Jackson Hole is known for its gorgeous and entertaining outdoor activities and views. While there are many rugged and adventurous activities to try, if you’re a senior and looking for a more relaxed pace or low-key experience, there are plenty of options.
Whether a senior is in fantastic shape, uses an in-home care service, or is healthy and simply needs a little extra help getting around, it's important that he or she has excursion options while visiting Jackson Hole. Here are some fun activities for seniors to enjoy in Jackson Hole this summer.
1. Fly Fishing
Fly fishing is a great activity for seniors that enjoy spending time on the water. Fly fishing doesn’t require too much moving and seniors with all different abilities can participate in this entertaining pastime. Fly fishing allows seniors to spend time on the water and gives them the chance to experience all Jackson Hole has to offer.
Seniors can fly fish with a guide, or if they are experienced boaters, they can rent a boat to fly fish on their own. Fly fishing is easy to learn and is an activity that younger family members and friends can join in on too.
2. Take a Scenic Flight
As seniors may not be able to hike and bike through Jackson Hole’s beautiful landscapes, that doesn't mean that they can’t enjoy the view. Seniors can take a scenic flight over Jackson Hole and see the spectacular view from 12,000 feet in the air. Scenic flights are a great option for seniors that want to take an adventure but may not physically be able to.
Scenic flights are a unique excursion for tourists and will provide people with views that they will never forget. Like fly fishing, this is another exciting activity that people of all ages can partake in and have fun doing this summer. Whether a senior is traveling with a spouse, children, grandchildren, or even alone, a scenic flight is an excursion worth trying.
