Other Great Adventures
We're committed to the passionate pursuit of the present moment, to the prospect of feeling our place, our sense of belonging, right here and right now!
We believe that when we allow for the fullest experience of the present moment, the overwhelming power of the lake's beauty can dull yesterday's regrets and temper tomorrow's worries...if even for a moment.
We believe that moment is worth it!
At Sail Ontario, we grab that moment every time we cast off lines, hoist a sail, and dig into the wind. On board any one of our vessels, every moment can be THAT moment.
Whether Captained Charters, Sailing Lessons, or Sailboat Rentals, Sail Ontario is THE place to find THAT MOMENT!
Something happens in the backcountry.
You breathe easier. Think clearer. Feel sharper.
We started Adirondack Hamlets to Huts because we don’t think you should need to own an expedition’s worth of gear – or be willing to sleep in a tent for days on end – to experience that freedom.
The hut-to-hut model is a time-tested favorite in Europe, New Zealand and other places, and it’s getting more popular in North America, too. What’s different about Adirondack Hamlets to Huts is how we’ve conceived our network: Every route starts and ends in a community. You’ll hike, bike, paddle, snowshoe or ski through some of the most stunning, remote Adirondack landscapes imaginable by day. And when the day ends, you’ll come off the trail to eat a hot meal in a local restaurant or backcountry lodge, and retire for the night to a warm bed before beginning another day’s exploration of the vast and wild Adirondacks.
The adventure based challenge course industry grew out of a desire to implement a wilderness type experience into a fixed setting, as opposed to the expedition setting. These courses are eco-friendly tourist attractions, that leave participants with an outdoor experience like no other. This experience takes place in the heart of the Adirondack Park — Lake Placid, New York.
Capturing the essence of the Adirondack Park is one of Experience Outdoors primary goals, second only to the safety of our guests. By building our adventure course in Lake Placid our guests will enjoy an unprecedented look at the very park that draws seven to ten million visitors annually.
Visitors of the Adirondack Park come for two reasons; to spend quality time with loved ones without the distractions of civilization and to enjoy over six million acres of unbridled beauty. The bonds between our guests and nature will grow as fast as their bonds with each other; Experience Outdoors will both thrill and enlighten our guests, through our zip line canopy tour and through confidence building exercises to create a well-rounded overview to the park we all know and love.
SARANAC INN GOLF COURSE
A Fun Course from Start to Finish!
Four sets of tees make the course fun for golfers of all skill levels. A classic Scottish design, the course has great variety, with a mix of long, medium and short par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s. The fast and true bent grass greens give you a chance to sink some putts…but don’t get too complacent, each green is different and unique. Some greens are flat and there are large undulating ones, too. Be ready for the greens with false fronts and that heart-stopper three tier green on 9. The ninth has been described as a wave that can putt out from under your feet. The Saranac Inn Golf Course is for all you golfers who know that golf is a love/hate relationship. Some holes you’ll love, some you’ll hate, but there will be no forgetting the great golf and fantastic fun. “It is a course that doesn’t do ambivalence and it doesn’t do cookie cutter.” It’s also a course you’ll play and want to come back to again and again.
A Warm Welcome is Always on Hand at the Saranac Inn.
