Paddling

Your Adirondack Paddling Adventure Begins Here...

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.

Explore The "10 Rivers Region" 

Tupper Lake is centrally located in the heart of the "10 Rivers Region." Within a 30-mile radius you can explore the Raquette River, Cold River, Hudson River, Beaver River, Marion River, Oswegatchie River, St. Regis River, Bog River, Grass River, and the Saranac River. Combine these 10 rivers with a vast assortment of hidden ponds, winding streams, and pristine lakes and the product is a paddling playground that will occupy you for a lifetime.
