Chart Your Course for an Outdoor Adventure in Orlando

Orlando’s famed attractions will have you spinning, plunging and twisting on an adrenaline-pumping adventure. But, Orlando also offers unique outdoor adventures that will get your blood rushing and your spirit soaring.

The View from up Here
Wallaby Ranch Hang Gliding Flight ParkOrlando’s varied landscape is breathtaking from the air. Green grass, spotted with lakes, rivers and natural springs, tall native palm trees and untouched forests are just a few of the sights you will enjoy as you sail over Central Florida.

Enjoy the view from more than 2,000 feet (600 meters) in the air as you glide gently back to earth at Wallaby Ranch Hang Gliding Flight Park. Don’t worry – no experience is required. You will be tethered securely to a two-person hand glider with an instructor by your side. The ride may last only 15 to 20 minutes but the experience will stay with you forever.

Perhaps you would like a longer ride? Check out the scenery from a hot air balloon excursion at sunrise, complete with champagne, and transportation to and from your hotel. Several companies offer flights in the attractions area including Bob’s Balloon Flights, Magic Sunrise Ballooning and Orlando Balloon Rides.

Feel the rush of flying in an open cockpit with the wind in your face just as they did in the golden era of flight at Fantasy of Flight, in nearby Polk County, which offers bi-plane rides seasonally from October through May.

Traveling the Waterways

With more than 2,000 lakes, rivers and springs, you’ll find that any outdoor adventure in Orlando will likely lead to water. Luckily there are lots of ways to explore our waterways from the peaceful paddling of a kayak to the wind-blown excitement of a jet-engine-propelled airboat ride. Or rent a pontoon boat for the day and explore on your own. Several companies offer airboat tours of area waterways including Airboat Adventures, Cypress Lake Airboat Tours and Big Toho Airboat Rides where you are sure to see alligators, turtles, snakes, native birds and even bald eagles. Boggy Creek’s Wildlife Safari Tour offers a bouncy, off-road trip through a working cattle ranch in search of deer, alligators, snakes, birds and even spiders.

Fun 2 Dive Scuba and Snorkeling Tours offers a daily manatee tour that allows you to learn, interact and experience the manatees in their natural environment without putting undue stress on these peaceful animals. These small tours are capped at only six people and are only offered Monday through Friday to ensure a quality experience for participants.

Off-the-Beaten Path Exploration
Orlando also offers several land-based excursions that offer unprecedented access to the natural Florida. Join a safari eco-tour at Forever Florida  and you will probably see deer, gators and feral hogs. If you are lucky you might also spot the more elusive Florida panther, black bears, coyotes and bobcats.

For some outdoor fun in the sun, head to the Richard Petty Driving Experience for some high-speed laps behind the wheel of a genuine stock car. Afterward, visit the NASCAR Café Orlando or Race Rock Supercharged Restaurant for a speedy and delicious meal.

You can also experience the natural beauty of the Orlando area on horseback. Horse World Riding Stables features 750 acres (304 hectares) of sandy riding trails. You can choose from a nature trail ride for those with little experience to an intermediate trail ride for the more skilled riders to advanced trail rides for the more expert rider. Westgate River Ranch  and Forever Florida  both offer trail rides through working cattle ranches for riders of all experience levels. For those seeking less rustic experience, the Villas of Grand Cypress Equestrian Center offers trail rides and pony rides in close proximity to the attractions area.

Or grab some wheels – two of them – and explore miles of paved bicycle trails on your own. Rent a bike or in-line skates from West Orange Trail - Bikes & Blades Co. and explore the West Orange Trail – 19 miles (30 kilometers) of paved trails near beautiful Lake Apopka. Looking for a little more speed? Rent a motorcycle for a day, week or month from Orlando Harley-Davidson. They'll even pick you up at your hotel. You must be at least 21 years of age and have a motorcycle license to rent a Harley.

Whether you prefer to soar through the air, to skim through the water or to keep your feet on solid ground, you’ll find plenty of outdoor recreation options in Orlando. So get outside and play, and soak up some of Central Florida’s natural beauty.
