The Adirondacks of Northern New York

Glide over snow. Trace shapes on ice. Make time for hearty meals and old friends. Distilled elements put life in sharp focus. Look here for winter's rewards.

Explore the Outdoors

In the Adirondacks, winter accelerates fun. For instant smiles, let gravity pull your toboggan over the brink, speed down alpine slopes, or schuss along cross-country trails. Then the Olympic flame beckons in Lake Placid, where world-class athletes train and compete before the 2018 Winter Games. Head to Tug Hill for a wild snowmobile ride. Try ice fishing from the St. Lawrence River to Piseco Lake. And trust local experts to guide you on a winter excursion, pilot dogsled rides, and lead more cold-weather adventures in safety and comfort.

Find Your Mountain Refuge

Winter adventures demand to be shared. So get cozy fireside, order a cocktail crafted from local small-batch gin or a pint of hearty stout brewed down the road, and order a homegrown burger. Select your basecamp from grand lodges, rustic mountain cabins, or motels just steps from downtown action. And join in seasonal revelry, from New Year's fireworks to February's winter carnivals. In our rural communities, it's often the owner who handles check-in, pours your drink, and recommends a meal. That's how strangers become friends, and your mountain tales weave into local folklore.

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Region features over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs.
Spanning more than six million acres with over 100 welcoming communities, the Adirondack Region is home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
