Do you love the great outdoors? If so, San Antonio is an excellent place for exploration. Although you and friends can do things on your own, you would probably get more out of a taking a nature tour. That way, you have someone who knows the best spots to hit, giving you the best chance to see the most amazing things.
Natural Bridge Caverns
Without question, the Natural Bridge Caverns tour is one of the most incredible adventures in San Antonio. Because this is considered a “down and dirty” tour, make sure that you are up for the challenge. The thing that you will love most is that you will have the same experience that explorers had from more than 60 years ago. However, there is no need to worry since they have a highly experienced staff. In other words, you do not have to figure anything out on your own.
Instead, you and your friends will get outfitted with the right equipment to ensure your safety while being lowered into a 22-inch shaft that takes you down 160 feet. If needed, you can always close your eyes while descending. But if you do that, you will miss some of the grandeur that this underground cave offers. Once at the bottom, open your eyes to see delicate and rare formations. In fact, this San Antonio nature tour will reveal one of North America’s longest “soda straw” formations.
Another great tour in San Antonio involves a trip to Enchanted Rock. Spread over 1,643 acres on Big Sandy Creek, this National Nature Landmark is stunning. The rock itself is a granite exfoliation dome with a pink color. As it rises 425 feet, you cannot help but be impressed. Not only is the trek fantastic thanks to the beautiful greenery throughout the area, you and your friends have a chance to see the largest batholith in the U.S.
What better way to see the gorgeous outdoors than from a kayak? Mission Adventure Tours offers the best kayaking services that you will find. No experience? No problem. With a professional and experienced staff and all of the safety equipment that you need, you can relax, or at least try to, as you make your way down the river.
You can take a 2-mile kayaking trip without a guide if you want, but there is also a 2-mile guided tour. That tour includes maneuvering through two small chutes and rapids. You can go anytime Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Of course, if you want a little more adventure, you might consider the 3-mile or 4-mile guided tours.
