3 Outdoor Adventures in Massachusetts That You Don’t Want to Miss

Addicted to adrenaline? Do you live to push the boundaries, and as far as you are concerned, that’s the only way to go through life? Luckily for you, Massachusetts is loaded with exciting, one-of-a-kind outdoor adventures. From sand dunes to rivers to forests and coastline, there is certainly no shortage of ways to give your adrenaline a run for its money. That being said, here are three that we think can’t be missed:

Whitewater Rafting

While Crab Apple offers several different outdoor adventures at their Massachusetts location, there is only one whitewater rafting course that is considered a Class IV, and that’s the Deerfield River – Monroe Bridge Section. If an adrenaline rush is your goal, this five-mile course in the Berkshires will not disappoint. Just take a look at some of the names of the drops:
  • Devil’s Odds
  • Landslide
  • Dragon’s Tooth
  • The Terminator
Clearly, you are in for an intense few hours. This course may start out with Class II rapids, but as the excursion continues, you will realize that it’s not for the faint of heart. Our guides are true experts that will maneuver the rapids with precision, and you better be prepared to paddle like a champion. Best Outdoor Adventures

Aerial Obstacle Course

When you want a bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous Massachusetts landscape, an aerial obstacle is an outdoor adventure you need to make time for. Covering over 10 acres of pristine forest in Lanesborough, Massachusetts, Ramblewild lets you float, climb, and swing through the trees. Their central bi-level platform (at 10 and 15 feet high) is the starting point for eight different aerial obstacle courses. While each one is slightly different, they will each include between 15 and 17 obstacles that you must make your way through, such as balancing logs, zip lines, high wires, and rope ladders. With an outdoor adventure at Ramblewild, you can experience the Massachusetts forest in a way you only dreamed was possible.


When you think of an adrenaline rush, skydiving is one activity that almost certainly comes to mind. You are jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet above the air—if that doesn’t require some crazy guts, we don’t know what does. Skydive Barnstable provides a Massachusetts outdoor adventure that you won’t soon forget. However, the company is focused on providing safe jumps for first timers, so they only offer tandem jumps. Still, that’s a great way to introduce yourself to the sport and test out just how gutsy you really are. As you can see, Massachusetts is the place to be if you are looking for an unforgettable outdoor adventure. While we at Crab Apple can’t arrange a skydive or an aerial obstacle course, we happen to be the pros at whitewater rafting in Massachusetts. Even if you are looking for something with a little less of an adrenaline rush, we have the perfect rafting trip for you and your family.
