The Combo Day Trips combine rock climbing or rappelling with kayaking to create the ultimate multi-adventure experience. We are launching this program at Chickies Rock County Park in Lancaster County.
The first half of the day you’ll climb or rappel Chickies Rock’s 85ft rock face and enjoy spectacular views of the Susquehanna River. The second half of the day you’ll enjoy a guided 4-mile kayak tour of the mighty Susquehanna. The river is tranquil, the scenery is beautiful and at times you feel like you’re traveling through a wildlife refuge. You even get to view the rock face of Chickies Rock that you climbed or rappelled.
We provide a shuttle van to transport everyone with the kayaks 12 minutes to the put-in. The kayaking trip concludes at the parking area so no shuttle is required at the end of the trip.
You’ll receive lots of instruction from your professional guides for all activities and all gear is provided. For climbing/rappelling: helmets, harnesses, climbing shoes. For kayaking: paddle, life jacket with whistle, kayak, waterproof bag and compartment.
Great for first time and the more experienced climbers, rappellers and kayakers.

If there are less than 4, we can still run the trip, but with the below pricing schedule. Since we understand that the increase in price can be a barrier, refunds and rescheduling options are available for those who do not want to go on the trip with less than 4 participants. We will contact you 2 days prior to your trip date if there are less than 4 people booked to determine how you’d like to proceed.
