Why Experience Matters
In 1976, Northern Outdoors pioneered white water rafting trips in Maine with the first descents of the Kennebec, Penobscot, and Dead Rivers. Over the years, our veteran rafting staff has helped over 400,000 guests discover the true beauty and excitement of some of the wildest white water in the East. Year after year, more people choose Northern Outdoors than any other Maine outfitter for a reason. You'll be comforted to know that you are rafting with one of the most experienced outdoor adventure companies in North America.
Quality Is Paramount
We do not contract any of our services. As Maine's Premiere Adventure Resort, we've assembled over 150 dedicated staff members so that every aspect of your adventure vacation will meet our high standards. From reservations staff, food and beverage service, housekeeping, transportation, and professional Registered Maine Guides, the Northern Outdoors team does it all. Expect the best - and get it - with the highest quality outfitter in Maine.
Is It Affordable?
White water rafting in Maine is a true adventure bargain. Unlike most sports, whitewater rafting requires absolutely no investment in equipment or prior experience. Reduced rates are available on weekdays, and our Value Season rates are the best value you'll find anywhere in Maine. Bring a larger group of friends and family and you'll raft free. Families with children 8 to 15 years old will discover big savings on weekday trips.
