A Long Tradition of Adirondack Adventure

The Adirondacks has a long tradition of guiding. As early as the 1800s, Adirondack guides have been shepherding visitors through the woods and along Adirondack lakes, rivers, and waterways providing guidance and education as they go. Whether you are looking for someone to help you become a Saranac Lake 6er, or want a guided tour while paddling past many of the historic Great Camps that line Saranac Lake, there are many guides and experts in Saranac lake who are excited to help you explore the area!

Today, visitors to the Saranac Lake area have access to a wide variety of outdoor activities, many with licensed Adirondack guides offering their know-how, gear, and even transportation. Having a trained and licensed guide is the best way to discover the magic and hidden gems that make Saranac Lake the Adirondacks' Coolest Place!
