Gateway to relaxation

The Saranac Lake Region is one of the oldest travel hubs in northern New York's Adirondacks. With historic routes and waterways making connections throughout our wilderness landscape, travelers have explored our region for centuries. Today, visitors' experiences range from peaceful enjoyment of nature to rugged backwoods exploration. We invite you to set your own course or tap into the expertise of local hosts, instructors, artisans, and guides.
