So, what's so great about September whitewater rafting? A few things. The first being that you don't have the usual tourist traffic that you would in the busy months of July and August, both on the roads as well as around town. Our quaint little town of Greenville, Maine is extra charming as we head into September because the busy season has already come and gone and everyone has time to stop and talk, making a more personal connection with all of our travelers. Because it's no longer the peak travel season, you will also notice the abundance of discounts- perfect for a family vacation on a budget! Vacationing on the off-season is the perfect way to keep prices low and the cheapest rafting rates you'll see all year! Even though the air temperature is starting to get colder and the days starting to get shorter, September is still a great time to go whitewater rafting because the water has yet to really cool off. We start the day off right by preparing our guests for the weather by renting wetsuits as well as suggestions on how to stay warm...even if it means some nice yummy hot chocolate at lunch! The absolute best part about rafting in September, though, is the absolutely immaculate scenery. The New England fall foliage is known around the country as some of the most beautiful fall colors, and the Moosehead Lake Region definitely takes the trophy in the beauty pageant of landscapes. There is nothing more beautiful than rafting down the Penobscot River Gorge or Kennebec River Alleyway surrounded by fall foliage of bright yellow, crisp orange, and firey red. There are few things better than whitewater rafting in this world, and whitewater rafting in the fall is one of them!
