Course Description

We’ve designed the perfect weekend trip for anyone looking for a fun-filled introduction to some of summer’s most popular activities. Exploring in and around beautiful Flagstaff Lake and Bigelow Mountain, this weekend getaway allows you to enjoy hiking and canoeing – plus a kayak camping adventure – in a lovely wilderness setting.

On your first day, you’ll meet our Registered Maine Guides. They’ll take you on a guided excursion through Bigelow Preserve’s network of hiking trails. You’ll get a chance to see up close the abundance of wildlife that inhabit this area. You’ll spend the night at a remote campground where your guides will cook a tasty meal, enhanced by the ambiance of a crackling fire. Afterwards, you’ll swap stories with them, play games and relax in the great outdoors. Then, you’ll settle into our comfortable tents for a restful night’s sleep.

In the morning, you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast and pack your gear into our kayaks. You’ll leisurely paddle across the water to Flagstaff Hut, renowned for its beauty and state-of-the-art “off the grid” design. Along the way, you’ll get a chance to check out remote areas were moose sightings are likely. After a day of exploring this amazing lake, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner at the hut.

Flagstaff Hut offers comfortable bunkhouse style accommodations, which are usually mixed gender; although, single-gender accommodations may be requested at check-in. Excellent home-cooked meals and friendly company are the hallmark of this hut, so you’ll feel right at home.

You’ll conclude this weekend getaway with a final canoeing or kayaking adventure, followed by a short hike out to a shuttle, which will return you to your vehicle.

All necessary paddling and camping equipment are provided, plus meals and snacks.
