Adventure

Relaxing on vacation just isn’t your thing. Don’t worry, New Hampshire’s high peaks, miles and miles of trails, and soaring mountain views are sure to keep even the most adventurous traveler busy. Our hikes are legendary, including 48 4,000 footers and a section of the Appalachian trail, plus plenty of shorter, easier hikes that still offer spectacular views.

Hop on an ATV and traverse the state on an endless network of trails, get strapped in for a high-flying zipline ride, or bike along a scenic recreational rail trail. Head out into the countryside on horseback, or search for wildlife in a canoe or on one of our popular moose tour adventures.

For you, a vacation isn’t complete without a trip to the lake, beach or ocean! Luckily, in New Hampshire we have plenty of places to splash around. There are lake and oceanfront beaches to relax on, around 1,300 lakes and ponds for fishing, boating, and paddling, and more then 100 waterfalls to explore and admire.

Wake up early one morning and head for the coast to board a deep sea fishing charter, or wait until evening and enjoy a dinner cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee or Sunapee.

The kids (and adults) will have a blast at one of our waterparks; we have indoor and outdoor parks so you can hit the waterslides rain or shine!
