Whitewater Rafting Maine’s Rivers Since 1976

Welcome to the best white water rafting in Maine and New England… and the raft trip outfitter who started it all. Between our Adventure Resort in The Forks, Maine (home of the Kennebec River Brewery,) and our Katahdin Basecamp next to Baxter State Park, we have two beautiful riverside, trailside lodging locations to raft Maine’s three rivers — the Kennebec River, the Penobscot River, and the Dead River — and explore Maine by trail. We have scenic river floats for family vacations and big whitewater releases for adrenaline junkies. With small to large cabins that sleep 2 to 10, Northern Outdoors is the perfect woods retreat for team building, romantic getaways, bachelor parties, family reunions, girls weekend, guys weekend, really everyone who wants to get outside and have a great time!
