Making reservations was easy and fast. The Moose Mountain Inn was your typical motel but it did have refrigerators and microwaves which was a plus. The pool was clean and we enjoyed taking a dip after the 8 hour drive. However, the moose tour was disappointing. After driving almost 40 minutes, we came to a dirt road for the "wildlife"... More

Northwoods outfitters took great care of us during our July trip to Moosehead Lake. Matt was an excellent instructor for my 12 year old son and fantastic guide for me. We caught several nice brook trout and more salmon than I can recall. One monster salmon even took me all the way to the backing of my spool! Great jumps... More

Our guide would not give up until we saw a moose. We looked in many nooks and crannys. We finally saw one in the bushes nibbling. I would love to go back and try it again.

This is a very, very well organized guide trip using canoes. Matt was our guide. We almost immediately saw one moose, even before the canoes were launched. As a solo traveler, I was in Matt's canoe, but I know everyone had a great time. The second moose was grazing on the other side of the lake and totally ignored us... More

What an amazing company! From the first call I made to inquire about a moose tour to the last call I made to book it was first class service the entire time. I was helped by a lady named Jen and she was fabulous! She was patient and kind and willing to answer my many questions without becoming annoyed or... More

We arrived in Greenville and chose this outfit as they are associated with our hotel (Moose Mountain Inn). Our guide was Ashely who took the 6 of us to a pond for canoeing to look for moose. We found one almost immediately and under Ashley's guidance, we very slowly approached to within 30 yards and the moose closing another 10... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had high hopes for my husband (and avid hunter) and I to see moose. We both had an excellent time with our guide Eric - he was great! Eric was extremely knowledgeable about the area, Moosehead Lake, and hidden moose locations. We saw a total of 7 moose on our canoe trip!.... More

We took the Moose Safari Tour on the lake, in canoes! Our guide was Ashley! The canoe fit 3 easily, and since we were the only 2 on the tour it was like having our own personal wildlife guide! Ashley found a lake right off that had a couple of moose, which was one of the big reasons we came... More

We made the 2 plus hour drive from Ellsworth, ME to go on the moose safari and we were NOT disappointed!!!! We saw 11, that's right 11 moose! Two bulls, two calves and seven cows! It was a beautiful trip and the guide, Steve was friendly, knowledgeable and funny. I can't wait to vacation again in Maine, and do this... More
