Enjoying beauty in the outdoors….

Experiencing life to its fullest….

Welcome!

Hi! While we aren’t new to Western Massachusetts, our company is! We hope you’ll take a minute to get to know us. Let’s face it, the outdoors helped most of us get through 2020. The outdoors is one of the best places you can spend time, relieve stress and improve your health – it is scientifically proven! We are here to help you enjoy the outdoors to its fullest potential here in Western Massachusetts and the Connecticut River Valley. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you in the great outdoors soon!

Upcoming Experiences

Please see the calendar for available experiences, but be sure to check back frequently as we’ll be adding more and more as we head into the summer.

This outing will be a 9 mile paddle from the Poplar Street access downriver to the Sunderland Boat Ramp. It will include a peek up the Deerfield River and exploration of some islands and sandbars which will provide us with excellent potential opportunities for birdwatching as bald eagles and other birds of prey can often be spotted on this route.

A nice and low-key paddle at the base of Mt. Toby where paddlers will have the opportunity to become comfortable with using long kayaks and rudders. If you are considering a longer trip with Adventure East, but aren't quite sure what to expect, this is a great place to start as we will cover techniques and procedures that are useful to both newer and more experienced (or intrepid) paddlers.

Join us for an exciting evening under the stars as we climb to the top of Norwottuck on the Mount Holyoke Range in Amherst to soak up the rays of the full moon. This is a great opportunity to see 1 of 4 supermoons in 2021!

Starting from the new Kestrel Land Trust Headquarters, located at the foot of the Mount Holyoke Range, we will climb for approximately an hour and a half before arriving to the top of Norwottuck...

Spend the day with us on an outing at Lake Warner that will take us paddling and hiking, followed by an opportunity to enjoy some of the valley's local food and craft ciders.

Jason Johnson, the Executive Director of Friends of Lake Warner, will welcome us with a bit of the lake's history before we set out for the east end of the lake where we will go on a short hike through MassWildlike Wildlife Management areas until we reach Carr's Ciderhouse Preservation Orchard, overlooking the Connecticut River Valley.
