Northern Outdoors Rafting & Adventure Resort
Raft with Maine's original whitewater rafting outfitter & outdoor adventure resort
When it comes to rafting, trust the oldest and most experienced whitewater rafting company in Maine: Northern Outdoors. We pioneered rafting in the state of Maine in 1976, with the very first descents and commercial operations on the Kennebec, Penobscot and Dead rivers. Northern Outdoors is still offering the best whitewater rafting adventures on Maine's rivers, with trips daily May through October. Big water in the spring, warm water in the summer, and incredible foliage in the fall...there's no bad time to be outside on Maine's rivers!
After a day of whitewater rafting, relax in our outdoor hot tub at the main lodge, overnight in a tent or private 2-4 bedroom cabin, and sip a handcrafted brew from our on-site Kennebec River Brewery. Northern Outdoors is located 4 hours from Boston, MA and 2 ½ hours from Portland, ME on Route 201, The Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway in The Forks, Maine.
