We had such a good time with Northern Outdoors for my bachelor party. We did whitewater rafting on the Kennebec river, and it was a blast the whole way down. The guides we had (Victor and Brandi) were very knowledgeable and made everything extra fun for us. The property is beautiful...

We drove over 4 hours to get to Northern Outdoors (much more with traffic), and would do it again in a heartbeat! Our entire experience was outstanding. The cozy cabin was clean and comfortable and had charming furnishings. The lodge had very friendly and helpful staff and had every amenity to...

It was a trip to recharge the battery, open your eyes, and to test your limits. I like to eat, first and foremost for me the food was incredible. The chef gets 5 stars from me, he keep a fat guy happy. We stayed in a cabin which was awesome, full...

This was our third trip to Northern Outdoors as a family with our seven children and their friends. The kids are always excited to go, ranging in ages 17 - 30 yrs. This year we decided to get married there and surprise the kids after our rafting. Besides excellent guides (...

We had a great time. We came up for a weekend rafting and rented a cabin for seven guys. We chose Northern because it had it all in one place -- cabins, rafting, dining & activities. The cabin was awesome! Plenty of room for all and well maintained. We really enjoyed...

I'll start right off by saying that I had a great time from the moment I arrived to when I left. Being my first river - rafting experience, I didn't know what to expect, but I do know that I had a lot of nervous excitement that could have gone...

A bunch of "old" folks at the brink of turning forty wanted a weekend of fun, fresh air and excitement, away from kiddos, work and home chores. We were absolutely thrilled that we achieved that and more when we came for a weekend of camping and rafting! Reserving campsites in advance,...

The trip down the Penobscot was a blast! We had a great crew on our raft lead by awesome guide Kris. It was a beautiful day and an early season trip so we had a lot of fun playing on the river with some great surfing and swims. All of the...

The day our family scheduled to run the Penobscot River was a complete downpour. I know they do this all the time in all weather, but I still had my doubts that it would be quite as much fun. No worries, it turns out. Our awesome guide Luke and the rest...

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...

I recently traveled to Northern Outdoors to celebrate my best friend's bachelor party. It was the perfect trip for the occasion because it got a group of 17 friends together for a trip that I'm sure we'll talk about for years. The cabin was perfect to house everyone, and the rafting...
