Absolute Adventure Tours' seasoned guides outfit riders in gloves, goggles, and helmets before waving small groups of Polaris ATVs onto the paths that wind through Jericho Mountain State Park. Excursions begin daily at 8:30 a.m. at Absolute PowerSports and RV with a discourse about safety before patrons caravan to the park and take a spin on four-wheel-drive, automatic ATVs with windshields and storage bins for personal items or miniature conscience doppelgängers. Adventurers as young as 6 cling to parent chaperones while roadsters prowl through moss-laden bogs and take in panoramic mountain views for three hours. Frequent pit stops, including a lunch break, foster opportunities for exploration on foot. Tours wind down by 2 p.m., dispatching riders to enjoy the park by taking a dip in the lake or panning for gold.

McKinley. With another experienced climber in tow, Northeast Mountaineering's trio of climbers share their passion for the outdoors with pupils during climbs up Mt. Adams, Mt. Washington, or custom trails forged by their pet mountain goats. They also orchestrate trips to Ecuador to climb the second-highest mountain in the country, the 19,347-foot Mt. Cotopaxi. As certified Wilderness First Responders, each guide is dedicated to safe climbing techniques, which they instill in students during courses that are tailored to all skill levels.

The Sunday River Golf Club carves through the scenic Mahoosuc Mountains to form a string of challenging holes and scenic views that earned acclaim from Golf Magazine and Golfweek.

Sharp elevation changes require precise hitting and careful club selection, and the precarious tee box locations create a floating sensation as golfers send shots soaring over tree-filled valleys. To help divot-diggers limber up for the ensuing round, today's Groupon includes unlimited practice facility usage and driving range balls as well as a clubhouse lunch of one entree with a fountain drink.
