The Natural Wanderer: Outdoor Activities

Trip Itineraries

Many travelers visit Blue Ridge for its quaint shops, proximity to Atlanta, or just to cozy up in a luxury cabin for the weekend and have some time away from reality. However, for those adrenaline-seekers who enjoy a fast pace on vacation, Blue Ridge holds so much in store for you! Bursting at the seams with opportunities to experience the outdoors, North Georgia offers many excursions ranging in difficulty. Here is a sample itinerary for those who purely want to live in the moment and be outside while in Blue Ridge!

First Day:

To maximize your time in Blue Ridge, head up early to go zip lining! Soar over the Blue Ridge mountains and begin your vacation, reveling in the beauty and awe-inspiring views. If heights don't suit your fancy, book a whitewater rafting trip instead! Paddle your way through Class III and IV rapids on the Ocoee River, the site of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics! You can reserve either experience through Ocoee Rafting, so book in advance to secure your opportunity to be a dare-devil.

Second Day:

Blue Ridge, located in Fannin County, is named the Trout Capital of Georgia, so enjoy a guided fly-fishing trip either right from your cabin (if you reserved a riverfront property) or in the surrounding area! Joe DiPietro is one of our favorite guides, and no matter your fishing experience, he will give you an unforgettable experience while you chase the monster trophy rainbow trout....
