Looking for a great Maine summer vacation? Need a canoe guide and outfitter? Canoe the Wild offers guided canoes trips on the Allagash from 4- 8 days in duration. The Allagash Wilderness Waterway is Maine’s best known canoe trip and has attracted paddler’s for more than a century. Henry David Thoreau ventured into this region more than 150 years ago by traveling into the Allagash via the Mud Pond Carry from the West Penobscot watershed. The legendary Allagash is Maine’s only designated Wild and Scenic River.

Allagash canoe trips are popular with families, scouts, teens, summer camps, as well as adult and youth groups. With its easy flowing river sections and its moderate whitewater on Chase Stream Rapids, the Allagash is well suited for ages 12 and up. It is one of the few eastern rivers that can be paddled for a week or longer without coming into contact with modern civilization.

If you’re hoping to encounter wildlife, the Allagash is where you want to be. It has consistently been our best Maine canoe trip for spotting wildlife, including moose and eagles. With numerous put in and take out locations, outings can be planned from four to ten days. Pictures below are of a September canoe trip on the Allagash during 2017

The Allagash Wilderness Canoe trip in northern Maine is a great place to vacation.

The St. Croix River is Maine’s best canoe trip for families and groups with little or no experience! Book a trip this summer from 1-4 days for your family or group Maine adventure!

The St. Croix River is dam controlled which means it is runnable all summer long. With miles of quick water and numerous class I-II rapids, it’s easy to see why the St. Croix is one of Maine’s best canoe trips. The Fall foliage season is a great time to canoe the St Croix and often we have the river to ourselves.

Well suited for families and groups of all ages with little or no experience, the St. Croix is a great river to learn basic paddling and camping skills. The more advanced paddler will appreciate the quick water, numerous rapids and may even want to try their skill at solo paddling or canoe poling.

Paddling from Vanceboro to Little Falls makes for a relaxing day trip. Little Falls is a great spot to swim, fish, rump bump and have lunch with the opportunity to paddle or pole a class II rapid.

Campsites located on the river’s edge are rustic with picnic tables, fire pit and an outbox. We camp in tents and cooking is done over an open fire. A more relaxed schedule allows time to swim fish read a book and enjoy quality time with friends and family.

With numerous starting and ending points, choose a trip 1-5 days in duration. Dave and his team can take care of all your trip logistics including outfitting, shuttling of vehicles to the take out point, meals, instruction when needed and safely guide your family or group up to 25 in number.
