Let the fun begin!

Saranac Lake is a town unlike any other. Located among the mountains and lakes of the Adirondacks, it inspires visitors to play, create, relax, and enjoy their time in a decidedly different way. Pack your snowshoes, and get ready for the mountain vacation you've been dreaming of.

Make every day decidedly adventurous

Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re here, especially during winter! There's adventure and natural beauty to be seen all around the region. From sprawling cross-country ski routes offering wide-open views of our mountains and valleys, to intense snowmobiling treks across frozen lakes, you'll find winter adventure everywhere you turn. Looking for lowkey skiing, or perhaps somewhere to practice your tricks? Mt. Pisgah Recreation Center is Saranac Lake's very own ski mountain, offering the perfect place to introduce yourself to alpine skiing in the Adirondacks. Winter is a party in Saranac Lake, and we can't wait for you to join!

A different kind of downtown

Creative eateries, galleries, and shops are all around, along with year-round live music. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events or a world-class menu, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake full of activity. This is a downtown rich in history and infused with nature in a way that only Saranac Lake can pull off.

Breathe deep, relax, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style! Find out more with our Visitor's Guide to Saranac Lake.
