Friends will probably be more enthusiastic about your vacation photos if there's a shot or two of you jumping from a cliff. Create those moments and other magical memories with the help of the guides behind Xcelerated Adventures. They arrange adventurous day trips from New York, three-day weekend excursions, and even overseas escapes.
The specific itineraries for these trips mix and match from more than 10 activities including bungee jumping, hiking mountain trails, and rafting down class 5 rapids. In an effort to be much more than an adrenaline rush, Xcelerated Adventures hopes to help create new friendships between likeminded people. That includes their own adventure guides, such as Chase, who's explored more than 20 countries to date, and Sara, who's been hiking since childhood.
