Guided Backpacking Trips
Appalachian Trail. Sounds beautiful to say – but, experiencing the Appalachian Trail with a professional guide that has a great passion for the outdoors is an adventure like no other. Join a group for a 2 day and 1  night backpacking trip. Start your journey at Maryland’s historic Harpers Ferry and your adventure has just begun.

Caving Adventures
Not all Outdoor Adventures take place on the surface of the Earth. Some take place in hidden worlds underneath the soil you stand on. Experience the mystery as you venture through a cave led by experienced Outdoorsman (or Outdoorswomen!) who love to crawl, slither, and get dirty! Learn the basics of Cave exploration and safety as you acquire new skills! We provide the gear including helmets and headlamps – you bring the enthusiasm to compliment your Caving Tour guides!

River Tubing
Tubular! That’s what you will say during our River Tubing Tours! Ahhh – relaxing as you float down the Patapsco River for 1.8 miles for up to  4 hours (depending on the water level) – the tranquility is like no other. Well – until you get wet! This tour is self-guided. Transportation of the fully inflated tubes is required so you must have a vehicle large enough. When your River Tubing Tour is complete just deflate the tubes and return back to your base camp. Terrapin Adventures supplies the tubes, life jackets and tie downs if needed.

Bike Tours
From Nature Bike Tours to Barbecue Bikes Tours to Wine and Cheese Bike Tours – we can tickle your Biking Fancy. Enjoy comfortable mountain bikes. Learn the basics of bicycling including shifting gears, braking, and road safety.
