Kayaking & Canoeing

Kayaking & Canoeing in New Hampshire

When you climb into a canoe or kayak, you take the pace and pulse of your adventure into your own hands. In New Hampshire, you can dip your paddle into a pristine lake or lazy river. Or you can try sea kayaking or take on Class IV whitewater rapids if that's how you roll. There are plenty of places to try stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), too! Test your balance with a SUP yoga class on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Many tour guides and outfitters await your call, or visit a rental shop for canoeing or kayaking gear and advice. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced paddler, one of these itineraries may inspire you to canoe or kayak New Hampshire's waterways. All three traverse scenic stretches of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, which links 740 miles of navigable waterways in New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine.
