Program #16454RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
“Feeling at one with the water” is how enthusiasts describe the singular sensation of kayaking. Experience this tranquility for yourself, paddling a pristine lake as dawn’s rising mist reveals reflections of autumnal trees and your own smiling visage. Instruction begins in the calm lee of the boathouse. Once you are familiar with the equipment and how to use it safely, enjoy kayaking excursions to nearby waters led by experts.


Highlights

• Kayak Sagamore Lake and larger waters nearby, paddling the same waters the Vanderbilts and other Gilded Age elites did before you.
• Learn techniques for maneuvering your craft on flat water and tips for paddling in flowing rivers.
• An evening of traditional Adirondack entertainment or education caps your adventure.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Kayaking 1-6 miles a day; generally flat-water kayaking but lakes are large enough to experience choppy conditions. You should be able to swim. All equipment is provided but you may bring your own.

Coordinated by Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks.
