Long before there were roads, the Adirondacks' many rivers, lakes and streams were the preferred method of travel through the wilderness. Today, several Adirondack companies offer canoe rentals and/or guided canoe tours, where you can experience paddling flat waters while enjoying the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Ready to buy a canoe? You can purchase canoes from several area outfitters.
