Let’s Wander Where the WIFI is Weak: Great Activities for Exploring Nature

“In every walk with Nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

Nature is an integral part of our lives. The beauty of nature has been extolled in the works of poets and artists. When Wordsworth describes the daffodils dancing in the breeze or when our eyes alight on a painting by William Turner, our hearts are filled with an indescribable emotion. If only a representation can move us so much, imagine the power of the real thing.
Not merely the emotions we feel when we read or think about the Nature, it teaches us how to adapt to new conditions, reminds us that the earth is always changing, and shows us the beauty in simplicity. It helps us disconnect from the stresses of daily life and focus on finding peace and purpose in a chaotic world. Mother Nature teaches us something new every day, and there are countless ways to soak in the spirit of the outdoors. So no matter where you live or how you define yourself, these are some of the best activities to get in touch with nature.


The mountains call you and you should go. One of the easiest and most accessible ways to get a dose of nature is by setting out on a good old fashioned hike. Hiking generally doesn’t require any fancy equipment or special skills; just a sturdy pair of boots, a map, and a thirst for adventure. This versatile activity can be as relaxing or as strenuous as you make it. It is also an excellent way to lose excess pounds and improve health.

Backcountry Camping

Don’t limit yourself to just hiking when you have a weekend or longer venture specially with your friends. This is the best option to explore nature and enjoying with your besties. Backcountry camping involves packing your tent, sleeping gear, food, and water on your back to set up camp in a remote location. If you’re an experienced hiker and camper, this is an excellent way to test your survival skills and explore the untamed wilderness.

Mountain and Road Biking

Unlike long hikes through the woods, biking allows you to cover more ground and travel farther while still being immersed in nature. Mountain biking typically involves riding up and down steep slopes, between trees, and over rocks. If this sounds too intense or your tires aren’t suited for rugged terrain, consider taking a road bike or a hybrid on paved trails through forest preserves or along country roads. But be careful while enjoying nature this way.


If you learn paragliding, this is the most recreational adventure because you fly through the clouds looking the nature above the ground. It is not only and enjoyment but also a competitive adventure sport. It is incredible looking down from your seat, seeing yourself float above Earth, suspended by nothing but a canopy and a harness. Flying over the trees and mountains will surely make an immense lover of nature. But it requires proper training and a good experience of flight.

Rock Climbing

Although rock climbing is a technical sport that requires a fair amount of training and practice, it’s also one of the best ways to really get in touch with the natural environment. Climbing challenges your mind, tests your personal stamina, and encourages you to work with the forces of nature to accomplish your goals. You’ll definitely want to take a few rock climbing courses, preferably outdoors, and hire a guide before attempting to set your own anchors.


Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to travel beyond your own backyard to experience the serene beauty of nature every day. If your personality is less adventurous or your mobility restricted, consider planting a garden to grow your own vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers. Sweet fragrant flowers of different hues sweeten as my mind. It helps me in many ways. While working in the garden you can not only spend your time in a better way but also improve your health. It will bring you close to Nature and you will feel lost like Wordsworth in the beauty of blooms and blossoms around you. One of the best parts about spending time in nature is that it doesn’t have to break your budget and anyone can do it.
