Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon, which gets you one of the following two-and-a-half-hour outdoor adventures from PaddleFish Kayaking, located on the banks of Lake Fontana in Bryson City, North Carolina (about a three-hour drive from Atlanta):
- for $18, you get a Great Smokys Ghosts & Legends Hike (a $40 value)
- for $30, you get a Fontana Family Lake Kayak Adventure (a $55 value)
The passionate outdoorsfolk and oarmongers at PaddleFish help connect nature-starved families to the lush beauty of the southeastern United States. During the Great Smokys Ghosts & Legends Hike, experienced guides will get their troupes of trampers in the mood for Halloween with a three-mile stroll through the Smoky Mountains, with scheduled stops at abandoned tunnels, spooky graveyards, and forgotten settlements. Your guides will keep your spine thoroughly tingled and bones healthily chilled with murderous legends and frightening ghost stories as you amble among the mountains’ eventide shadows.
The Fontana Family Lake Kayak Adventure begins with friendly explorers tutoring eager aquanauts on the basic techniques of kayaking and safety procedures, then launches water-cutters of all levels into Lake Fontana. En route, learned guides will regale boaters with Appalachian lore, tales of early pioneers, and the importance of hipster irony in the Cherokee culture. As the tour unfolds, imaginations are free to conjure the fertile frontiers of old and discover why hope floats.
Hiking or kayaking with PaddleFish Kayaking is a great chance to get in touch with local wildlife, such as bald eagles, otters, kingfishers, and amphibious Pac-Men. Fair-weather paddlers needn't fret over their lack of home-owned equipment; PaddleFish will provide the sea kayak, paddle, and stylish personal flotation device, but encourages both river ramblers and hikers to bring bottled water, sunscreen, sunglasses, a sunbonnet, and water-resistant sun shoes, such as plasmatic sandals and fusion flip-flops. Take a deep breath of freshly haunted or water-sprayed air with today’s Groupon to PaddleFish Kayaking.
