An Adirondack tradition

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 each of the Saranac lakes, 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 in the Saranac Lake area!

Leave No Trace and Love Your ADK Pledge

The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
