We recently traveled to Moosehead Lake hoping to see some Moose. We were not disappointed as we saw two magnificent creatures, one Bull and a beautiful cow. Our guide, Eric Hollbrook, was amazing. He knew were to find the moose. He could even call the moose out of the forest. Eric is also a well known fishing guide. We learned... More

We were visiting Maine for a wedding and long weekend getaway. We had a free day and decided that we wanted to drive 3 hours north to increase our chances of seeing a moose. We discovered Northwoods Outfitters online and were pleased with the service we received. They were able to answer our numerous questions and set us up with... More

Well we did the private moose tour in Greenville Maine. We saw no moose despite being in the woods for 5 hours. We realize we were looking for an animal. The guide was very nice and really tried but.... There were so many grouse hunters on the same roads we were and our van was so so noisy the moose... More

In the area for only a couple of days, we are so glad we did a moose-watching safari with you! What a perfect way to enjoy a beautiful evening in Maine...in a canoe on a quiet secluded pond in the woods with a guide like Ethan. Eagle-eyed, he spotted and pointed out grouse and turkey on the drive to and... More

We saw one moose and had a good time and learned a lot about them. We chose a private tour and it lasted a little over 4 hours and was worth it. Our guide was knowledgable and personable. Something you should do while in the area for sure.

My parents and I went on a private moose safari with Matt and had a great time. He was extremely well versed in the area and knew the best areas to go to spot moose. Matt knew how to appropriately "approach" (ie get near without scaring) the moose so that we could get a better viewing. He also educated us... More

Matt was our guide on a awesome trip to a remote area north of Greenville. It was a private trip which I would highly recommend. It was well worth the extra cost. Saw 5 moose, 2 bald eagles, and numerous other wildlife. It was so relaxing out in nature and Matt was very knowledgeable. On our return stopped to see... More

We went on a moose tour last year with Ashley through Northwoods. When we returned to the area this summer, we called for a repeat trip because last year's was so good! Ashley didn't disappoint - she gave us an incredible amount of natural history and wildlife management information and she taught us how to behave to not scare away... More

The Moose safari itself was pretty good. They took us on a canoe tour thru a beautiful lake with very scenic views. That took about an hour and a half and we did not catch a single moose during our canoe time. Then we drove thru a lot of back country roads in search of one. Eventually as we were... More

My wife and I vacationed in Acadia N.P. for the week after Labor Day and one of the things we had to do was see a moose while we were in Maine. I have wanted to see a moose all my life, so, we drove the 3 hours from Acadia N.P. to the Moosehead Lake Region (also beautiful) to go... More
