Chikmagalur is known for being a hotspot of adventure activities like wildlife viewing, bird watching and trekking. The small towns like Kalasa and Horanadu from where the Bhadra River flows have become rafting hotspots, and are just 90 km from the centre of Chikmagalur town. There are day-long rafting trips and kayaking. You can choose the eight-km stretch on the Bhadra, where you can experience pretty high grade rapids. Rafting expeditions up to 42 km can be organised there. Best time for rafting is during July and August.

You can also indulge in trekking opportunities that the place offers. It has many trekking trails which includes the challenging routes to Kudremukh (9.5 km, base camp Mullodi) and Mullayanagiri (3km, base camp Sarpadhari) that wind through lush shola forests and grasslands before reaching the peak. Also, one another trekking trails to Kemmanagundi, a beautiful hill station located amidst the lush forests of the Baba Budangiri hills is worth indulging in. For the Kudremukh trail, permission from the Forest Officer of Kudremukh National Park is needed (open 10:30 am - 5:30 pm). Approximately 30 km away from Chikmagalur, you will find Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary, nestled amidst the peaks of Western Ghats where you can indulge in Wildlife viewing and Bird Watching.
