Looking for a little adrenaline? Check out the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers in Maine. A day on the river is a great way to see nature up close and literally feel the power of mother nature.
First-timers will enjoy the constant rolling rapids of the Kennebec River and those who are really want can take on the Class V rapids of the Penobscot River. Trips are available for children as young as three and these full day adventures include all of the necessary gear as well as lunch, drinks, and snacks.
The rivers pass through rocky gorges as well as marshes where you may see native plants, birds, and even moose.
The best times of year to go are spring, when the waters are high, and the end of summer when the weather is best.
