole family is sure to love. Your outdoor adventure begins when you are paired with a magnificent yet gentle steed. Atop your horse, you will travel along rustic, shady trails that have been used for over 200 years! The trails meander across 500 private acres, taking you into Dogwood Canyon, along Bear Creek, down the Trail Nobody Knows How Old, and more.
If you have ever dreamed of flying a helicopter, your trip to Branson provides you with the perfect opportunity to do so with the I Pilot Helicopter Adventure. On this tour, you will head up with your tour guide and pilot in a modern helicopter. Once you are in the air, you can take control of the steering and navigate your way over some of Branson's most famous sights such as Lake Taneycomo, Silver Dollar City, the Strip, and so much more.
The gorgeous natural landscape of the Ozarks is the ideal setting for a vacation full of adventure and excitement. Include some of these great activities in your mountain getaway!
