For the adventure seeker

There is not much quite like being outdoors and enjoying all that nature has to offer. One place in Gainesville that allows you to truly experience nature is Canopy Climbers. Using eco-friendly saddles and ropes, you and a group of friends as well as tree climbing professionals, such as the Canopy Climbers founder Danny Lyons, get to climb trees in select nature parks around Gainesville.  You can choose between a group climb (which requires a minimum of 10 climbers and is great for small events, parties, or reunions) or a guided climb (which requires a minimum of 2 climbers and a maximum of four climbers which is great for a small family event, a day with a few close friends or even a double date).  After you chose what kind of climb you would like, you then email Danny Lyons to reserve your event. The group climbs are $25 per climber plus an additional (required) 10%  City of Gainesville Recreation Fee for tree-climbing events in city parks and guided climbs are $75 per climber with the same 10% fee.  If you enjoy the experience, there is also a class that you can take to become even more experienced in tree climbing. Check out the website to read more about what each climb has to offer and the different add-ons you can choose from to add to your day of outdoor fun.
