Ranging from what you plan to bring to who you want to come with you, to how long you are prepared for being away from the real world, the successful Allagash Wilderness River Trip can be made or lost before your paddle ever touches the water. Or if you want someone else to take care of it for you, a few of our partner-providers are Mahoosuc Guide Service and Allagash Canoe Trips.
From a ten-day end-to-end journey to a lifetime, or just 3 or 4 days from the halfway point at Churchill Dam you must count on the fax that it takes everyone a little time to ease into the idea that wilderness truly means wilderness. No stores. No Phones. No one else out there but you. Day one might involve a few heavy breathing exercises to cope with this idea. So part of your trip preparation should be gaining an understanding of your own capacity to camp and then camp with a canoe added into the equation.
The full length of the waterway runs 92 miles and along the way there are virtually no signs of human civilization. A nice treat for those who want to disconnect, or connect, depending on how you look at it.
So take the time to do your homework, learn about the waterway, make sure it is the trip for you, be ready to take on all that the north Maine wood has for you to discover (both good and bad) and trust that our Maine Woods Discovery providers will be able to help you plan the best and most memorable journey down this unbelievable waterway and wilderness area.
