The Kennebec Valley

Book a vacation home in any of the Kennebec Valley communities to be close to white water rafting on the Kennebec River. Whether you'd like to take a day trip on the rough waters of the Kennebec or make it a two-day trip, the cool Maine waters are guaranteed to provide thrills, chills, and plenty of excitement. Just make sure that you pay attention to your guide during the rafting trip! These waters can be treacherous.

If you like your excitement at a slower pace, try a kayak trip or a float trip. You'll actually get to see the river better as you leisurely travel across the surface of the calmer areas. Most of the rafting companies also include paintball fields to keep their guests busy while they wait to get on the water or for their ride back to their vacation homes. There's never a dull moment during adventure vacations in Maine in the Kennebec Valley.
