What's SUP?

Grab your canoe, your kayak or your SUP (stand up paddle board) and make Tupper Lake your base camp for your next paddling adventure!

Once considered the "Highways of the Adirondacks," the rivers, lakes and streams in the Tupper Lake area provide endless paddling opportunities. From half-day kayak excursions to week long canoe trips, Tupper Lake will most definitely offer you a paddling trip to remember. But whatever you choose for a route length and boat type, there is one common denominator in all paddling trips: the spectacular scenery and wildlife will make you want to have your camera handy.
