Paddling in and around Bethel is phenomenal. We have many lakes and ponds as well as over 30 miles on the mighty Androscoggin River. Paddling is excellent, fun exercise and perhaps one of the best ways to birdwatch and see varied scenery. We will tailor your adventure to your paddling experience and desires.
