Our goal at Maine Path & Paddle Guides is to enhance your appreciation of Maine’s beautiful landscape through outdoor recreation. It seems that many people are completely overwhelmed by the demands and stresses of everyday life, and they fail to experience or even notice the breathtaking beauty that Mother Nature can provide. Many folks don’t realize, or have forgotten the therapeutic and spiritual value of spending a few nights under the stars.

It is a great way to strengthen bonds between friends and family, and to help reinforce positive values such as sharing and teamwork. Of course there are the obvious health benefits as well. A little exercise in the fresh, clean air of the great outdoors will certainly do physical and psychological good for just about anyone. So, come join us on one of our paddles or multisport trips. It will be an experience that will provide a lifetime of memories.
