Aroostook County: Open for Exploration
Aroostook County is rich in outdoor recreation opportunities in every season.
If you are new to outdoor adventure, consider hiring one of the many local Registered Maine Guides in the area. Even if you are an experienced outdoor adventurer, a Registered Maine Guide can make your trip a more enjoyable and often an educational experience.
Caribou has the best of both worlds with modern urban amenities and breathtaking scenery. Whether you like snowmobiling, four-wheeling, motorcycle cruising, kayaking, hunting, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, summer street fairs, fall arts and crafts or just plain relaxing by a campsite, Caribou is for you.
Caribou has over 100 miles of beautifully groomed snowmobile trails which connect to over 2300 miles throughout Aroostook County. The season typically starts in December and often runs well into April. With copious amounts of snowfall, typically measured in feet rather than inches, Caribou offers endless sledding adventures for all! For more information, go to cariboumaine.org, facebook.com/cityofcaribou, or the Caribou Snowmobile Club.

There is nothing that compares with star gazing and the Northern Lights in Aroostook County.
