Our family of 5 enjoyed a private moose safari with Eric. It was definitely one of the highlights of our 2 week New England holiday. We travelled to Greenville specifically for this experience and it was well worth it. The canoeing on the lake was idyllic and easy, even for canoe 'novices'! We didn't manage to see a moose while...

Great place to stop for coffee and reconnect for a bit. The cafe is inside a store that has a great selection of clothing and outdoor apparel. We forgot to bring a sweatshirt for chilly nights and encountered a chilly week. Northwoods Outfitters had a great selection of non-touristy jackets and sweatshirts to choose from. If you want touristy, they... More

Our tour guide was Eric for both a moose safari and trolling the Lake was awesome. He was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable about everything in the area - so be sure to come with lots of questions. We were getting late in the season when moose are a little harder to find, but he found one and let us... More

Northwoods Outfitters was able to provide us some good advice when we put together our wilderness canoe trip in northern Maine. Unfortunately, Pat, the owner, gave us one piece of crucial misinformation. This significantly impacted our trip in a very negative way. Therefore, if you use this business I advise you to double check all the information provided.

My in-laws won a gift certificate for a Moose Safari with Northwoods Outfitters and graciously gifted it to us. We went out at 6am this morning with another family of 4 and Steve, our guide, for a total of 7 people. I loved the small group. Steve was courteous, friendly, and very knowledgeable as we drove up to our first... More

We signed up for a group tour which included a family of five, my daughter, grandson and I. It was an early rise to... More

First of all, this place has nice clothing and a good coffee shop. We went on the moose safari evening trip. Drove down many logging roads and canoed on a small lake, but didn't see any moose. Our guide said he had led about 50 trips and only twice not seen any. There had been thunderstorms during the day, and... More

We did a moose tour with Tim an it was absolutely amazing. We saw male moose from really close (maybe 20 meters away). It was fascinating. Apart from that the scenery was stunning and we learned so much about the outdoors. Tim was just great! Thank you so much!

Steve was a great guide. We saw a moose in the first 15 minutes of our guided visit and this made our vacation totally worth-while. He knew just where to go, how to be quiet to take photos, etc. The canoe trip was very peaceful and enjoyable. Highly recommended way to see the countryside and animals without the guess-work normally... More

We are so happy to have gone on an early morning Moose Safari with Steve. Not only was he very knowledgeable about moose, birds, and other wildlife, he was also incredibly personable and friendly. We saw three moose over the course of our Safari. Two were seen from the road. However, the most impressive was the one seen from the... More
