|The Saco River |
The finest canoeing in New England
Saco Bound offers complete canoe rental programs, including the highest quality canoes, touring kayaks, accessories and maps. Our staff has years of experience in river sports and are always happy to offer tips and advice.
The most popular part of the Saco - from our headquarters in Conway, New Hampshire to Hiram, Maine - offers some of the most beautiful and pleasurable canoeing in the world. Cool crystal clear waters gently flow over a white sand bottom flanked by miles of beaches and spectaular views of the White Mountains.
The Saco River is perfect for day or overnight trips. A half-day trip from our headquarters would take you 7 miles (4 hours) to our Landing above Swan's Falls. A full-day trip might take you 11 miles to our 30 acre wilderness campsite. The River is famous for canoe camping and an overnight trip usually brings you to Lovewell Pond (22 miles), while a 3 to 4 day trip takes you to Hiram, Maine. Other trips are available as well and Saco Bound also specializes in family trips.
Magalloway Wildlife Refuge/Androscoggin River
Just above the Errol Dam, there is a vast easily accessible lake and river area that encompasses the USA's newest National Wildlife Refuge, The Magalloway River - Umbagog Lake Refuge. Saco Bound/Northern Waters can outfit you with either canoes or touring kayaks for trips in this beautiful wilderness area. One of the outstanding features of this area is that, although it is a true wilderness, access is easy and canoeing trips are easily negotiated.
One to four day trips are available in this area, and camping is available.
|At our Northern Waters Center, in Errol, New Hampshire, we teach paddlers the techniques of paddling safely with a sense of quality that might be called style. Our staff is made up of highly qualified teachers chosen for their maturity, teaching ability and paddling skills. We offer courses from 2 to 4 days in length. These programs are designed for the beginner and advanced beginner whitewater paddlers and fundamentals are stressed. Taught in 3 hour periods, the 2-day course usually provides students with enough skill to enjoy class II water, while 4-day course students usually can progress to class III water.|
All of the courses offered by Northern Waters include all paddling equipment, instruction, transportation and a campsite.
