• Experience Nature in Charleston, SC with The Charleston Travel Company.

Boating , Biking & Horseback Riding in the Great Outdoors

The Lowcountry, with its harbors, salt marshes and cool green parks, was made for outdoor adventure, and The Charleston Travel Company will be delighted to introduce you the bountiful beauty of this area. Kayaks and canoes and paddle boards are available for rent, or take one of the guided eco-tours where you can experience the area’s abundant wildlife up close and personal.

Meet the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin or learn about the alligators and sea turtles of the barrier islands, take to the seas on a sailboat or a “tall ship” schooner or a luxury yacht, charter a fishing boat for an angler’s day on the ocean. If exploring on land is more your style, rent a bike and take to the winding paths of the area’s many parks or enjoy the fun of pedaling along the surf on a fat-tired beach cruiser. Let an expert show you some of the hundreds of different birds that call this area home, and try your hand at crabbing or surf casting.

If horseback riding is your pleasure, Charleston’s stables provide opportunities that will delight everyone from beginners to more experienced riders. Middleton Equestrian Center, at historic Middleton Place, offers trail rides through the beauty of this unique spot. Take the rice tour to experience a time when “Carolina Gold” was king or request the private romance ride for two. The Equestrian Center at Seabrook Island offers meandering trail rides, as well as beach rides where experienced riders can canter along the surf. If you’d rather watch than ride, try the Charleston Summer Classic, a Hunter Jumper horse show held each year on John’s Island, or join the elegant crowd at the Charleston Cup, the Lowcountry’s premier steeplechase event.
