Maine Canoe Trips

Visit Maine this summer for some of the best wilderness canoeing in North America. The St. Croix River is one of Maine’s finest canoe & kayak trips known for its moderate whitewater and can be paddled all summer long. Other Maine destinations known for their scenic and recreational value- as well as their wilderness and wildlife- include the Allagash and Penobscot Rivers. Trips can be day tours, weekend getaways or longer. Canoe trips are a great way to rest, relax, explore and spend quality time with friends and family. Swim, fish, view wildlife, cook over an open fire and learn a new skill. Laugh around the campfire, star gaze and listen to the sounds of loons. Back country canoeing and camping has a way of bringing the best out of everyone. Choose the northeast for your next family vacation or group outing on a canoe camping trip and discover Maine as a top destination for wilderness adventure.
