We had a great moose safari! Zach, our tour guide, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable (told us lots about different fauna and flora) and personable. During our tour, we saw 3 moose, a bear, a deer, several snowshoe hares, and grouse. Really enjoyed ourselves!...More

The rafting experiences are fantastic! With a choice between a family-friendly river and an adventure-seeking river, you can't go wrong. I've been on both rivers and each is wet, fun, and a good excuse to get outside. Another highlight with Northeast was paddle boarding on...More
