Did the zip line for our 13 and 15 year old, slept in the cabin tents, and did the kayak tour the next day. Everybody had a great time, and their staff is very professional!

We spent the morning zip lining the 11 lines, crossing the 2 walking bridges and lowering ourselves down the 3 rappel lines and it was so much more exciting and well-run than we expected! We had been zip lining in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic before with our kids but this experience beat both of those not only for... More

I had a great day of instruction provided by Zoar. My guide, Hank, was an excellent instructor and receptive to my needs and requests. A really awesome day with a great guy - fun day on the river!

My girlfriend took me ziplining here for my birthday and I loved every minute of it. 11 ziplines, two bridges, and a few times repelling down from the tree. It was a perfect course with a good variety on length and uniqueness for each run. Loved the one where you can land on the ground like Mary Poppins and the... More

We were well looked after from booking to activity. The staff were friendly and professional and we had the most fantastic time! Our stay in the lodge an th recommendations for places to eat were spot on. The zipping was through the trees and gradually increased in difficulty/speed and was so much fun we wanted to do it again.

Had a GREAT time rafting the Deerfield River Dryway, class 3-4 whitewater this past weekend, after driving ~2 hours to get there. The staff at Zoar is incredibly friendly, fun and outgoing-- but why wouldn't they be? They have a super fun job! The weather that day wasn't the greatest-- it was forecast to be mid-eighties and sunny, but when... More

I am an ocean kayaker, instructor, and guide,. A friend suggested I cross train for kayak surfing, rock play and swift current by trying white water. He recommended Zoar. I signed up and took instruction. A full day o.n the water with a terrific instructor in a Mamba in level 1 & 2 rapids was perfect. Great day, great water... More
