Having rafted both the Penobscot and Kennebec, the excitement of the Penobscot surpasses our experience on the Kennebec. With first-time Penobscot rafters with us, we were mildly concerned that we may be biting off more than they could chew. NOT! Our guide was great - extra points for inviting multiple...

I have been rafting many times before but never on a commercially run trip, so this was my first commercial run. I was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of my trip, all the way from the website, phone registration, and check-in at the lodge to the time we left. The lodge...

Every expectation I had for this place was surpassed. I'm writing as part of the bachelor party that was there for July 8-10th. As the planner and organizer of this trip, I think it's important to mention how easy the front desk attendants made it for me to book this...

After spending two nights and rafting on the river, our family tank is "full". What an amazing trip for the four of us (incl. 10 and 14 yr old daughters.)Our trip guide, Ryan, made our first ww rafting trip as a family, a really fun experience that now our 14...

Eleven of my friends and I went up to Northern Outdoors to celebrate my best friends bachelor party. We were excited to get away for a little while and even more excited about the rafting. I can tell you now that none of us were disappointed in our trip what-so-ever....

We had such a great trip this weekend. Everything was perfect and our guides were amazing on both the 5,000cfs and 8,000cfs runs of the Kennebec (Kim and James respectively). We knew the rafting was going to be fun because we had done it before, but you guys really stood...

Working in an environment of deprevation, violence and high stress forty hours a week means that when I take a vacation, it's not only going to be adventurous and fun, but also loud, crazy and outlandish, and your staff easily handled me and our motley crue!!...

We went down the Dead River on Sat. (5/28), it would have been a great time but our guide, Emily, made it amazing - dare I say perfect. Her personality meshed so perfectly with ours; we were laughing and singing as much as we were paddling. The wait to get on...

A group of 15 took the Dead River adventure, for my brothers bachelor party. Most of the people in the group had never been rafting before in their life including myself. After the raft trip, everyone was hooked and we plan on doing a yearly adventure with Northern Outdoors. The fact...

I stayed at Northern Outdoors from 6/3/11 to 6/5/11 with 9 other guys for a bachelor party. We had a blast at the cabin where we had plenty of space to play outdoor games, swim in the lake, build a camp fire and make a little noise. We met Emily...

I recently had my bachelor party at Northern Outdoors. We had a great campsite that was a few steps off of the Kennebec River - a great spot for fishing, relaxing or going for a quick dip. The pub and brewery is fantastic, with great food, excellent beer and even...

I have been coming to Northern Outdoors with a group of close friends for almost 9 years now. We rafted on The Kennebec the first couple of years, then rafted on the both the Kennebec and the Dead in the same weekend. Last year was our first year rafting on...

We had an amazing weekend fly-fishing with Mike Pilsbury (who was incredible!) and camping at Lot 21. We caught a couple nice fish and really enjoyed our day on the water. We relaxed in the evening with a few beers and watching the Bruins at the lodge. All-in-all, it was a...

This was the 6th time that my wife and I have gone rafting with you guys, and each time is better than the last. We have done the Penobscot four times, the Kennebec once and this was our first Dead River run (and yes, we will be doing it again)....
