Outdoor Activities

Start your adventure here...

A natural region for people with a passion for wildlife, we have Canadian geese, songbirds, abundant species of ducks and even bald eagles! In this rich and wild ecosystem, sightings of moose, fox, deer, and bear are quite common.

There's a perfect body of water for every level of experience and any length of excursion. Guided expeditions by canoe and kayak can take you far into the wilderness with expert instruction, catered meals and the best provisions. From whitewater rafting to freshwater fishing, it's all in The Maine Highlands.

With hundreds of miles of well-marked trails and three area ski mountains, both cross-country and downhill skiing are widely enjoyed. Plan a snowmobile-oriented tour and vacation for the thrill of cruising over frozen terrain or well-groomed trails. And don't forget ice fishing...to get a second shot at the one that got away!

Experience the outdoors with a bit more adrenaline in The Maine Highlands. From mountain biking to whitewater rafting, and rock climbing to the revered tradition of hunting, or the adventure of dog-sledding, the landscape here was made for extreme activities in the wild.
