Helen, GA's, Favorite Activities

You’re not lost in the Alps: Modeled after quaint, Bavarian towns, Helen brings a distinctly European streak to Northern Georgia. But despite its looks, it’s remarkably connected to the surrounding area — natural landmarks, historic sites, local vineyards, and other villages are just minutes away, giving visitors ample choice.


Valhalla offers Tennis and Pickleball for use by guests and Valhalla Club members.
With one tennis court and two Pickleball courts, fun is just steps away. A relatively new
sport, Pickleball is often best explained as a mix of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton.
It’s played on a smaller court using paddles and whiffle balls. Racquets and balls
available daily for rent at the Valhalla Golf Pro Shop.

Bocce Ball

For those looking for something engaging but rather less intense, Valhalla also offers
Bocce Ball. A calming but strategic game, bocce ball has a historic lineage. Although
likely emerging from ancient Egypt, bocce started to hit its stride with the Romans. It
gained popularity in the U.S. with the influx of Italian immigrants at the turn of the 20th
century. Today, bocce is a relaxed, competitive way to have fun outdoors in the
pleasant company of friends.
