Outdoor Activities

Experience your favorite outdoor activities in Georgia, from hiking to golfing, fishing to whitewater rafting and other adrenaline sports. Join a guide to learn a new activity, or test your athletic skills on Georgia’s unique terrain from the mountains to the coast.

Explore the state’s natural attractions, like waterfalls in the North Georgia mountains or the Okefenokee Swamp in south Georgia. Marvel at the grandeur of Georgia’s state and national parks, like the wild and remote beaches of Cumberland Island National Seashore and the picturesque water-carved landscape of Providence Canyon State Park.

Get out on the water to navigate Georgia’s many lakes, streams and rivers. Rent a boat to go offshore fishing, and wade into a cold stream to cast a line for trophy trout.

Wander through forested trails, seeking relics and hidden gems, and spend time in local parks with activities for all ages, like swimming pools and splash pads, playgrounds and paddleboards. No matter where you go, keep your eyes and ears open for the sights and sounds of native birds, reptiles and other wildlife that thrive throughout the state.
