1. Explore by water
Grab your canoe and get out on a lake. In the early morning or at dusk on this Quest at Mascoma Lake, you might spot a loon!



2. Take a friend on their first quest
Pick your favorite quest and invite a newbie to join you. It’s always more fun with a friend! And maybe you’ll inspire a new lifelong Quester.



3. Enjoy some poetry

Feeling creative?
Try this Quest in Hanover
Written in haiku! 


4. Reach a fitness goal
Questing isn’t just fun, it’s good for you, too! Grab your pedometer and find a mountain to climb (or maybe just a hill).


5. Go on the Upper Valley Farms Super Quest
Fresh foods, beautiful views, and alpacas, too. Solve the puzzle and you’ll be entered to win the grand prize!



6. Visit a new place
Tired of the same old routine? Use our Valley Quest directory to discover a Quest in a town you’ve never visited, or a trail you’ve never noticed before.


7. Be a photographer
Bring your camera (or your iPhone!) and photograph your journey. Send us your favorite snapshots and you might see yourself in a future blog post!


9. Channel your inner architect
Look at the Upper Valley through a new lens. Try an architecture Quest, like this one that guides you through downtown Claremont, New Hampshire.


10. Eat a tasty treat
Out of syrup? Try this Quest at Sugarbush Farm and enjoy some maple candy while you’re there.


11. Be an Earthsaver
Bring a trash bag and clean up your path while you’re questing.  The planet will thank you, and so will your fellow Questers!


12. Get inside on a rainy day
Got the rainy day blues? Try an indoor Quest, like this one at the American Precision Museum in Windsor, Vermont.


13. Write your own quest
Feeling ambitious? Create your own Quest in your favorite special place. Find instructions here, and don’t forget to share it with us when you’re finished!
