We booked the moose, paddle safari which left early morning. When we arrived, the building was locked and no one there. Panic! Thought we were in the wrong place! Shortly, our guide arrived and we set out (2 of us and a family of 4). We started out driving & looking without success. Launched canoes and tried again without success?... More

We kind of last minute scheduled a moose safari base on all the positive trip advisor reviews. The day we had hoped to do it, there was only afternoon availability. We were a little skeptical about seeing moose in the evening but had seen one on the way in to Greenville Junction, coming in from the north, the evening before... More

I thought we were getting a canoe trip to spot moose and a very brief land trip. It was windy and very hard to do the paddling. We went for a very bumpy car ride for about 2 hours with no stops. It was over logging roads. So if you have a bad back stay away. We also booked two... More

We weren't sure what to expect but would have been happy just seeing at least one moose in its natural habitat. Well, we saw two, both a male and a female, both in the water grazing. It was amazing. We followed the bull for about an hour around the pond. We got within about 25 yards! Got great memories and... More

We were staying in Mount Desert Island for a weeklong vacation. We loved the area but didn't come across too many opportunities for fishing and moose viewing. I did some research and found that what we were looking for was more up in the Northern part of Maine. So we drove the two hours for a moose excursion and a... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed a private moose safari with Eric. It was definitely one of the highlights of our 2 week New England holiday. We travelled to Greenville specifically for this experience and it was well worth it. The canoeing on the lake was idyllic and easy, even for canoe 'novices'! We didn't manage to see a moose while...

Great place to stop for coffee and reconnect for a bit. The cafe is inside a store that has a great selection of clothing and outdoor apparel. We forgot to bring a sweatshirt for chilly nights and encountered a chilly week. Northwoods Outfitters had a great selection of non-touristy jackets and sweatshirts to choose from. If you want touristy, they... More

Our tour guide was Eric for both a moose safari and trolling the Lake was awesome. He was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable about everything in the area - so be sure to come with lots of questions. We were getting late in the season when moose are a little harder to find, but he found one and let us... More

Northwoods Outfitters was able to provide us some good advice when we put together our wilderness canoe trip in northern Maine. Unfortunately, Pat, the owner, gave us one piece of crucial misinformation. This significantly impacted our trip in a very negative way. Therefore, if you use this business I advise you to double check all the information provided.

My in-laws won a gift certificate for a Moose Safari with Northwoods Outfitters and graciously gifted it to us. We went out at 6am this morning with another family of 4 and Steve, our guide, for a total of 7 people. I loved the small group. Steve was courteous, friendly, and very knowledgeable as we drove up to our first... More
