Why Choose Us??
One word: Experience
When North Woods Rafting began in 2002, there were only 2 rafting companies in NH and only one of them rafted NH waters – us. Owners at the time, Mark Peabody and Kimberly Hockmeyer both had experience with white water rafting. Kimberly's family owned and operated Northern Outdoors in Maine, and Mark had been a whitewater kayaking enthusiast for many years. In a small family-owned company like North Woods Rafting, you know you are getting an experience crafted by owners who are meticulous in their training techniques and employee choices. New owner Jen Gamble and Senior Guide/Operations Manager Ken Dyer bring experience working with Mark and Kim in prior years, and in local business operations. Jen and Ken are working hard to continue running a quality, family-friendly rafting company, and are off to a great start!
The best location and the best meals on the river!
Pontook Dam Trip: Located just minutes from the put in on the Androscoggin River below Pontook Dam means that the stress of hurrying to gear-up is non-existent, and the time spent in a vehicle is minimal.
Errol Rapid Trip: You meet us at the river, the only shuttles you have to do are from the take-out to the put-in for your second run, and again after your second run. No shuttle to the river or from the river!
While white water rafting is an absolute blast, after a morning or afternoon on the water, guests and guides are ready to fill up their bellies! Relax and enjoy a meal riverside, or on our porch, with no extra cost to you.
