Yes, there’s traditional golf, but there’s disc golf too — the kind where you need a frisbee! You might try orienteering or geo-caching, since there’s no better way to learn the landscape than with a compass in hand. For a birds-eye view, try sailing the skies in an airborne glider, or climb into a hot-air balloon.
