Day 1: For those who want to try out a little of everything, the Adirondack Adventure Sampler fits the bill! Kick off your adventure with a day of canoeing on Middle and Lower Saranac Lakes, paddling big water and exploring islands sporting diverse local flora and fauna. Our guides will share safety tips and paddling techniques to ensure you have a great day on the water. Return to Base Camp that evening for your first of many backcountry feasts prepared by your guides!

Day 2: Stretch your legs and fill up on a hearty breakfast before heading out to hike the classic Nun-Da-Ga-O Ridge, offering many spectacular views along the way. Follow the ridge to the summit of Hurricane Mountain (3678 feet) [is this the route you are taking? what is the mileage?], where you can explore the fire tower located atop this rocky peak. Descend and return to Base Camp for post-hike libations, dinner, and evening of games and camaraderie around the fire.

Day 3: Road or mountain biking day [need more details on this to complete the text…where are you going, what mileage, etc.? it makes sense to decide which one you are doing as well]

Day 4: Start your day with a gourmet backcountry breakfast, then enjoy a day paddling the diverse lakes and chains of the St. Regis Canoe Area. Make your way from Hoel Pond to Turtle Pond, then over to Long Pond in just under 3 miles of paddling. Head ashore to hike a short 1.5 miles to the grassy summit of Long Pond Mountain (2530 feet), where you’ll find stunning views of the surrounding lakes and the High Peaks in the distance. Return to Base Camp after the day’s paddle for a delicious meal and restful night’s sleep in one of our Crua tents.

Day 5: Finish off your adventure with a short hike up the beloved Mt. Jo, which begins at the historic Adirondack Log. At just 2.6 miles round trip, this moderate climb lands you at the summit (2876 feet) with amazing views of the High Peaks and Heart Lake just below. Enjoy a long lunch break at the top with plenty of photo opportunities, then descend Mt. Jo to cool off with a dip in Heart Lake.
