Trip Highlights from 2015. River trips including the Allagash canoe trip, St. Croix River, Cascapedia, NE Mistassibi river trip, Liard River Trip, Yukon Canada and Penobscot Rivers. also a few pictures from a moose photography outing and moose hunting wall tent base camps in the North Maine Woods. My 2016 schedule Maine canoe trips includes 3 day, 4 day and longer trips on Maine  and Canadian rivers. Most canoe trips are for the beginner, and no extreme workouts or conditioning required before you trip. An active life style including walking and stretching for a few weeks prior to the trip is helpful. Canoe trips are fully outfitted and guided. More information is available at Canoe the Wild.com

September 15, 2015, East Grand Outdoor Education High School students teamed up with North Haven students for a day of canoeing on the upper reaches of the Penobscot River. Students acquired new skills, gained confidence and experienced personal growth while having lots of fun! Check out Canoe the Wild and Maine Guide Dave Conley to explore other day and overnight canoe trips options for school groups, church youth groups, boy scout and girl scout troop outings in Maine. Maine canoe trips that offer whitewater canoeing include Webster Stream, St. John River, Chase Stream Rapids in the Allagash River and the St. Croix River. 

St. Croix River canoe trips are fun for all ages and experience levels! A great river for a novice to learn corrective canoe strokes in easy whitewater. We’ve had beginners from ages 6 to 76 on the St. Croix. Camping is in tents and cooking is done over the open fire. Trips can be 3 to 5 days, or 6-7 days when starting on Spednic Lake. Maine guides take care of all the logistics including providing all the gear and meals and having vehicles shuttled to the takeout location.  Discover Maine as a top summer destination and plan your 2016 vacation around a guided canoe trip and river tour on the Allagash or St. Croix River with Dave Conley and Canoe the Wild.

The Liard River canoe trip is a great way to experience a remote ten day wilderness canoe trip in Canada’s northwest. This Yukon  trip begins in Caribou Lake, a high Mountain lake nestled between the Cassiar and Pelly Mountains and ends 10 or 11 days later at  the Liard Crossing on the Alaska Highway where our van will take us back to Whitehorse. The fishing is great, and you can catch Artic grayling and bull trout. Explore old trapper cabins and ruins from gold prospectors of days gone by. Known as the ‘land of the midnight sun’, offered in August so we have some darkness and opportunities for seeing the northern lights (aurora borealis). Well suited for the novice paddler and outdoors person, you’ll want to have good basic canoe handling and camping skills. Trip meets and ends in White Horse, Yukon where we meet up with our Canadian associates. Contact Dave Conley of Canoe the Wild to discuss this and other opportunities in Maine and Canada.
