Another Canoe the Wild 4 day Allagash canoe trip guided by Tammi and Andrew. the perfect trip for those wanting an experience on Maine’s famed Allagash River but not wanting to be gone for a week or more. While many come to Maine just to do this trip, others will combine it with other destinations while on their Maine summer vacation  including time spent on the Maine coast at such destinations as Acadia National Park, Boothbay Harbor Region and Portland which has become quite the destination for fine dining.  Be sure to check out our 2020 schedule for Allagash canoe trips and other Maine canoe trips from 3 days to a week or longer.

So you want to see a moose? While moose are most active at night during  the summer months and bed down in cool shaded areas during the day. The best time to see moose is early in the morning and evenings. Below is a moose that showed up at our recent (end of July 2019) St. Croix River canoe trip campsite about 5AM. While the St. Croix is low on the list of where to see a moose, we do come across them from time to time. Late September during rutting season is a great time to call them into view! Our very best canoe trip to see moose is on the Allagash. Early mornings and evenings are best but they can be spotted throughout the day as they leave  their beds to venture into the river to feed on aquatic vegetation. We choose campsites that are known for moose viewing. While it is not a guarantee that we’ll always see moose, I would place the chances at 95% and often we’ll see numerous moose and up close! Our last scheduled canoe trip of the season is a 6 day Allagash canoe trip from Churchill Lake to Allagash Village. We have 5 adults signed up with room for 5 more. This is a great first timers canoe trip, we provide all the equipment, meals, give instruction as needed, and take care of all the pre trip planning, transportation to our launch location and back to your vehicles at trip’s end. All you’ll need is a sleeping bag and whats on your personal gear (clothing) list. To learn more about this trip, you can start by visiting our 2019 schedule webpage. Call, email or text with any questions you may have. We can send detailed trip information and a packing list to preview.
