WHITE WATER RAFTING MAINE
We’ve been guiding whitewater rafting trips at Northern Outdoors in The Forks, Maine for over 40 years, but somehow Maine’s three rivers — the Kennebec River, the Dead River and the Penobscot River — are more fun every season! It must be you guys. Read your whitewater rafting trip reports, get some Maine travel tips, and meet our Registered Maine Whitewater Guides below. Post your rafting photos and other Maine adventures on Instagram with #NorthernOutdoors to be featured in our taproom.
It’s the final Dead River release of the year. The river will be running at 6000 cubic feet per second. The guides’ excitement is palpable — October may just be the most spectacular time on the river.Read more →

The Kennebec river is beautiful and was very exciting. The meal at lunchtime was truly outstanding, Much more than we were expecting!!! … The rest of the trip was fun too, with time to explore a waterfall, and a nice calm drift at the end… This trip was worth every penny! And every mile we drove to get here! The video at the end was really great and fun to watch. We can’t wait to try a Dead River trip next time.Read more →
