The Allagash flows North to our take out in -Allagash Village, on the border of Canada.

Experience a canoe trip you'll never forget.  Traverse the beautiful rivers of Maine where wildlife abounds. Bake bread using a reflector oven, and enjoy an incredible menu, while shedding the demands from our busy lives and allowing the pace of the river to guide us. Sleep out under the stars, and renew yourself in the company of conscious men. Our purpose is to provide a safe and unique adventure for each group. As we share in the activities of wilderness camping, and community, life memories are created.
