Been There, Done That: Let’s get extreme!

Usually when you take a bunch of lunatics screaming, “extreme!” every five minutes, you’ve got all the essential elements of a plot for a reality TV show. Throw said band of lunatics in a raft, paragliding harness, or repelling rig, and you’ve got the makings for a pretty awesome weekend in Austria. Did I mention I was one of those lunatics? Extreme!

Outdoor Recreation’s Extreme Weekend trip to Austria includes white water rafting, canyoning, and your choice of paragliding or sky diving. It’s an adventure a step above your average city tour when it comes to thrills and adrenaline. In some cases, it was more of a leap off a mountain then a step.


Austria never failed to take my breath away, no matter the angle I viewed it from, and this trip certainly offered plenty of opportunities to look. Whether I was repelling down a waterfall or floating 3,000 feet in the air, Austria offers so much more than can fit into a single weekend. I came back with some bruises, amazing memories, and dozens of things I still wanted to do.


So if you’re looking for an adventure on the wild side, why not plan your own extreme weekend trip or check out what Outdoor Rec has to offer. I might have been to Austria, but I’m certainly not ready to cross it off the done list just yet. I’ll hold off on the extreme adventuring for a while though and try out something a little more relaxing instead. Kayaking anyone?
