Scenic Drives

In the Adirondacks, our scenic roadways offer some of the prettiest views and panoramic vistas found in the entire six-million-acre Adirondack Park. Charming towns and villages provide a variety of unique attractions, from community festivals to open-air theatrical productions. In summer, find seasonal roadside stands offering everything from handmade rustic goods to locally produced honey. Winter brings colorful festivals celebrating holidays and winter sports.

Every season brings unique views and experiences. Spring's burst of bright green leaves and pretty wildflowers is charming, while the warmth of summer offers long, windows open adventure. Each fall, the Adirondacks lush, green landscape is transformed into an artist's palette of vibrant colors. Leaf peepers can enjoy entire forests of golden aspen, beech and birch, as well as vermilion sugar maple. Drive along quiet country routes and discover tucked-away historic treasures like Great Camp Sagamore and Raquette Lake. In winter, drive along roads seemingly lifted from a holiday movie, with snowy trees as far as the eye can see.

Travel through the wilds of the area and glimpse wildlife such as deer, boreal birds and the occasional moose. Miles of picturesque shoreline offer a charming picture, as well as incredible boating and paddling opportunities in warmer months. Follow a meandering country road, or enjoy the simple pleasure of watching the road unfold ahead.

Float Plane Rides

Find one of the only places in the Adirondack Park offering scenic float plane rides. Charter a flight and experience the Adirondacks from a birds'-eye-view, or fly into the Adirondack Mountains for a backcountry camping or fishing trip.

Boat Tours

Explore the historic and scenic lake shores of the Adirondacks from the bow of a small cruise ship or guideboat, and dine on the water too!
