Our wilderness setting, just 2 hours north of Portland and 1.5 hours east of Sugarloaf, is the perfect getaway for families, friends, couples, weddings -- anyone who wants a true Maine getaway. Come stay and play in Maine's Western Mountains!

When it comes to rafting, trust the oldest and most experienced whitewater rafting company in Maine: Northern Outdoors. We pioneered rafting in Maine, with the very first descents and commercial operations on the Kennebec, Penobscot, and Dead rivers starting in 1976.


Northern Outdoors - Here we come!







We also offer daily afternoon float trips if thrilling action isn’t your style. After a day of rafting, relax in our outdoor hot tub at the main lodge, overnight in a tent or cabin, and sip a handcrafted brew in our Kennebec River Brewery. Northern Outdoors is located 1.5 hours from Sugarloaf on Route 201, in The Forks, Maine.
