Six day Allagash canoe trip from Chamberlain Lake to Round Pond. Explored the artifacts of the Allagash Logging days including the trains and tramway near Eagle Lake.

Our four day family Allagash canoe trip began on Round Pond and ended in Allagash Village. A great trip for spotting wildlife. We Paddled through easy but lively Round Pond Rips, enjoyed the scenery and great campsites. Cooking was over an open fire. A great time to rest, relax, explore and learn new skill on Maine’s Allagash Wilderness Waterway. More guided trips available with Maine guide Dave Conley of Canoe The Wild

200 mile Mountain River Canoe Trip, July 7-21, 2013 beginning at Norseman Lake and ending on the Mackenzie River, 14 days, lots of whitewater, Caribou sightings, numerous hikes and great times with friends! Spray skirts were a must! We did the trip at medium water and you had to pay attention all the time to avoid being caught off guard in a hole, boil or ending up in a channel you didn’t intend to take. Great scenery and temps ranged from below freezing at night to 80 degrees during the day while another day we had wind and spitting snow! Check out more of Dave’s trips at www.canoethewild.com
