Louisiana: adventurer's guide to swamps, voodoo and alligators
Swampy and verdant Louisiana remains one of the most intriguing US states. A home to fascinating French culture, creole cuisine and African-rooted voodoo religion, it attracts tourists from all round the world. Any Louisiana adventure starts and ends at its most famous landmark: the swamps. Surrounding travelers from every side, those mysterious, dark and lush bayous are full of life – do not miss the opportunity to meet it face to face!
Louisiana outdoor activities take you deep into the world of slowly meandering waters of Mississippi among bald cypresses and fallen oaks. All you have to do is sit comfortably in your kayak and look carefully at the waters, hiding their secrets. Spot dozens of alligators, bears and over 250 species of birds, that inhabit country's largest river swamp – the Atchafalaya Basin. Then, head with your friends along the river to enjoy a first-class fishing: catch the catfish and bass. If you prefer sea fishing, go straight to the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy perfectly organized trolling tour, during which you will surely catch your tuna or amberjack for dinner!
If you still have no plans for holiday, look no further and book your Great Southern Adventure in Louisiana – regardless your “outdoor orientation”, this Southern gem will make you more, than happy!
