We don’t know how the weather is where you are, but summer temperatures here in Park City, Utah can climb into the triple digits. This makes water-based activities all the more appealing when you still want to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. That’s why river kayaking is up there as one of our favorite outdoor summer activities when the temperature climbs sky high. If you’ve never been kayaking on a river before, be sure to seek out a slow-moving river with class I rapids and always wear a life jacket. Better yet, pair up with a local expert to help steer you through rough water, dangerous obstacles, and ensuring you will have all the safety gear you’ll need to have fun and get home safe! Not sure if the river is your go-to spot? Renting a kayak to take out on your local lake is another great option when you’re just learning the basics of paddling. Either way, don’t forget to pack snacks – like this recipe for Bear Bites Trail Mix – and plenty of water.
