I have already recommended Northern Outdoors as a vacation destination for my Florida friends. It was fantastic to get out of the traffic and heat! The rafting, fishing and hiking were top notch. I was really impressed with the food at the lodge and the freshly brewed beer was fantastic! Lauren K Sarasota,...

Three years ago a group of work friends and I went to the Penobscot to go white water rafting. It was my first time ever going into white water and I was not sure what to expect. The second we hit exterminator I fell in love and have come back...

We had a great time rafting with Northern Outdoors however our trip didn't go exactly as planned. This was our second time rafting and we had heard that the Penobscot was the best in New England, so when it came time to book the river selection seemed obvious! Check in...

This was my first experience with white water rafting and Ted, our guide and his wife Julie, also a guide made the trip excellent. I was nervous to raft this river with class V rapids but they explained every rapid and gave excellent instruction so we knew exactly what to...

We had a great time rafting with Northern on the Penobscot. Greg, Luke, Chris, Alex, and Jason did a great job taking care of 23 junior high students and 10 adults. All of these guys were very professional and did a great job stressing safety and entertaining the trip in the...

My girlfriend and I recently visited Northern Outdoors for the first time and had an amazing time. Our rafting trip was so much. Not only was our guide super cool but the scenery was beautiful, and our lunch was delicious. We also went on a half-day fishing trip and we...

My son and I were in northern Maine for a moose hunt, 3rd one in 12yrs and this time we decided to stay at the Northern Outdoors lodge and I have to say that it was great. The logdominium was very clean and comfortable with good house keeping. The staff...

Recently I celebrated my wedding at Northern Outdoors Lakeside Cabins site. We met with the Event Planning team on New Years Eve, and got married in September 2012. The past nine months of planning with Dawn and her team was amazing. Being from Maine and familiar with Northern Outdoors as a...

What an amazing twofer whitewater weekend, with great friends, weather and amazing guides. Weekend started for the eight of us when we arrived at the Twin Pines Cabins on Millinocket Lake. We settled into our cabin around 2 and enjoyed the lake and sights of Katadin. After a great dinner and...

Absolutely no way to improve on this fabulous trip. The guides were phenomenal, totally expert, safe, they knew every rapid like the back of their hand, but they were light and funny, serious when needed. Great, and generous, food. Thrilling, exhilarating ride, spectacularly beautiful nature scenes. Can't possibly describe the...

For 25 years I have been asking my husband to go white water rafting. For 25 years he has been telling me I would hate it for it was too much work and I would fall out of the raft. Well for our anniversary he finally gave in but still...

I attended a bachelor party last weekend with a group of 12. We arrived on Friday evening and the great experience started with the greeting we received at the lodge. I cannot recall the name of the woman who welcomed us but could certainly tell that she loved her job...

As a first-time white water rafter I was a little intimidated to be hitting class 3/4 rapids, especially at 7:45 am following a long night of bachelor party "festivities". Tour guides Mary and Emily took any and all doubt from my mind. Their attitude, confidence, and senses of humor were...

We arrived at Northern Outdoors on Friday afternoon and were greeted at the front desk by your pleasant and efficient staff, keys were ready for our cabin and we were provided with a map. Information sheets and our lunch choices were provided for the next day’s rafting. We were disappointed...

Took a bunch of men from Massachusetts into the woods of Maine to send a man into wedlock. Not knowing what to expect we booked the Timberdoodle which was massive, accommodation was great for all of us. Live music each night since it was the holiday, huge portions in the restaurant...
