Outdoor adventures offer a wide variety of possibilities for those with an active lifestyle. From a fitness perspective, some might question why they should venture into the outdoors when they could easily go to their regular gym. Though climbing an artificial rock wall may be a good workout, it can hardly be expected to match the challenge of climbing in a natural environment that has been chaotically sculpted over the course of thousands of years.

Whether you are planning to participate in a group or individually, outdoor adventures can be both difficult and entertaining. Paintball fields, both indoor and outdoor, have become more popular in recent years, and they often offer scenario games which reenact historic battles. Mountain biking is also an option, depending on the terrain, and in some places you can rent bikes if you don't have your own.

If you prefer an aquatic venue, outdoor adventures are just as abundant there. Whitewater rafting can be a new experience for a beginner or an annual event for an experienced veteran. Many adventure companies will also offer kayaking clinics, teaching both basic and advanced skills on calm or fast-moving water.

Outdoor Adventures for Team Building

There is no reason for outdoor activities to be an individual pursuit, nor a purely recreational one. Many outdoor companies cater to a corporate crowd, such as ropes courses that are intended to develop teamwork and trust. Day trips and overnight excursions are both options, depending on your schedule and budget.
