Witness SLO CAL from the air for an adrenaline-packed experience, complete with a bird’s-eye view of the breathtaking scenery this region has to offer. Air adventure options include zip lining, biplane rides and skydiving.
For zip lining, head to Vista Lago Adventure Park at Lopez Lake, about 10 miles east of Arroyo Grande. You’ll find three zip lines, totaling more than 1,800 feet in length. One is designed for fun, while the other two lines are longer and more high-speed, constructed with thrill-seekers in mind. The lines also provide some of the best views of Lopez Lake. The park additionally features extensive ropes/adventure courses, which are tailored to every experience level, from beginner to advanced.
At Margarita Adventures at Santa Margarita Lake, zip line tours include six different zip lines that span more than 7,500 feet (450 meters). You’ll soar over valleys, oaks, mountainsides and vineyards. Relax after the zip line excitement by tasting wines from the vines you just zipped over—an iconic boutique winery is located just across the street.
Or channel your inner pilot, and take a ride in a biplane, the exact aircraft used to train American pilots during World War II. You’ll don a leather jacket, helmet and goggles as you experience an unforgettable adventure over the Pacific, flying above the Pismo Beach Pier or Oceano Dunes. While in the air, spot beach-goers and anglers as well as marine wildlife, such as dolphins and whales.
For an intense adrenaline rush, book a jump through a local skydiving company. Jump from above Pismo Beach for an aerial view of the stunning coastline or above Paso Robles for hard-to-beat landscapes of the Paso Robles Wine Country.
