The Adirondacks of Northern New York

The lengthening of days opens up new worlds in the Adirondacks, filled with sweet summer moments ripe for memory-making trips!

The Great Summer Escape

Grab a canoe or boat and explore the rugged and beautiful shorelines of the Saranac Lake Chain, and make a night of it with an island camping experience. Or get off the grid for the afternoon in the St. Regis Wilderness Canoe Area for some paddling in the Adirondacks, followed by a fun-filled night at one of the Adirondacks' family resorts.

Sun-Filled Days & Star-Filled Nights

Summer memories are made on hiking trails, on lakes, and under starry skies. At least, in the Adirondacks they are! Discover the awesome beauty of starry night skies when light pollution is non-existent and the summer meteor showers rain down in a brilliant light display in August. Or plan an Adirondack hiking trip and find a summit with far-as-the-eye-can-see views.

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Regions feature over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs. Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Mountains are home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 of the United States. 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.
