Yurt camping and Moose safari

5.0 rating
September 20, 2020

My friend and I stayed in a yurt, and it was so clean and comfy! Our guide on the moose safari was Bryce. He was knowledgeable about the area and we had a great time. There are a lot of awesome hiking options just a short drive from the campsite, and we were able to do some pretty remote hiking, which was one of our goals. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend! We’re already discussing when we should come again next year to do some rafting and “moosing”.

Moose Safari - LDW 2020

We booked a moose safari for Labor Day Weekend as a birthday present for my partner’s mom. She’s been coming to Maine for 40 years and had never seen a moose. This experience is well worth the money. Kurt was a great guide—super friendly, positive, and informative. He also brought coffee for us at 6 am; a savior, no doubt. We saw two cows on our tour as well as beautiful Maine scenery along the way! So a raving success! Kurt also recommended some local shops and restaurants for us to visit during our time in town, and he actually took us on a short tour in the van to see where they were before we ended the safari. Jess was a great help in booking, especially because we had some last minutes back and forth changes. Experience was great from start to finish. Highly recommend.

Penobscot Rafting trip 8/20 and Moose Canoe 6am 8/21

I want to thank the staff at Northeast for making our White Water Rafting and Moose Canoe trips a great adventure! The staff at the office were helpful and welcoming. It was run like a well oiled machine and you can tell that everyone there enjoyed their job.
Julia was our guide for the White Water rafting and Bryce for our Moose canoe trip. Both were engaging, knowledgeable, personable and fun. I learned more from both of them about Maine, its inhabitants human as well as animal than I could learn by reading a book. A lot of the staff have come back year after year as they truly love their jobs and it shows. I would highly recommend them or any of the other guides. A great way to experience Maine and have a boat load of fun at the same time.
We will definitely be back!

I had 6 kids aged 12-17 with me last Friday 8/21 on the KENNEBEC tour and we had an incredible time! Our guide Harrison was amazing! He knew so much and was so passionate about his job and really cared that everyone was having a great time. The lunch stop was great with surprisingly good food given that it has to be rafted in. You can tell all of the staff really love their jobs. I am 50 and it was my first time, and now that I have experienced it, it won’t be my last. This was a highlight of our Maine vacation. Thank you for providing great service and an unforgettable memory for my family.

Great Family Fun on the Kennebec River

We have rafted the Snake River in Wyoming several times and the American River in Northern California. Our trip on the Kennebec River was our best rafting experience by far. Our Guide Kurt was great. In addition to my wife and I we had 6 inexperienced rafters in our raft. Kurt was great at instructing them and all of us had lots of fun. Wonderful staff served an awesome picnic lunch. The photos of the trip were first rate as well.
