We went on an early morning safari in a van with Steve as our guide. He was very friendly & knowledgeable. It was unseasonably warm for 9/23 & the moose were just starting their rut season. He had to drive all over but eventually we saw 4 moose ! This was our first time visiting Maine & seeing wild moose... More

We visited the area October 2015. We did the early morning canoe tour for moose siting. It took about 30-45 minutes to drive to the pond. Once in the pond, we canoed around for approximately 30 minutes. Moose sited at the point we ported. The cow walked into the water, hung out eating and drinking. We slowly canoed up within... More

Excellent boat float for trout and land-locked salmon for my son and myself. Our guide, Matt, was friendly and a great instructor. Arrived at the end of the season, but still caught nice fish. Just a wonderful day on the water.

My wife and I went on a private moose safari with Matt and it was worth every penny! Patience is required, as the first hour was playing hide and seek with the moose. We were also told by other people that at this time of the year, the chances are less than 50/50. However, we saw 2 cows, 2 bulls,... More

Terrific trip with Eric as our guide. He went out of his way to get us up close to 11 moose. Fabulous photo ops on the water and on land! He's very knowledgeable and friendly - a great guide.

Ashley (our guide) tried really hard to find a moose, but this time they alluded her. She looked in every nook and cranny , drove all over, but no avail. However, she was a delight. Hours of deep knowledge about Maine, dog sledding and of course moose. She is awesome. We had been on the moose tour before and saw... More

I recently spent a week in Greenville and had the pleasure of dealing with Northern Outfitters. They offer a long list of activates and have the equipment to make it happen for sale or rent. They also have a tremendous amount of knowledge of the area. I would highly suggest tapping into this resource when planning your Maine adventures. The... More

They have most things one would need or want from an outfitter, quality products, OK prices and great location. The down piece is the unfriendly ownership and a "look the other way " staff. This has been not only for us but this has been the experience of both friends and family. Staff makes you feel like you are bothering... More

We booked several excursions with Northwoods but we found their fly fishing trips the best. Now, in fairness, fishing was one of the activities that brought us to Greenville, ME in the first place(The ATV rides and moose safari were awesome too). Since we were beginners, Northwoods, set us up with Matt L as our first lesson and that was... More
