Are you the type of person who loves a challenge? Do you automatically reply, “Where and when?” when given a dare to do something? If you answered yes to these two questions, we have the perfect challenge in one of the most beautiful areas in North Carolina.

The Eco-Adventure Challenge is a two-day event designed to show you the scenic highlights of the Outer Banks, NC while you participate in a number of fun activities. The schedule for the challenge has been created by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, who have the true inside scoop on the best things to do in the area.
