Adventure Vacations in New England

Immediately next door to Hawk Mountain Lodge is Zoar Outdoor where we offer top New England white water rafting trips, kayaking clinics, canoeing instruction , rock climbing classes and bike rentals for adventurers of all abilities, from beginners to experts.

New England Rafting

Zoar Outdoor’s whitewater rafting trips on 5 rivers across 3 states (the Deerfield, Miller & Concord, West and Housatonic) range from family rafting fun to high-adventure Class IV white water rafting - from high-water springtime adventures to dam-controlled runs in the summer and fall river trips that showcase the spectacular foliage of the Berkshires.

Zipline Canopy Tours

Our ridgetop views and spectacular hardwood and pine forest make a Deerfield Valley Canopy Tour a memorable experience.  Exhilarating views of the Deerfield River and the northern Berkshires from our ridgetop in Charlemont MA are interspersed with feelings of zipping through a tunnel of green foliage.  We've taken pains to keep the forest canopy as natural as possible so you'll experience breathtaking stands of oak, pine, maple, hemlock and birch trees and step off of natural bedrock launching pads.  You'll never believe you're still in Massachusetts!

Kayak Rentals and Bike Rentals

Rent a “sit on top” kayak on the Deerfield River for a one-day self-guided kayaking trip or rent a comfort bike or a sport road bike at our Zoar Outdoor Center in Charlemont, Massachusetts.
