Biking at Sunday River

Get the adrenaline pumping

JUMP OUT OF AN AIRPLANE | various locations statewide | Pre-jump training and being harnessed to a certified instructor makes your 40-second free fall much less scary than you would expect. |

MOUNTAIN BIKE DOWN A SKI HILL |Sunday River Resort, Newry | Take the lift up, and ride down, with trails and stunt parks for all skill levels — plus rentals, repairs, and local medical services used to stupid injuries. |

NAVIGATE WHITEWATER RAPIDS | upper Kennebec, Penobscot, and Dead rivers | A combination of the best summer things; exciting, on the water, acceptable for the family, and in Maine. Lots of companies offer this — so choose the best fit for how long you want your ride to be. |
