Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort in Maine is offering Canadian-at-par deals for white-water rafting trips and rustic lodging at its location on the Penobscot River.
Northern Outdoors has two locations 180 kilometres or a 2.5-hour drive apart. For experienced white-water rafters and older teens, Northern Outdoors recommends its rustic Abol Bridge Campground in Millinocket, along with rafting on the Penobscot River. The Canadian-at-par deal is valid here, but only for Penobscot River rafting and local lodging partners, not for river fees, taxes or on-site restaurant and store purchases.
Abol Bridge Campground is in the Katahdin Region in northern Maine, adjacent to Baxter State Park, about 524 kilometres east of Montreal. The rugged region is known for fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and the campground has striking views of Maine’s highest peak, Mount Katahdin, the northern tip of the Appalachian Trail. The Penobscot River features challenging white-water experiences on Class IV and V rapids.
There is a second option, but the Canadian deal does not apply here. For families with young children and first-timers, Northern Outdoors also has an adventure resort in the town of The Forks and organizes rafting on the Kennebec and Dead (West Branch) Rivers.
This property includes a main lodge, the Kennebec River Brewery that supplies a pub and a restaurant, plus a variety of one-to-five bedroom cabins, a swimming pool with a 20-person hot tub, a campground, a game area and free Wi-Fi.
