There is far more awaiting the discerning traveler in the Poconos than just ski resorts. Independent adventures will reveal some of her secrets, but great guided experiences will help you unlock the true majesty of the Pocono Mountains. The following are a few of the top Poconos tours you won’t want to miss out on while you’re here.
Book Guided Segway Poconos Tours
The Poconos has long been loved by outdoor adventurers for its tantalizing maze of mountain trails that await discovery. While it can be thrilling to trek these routes solo, there’s a lot to be gained from making the most of a guided tour as well. The team at Camelback Mountain Adventures offers a one-of-a-kind guided Segway Tour that takes to the trails in a new kind of style. Led by your knowledgeable and friendly guide, those who book their place on this guided Segway tour will enjoy exploring the trails of Camelback Mountain at a faster clip than would be achieved on foot. These all-terrain vehicles travel seamlessly through Big Pocono State Park and as you roll along, your guide will take time to point out incredible plants, flowers, wildlife, and of course, some unsurpassed views too. Big Pocono State Park is packed with impressive cliffs that are sure to inspire incredible photos. Because you’ll be exploring these dynamic areas, this tour is best suited to teens and adults. The Poconos Tours can be booked as private experiences or with a group of up to six travelers at a time.
Enjoy ATV Tours
For those that can’t imagine their Poconos getaway without some adrenaline-pumping fun included, partnering up with Poconos ATV is a must! An ATV tour is an amazing way to get a new perspective on this region’s fantastic terrain while indulging a passion for adventure as well. This company owns over 200 acres of land in Memorytown, giving riders the feeling of endless options when it comes to exploring backcountry mountain trails. These tours are designed for riders 18 years of age and up. Once you’ve booked your tour, you’ll be given an introduction to how your full-size ATV works and prepped with all of the safety gear needed too. Once you’re feeling comfortable with your vehicle, it’s off to the trails behind your guide to make the most of off-road fun and adventure that promises to be one of a kind! During the spring and summer months, Poconos ATV is open seven days a week between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm making this tour a convenient one to fit in anywhere on a busy travel schedule.
Give Kayaking a Try
For all of the land-based fun that the Poconos offers up in abundance, this area is just as renowned for its pristine lakes and waterways. Those who are looking to balance out their trail tours with some time on the water won’t want to miss an opportunity to give kayaking a try while they’re in town. While there is a list of rivers and lakes worth checking out, renting a kayak at Lake Wallenpaupack is simple and convenient when you head over to the Pine Crest Marina. This beautiful lake offers up plenty of options for observing marine life, birds, plants, and flowers from your own pace and from the comfort of a kayak. Kayaks are rented by the hour and are available between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm in the summer on a first-come first-serve basis. If you’re new to kayaking, a guided experience is readily available upon request with marina staff.
Sometimes, getting into nature is best paired with opportunities to get up close to amazing animals too. When this is the case, booking a horseback riding tour with the team at Mountain Creek Riding Stables is the way to go. There’s no need to be an expert equestrian to make the most of the fun. The guides at Mountain Creek Riding Stables specialize in helping new and intermediate riders enjoy every moment of their trail tour. Mountain Creek Riding Stables is loved for their affordable pricing and comprehensive introduction to horses and how to ride the trails safely and enjoyably. The company offers private and group trail rides as well as offering pony rides for those who are in town with little ones just starting out. Once you’re geared up and ready to go, you’ll hop on your horse and explore nearby mountain trails behind your guide. They’ll point out interesting facts, plants, flowers, and wildlife along the way, while hopefully instilling a love for riding as well! The stables are located in Cresco and the staff has a great reputation for being extra friendly, informative, and welcoming!
