Once you’ve had a leisurely breakfast in the comfort of your Park City vacation rental booked through Summit Luxury Vacations, there’s no better place to start your adventure seeker’s journey than Utah Olympic Park. Formerly the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, Utah Olympic Park remains a popular visitor destination in town, a training destination for world-class athletes, and a great place to enjoy some adventurous outings too. Here, you can enjoy time on the Extreme Zip zipline soaring over beautiful terrain at breathtaking speeds. There are also options to try an obstacle course and climbing wall as well.
After lunch, you’ll be swapping out your sky-high ziplining adventures for a thrilling time on the trails.

These tours are typically anywhere from 2 to 4 hours long and include dinner upon request. If you’re an experienced equestrian, there are options to pick up the pace on the ride as you pair an amazing Park City adventure with stunning sightseeing opportunities.

It’s equipped with a hand brake that lets you customize your thrills as you slide down nearly 3,000 feet of fun.
Once you’ve refueled with a robust lunch, it’s time to get out on the water and enjoy a rafting adventure that’s one-of-a-kind. Local companies like Destination Sports and Adventures, Park City Rafting, and All Seasons Adventures are happy to help you book a customized afternoon of on-the-water fun. Rafting excursions are typically booked at two-hour experiences and whether you set your sights on the Weber River or the Provo River, you’re in for a treat.

The final day of your adventurous stay in Park City will kick off with a sky-high view. You’ll want to be sure to book a hot air balloon for sunrise that takes you up and away for breathtaking vistas over the Wasatch Mountains and beautifully rugged skyline. Alongside your knowledgeable captain, you’ll enjoy a customized float over the terrain. Be sure to bring your camera as you’re bound to find heart-pounding views you’ll want to remember long after you’ve returned to Earth.
