Many of life's greatest pleasures lay off the beaten track, which is the only ecosystem capable of supporting donut trees, herds of wild trampolines, and vast fields of Nerf. Take a sojourn from the paved path with today's Groupon: for $112, you get a two-hour off-roading adventure for up to four people at Adventure Haus in Midway (a $224 value). Off-road vehicles can be rented at 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4:30 p.m.
Nestled within the Zermatt Resort, Adventure Haus maintains a fleet of street-legal Polaris Razor off-road vehicles, which allow adventurers and nature-lovers alike to drive straight from the resort without hauling them in a trailer. Resembling an open-air, door-less jeep with your father's eyes and your mother's propensity for tummy-blowing, each four-seat off-roader is a moving window that treats you to stunning vistas as you rumble along the trails from the quaint village of Midway to Cascade Springs, before following the ridgeline road to Snake Creek Canyon and coasting back down through Wasatch Mountain State Park. The Polaris Razor is a safe conveyance for all ages, and gives shutterbugs the freedom to stop any time they'd like to snap shots of frolicking mountains.
Adventure Haus uncovers the excitement hidden in Utah's landscape year-round with wilderness excursions that make use of the land, water, and air. During the warmer months, guides take guests horseback riding around the verdant Wasatch Mountains, whitewater rafting down the foamy currents of the Weber River, or on a hot-air balloon flight to visit Utah's only cloud museum. When winter's wind puts a sting in the air, the activities shift to cover everything from a tranquil snowshoeing hike to a 60-second adrenaline-pumping bobsled ride down Salt Lake City's Olympic course, where an experienced driver accelerates passengers up to 80 miles per hour. In addition to leading outings, Adventure Haus also helps people set off on their own by renting out equipment ranging from mountain bikes and boats to skis and snowboards.
