PINKHAM NOTCH, NH- Late day into sunset brings a whole new environment of sights, sounds and wildlife to Mt. Washington Valley’s local rivers. But since most kayak tours tend to take place in the first half of the day, the quiet end of the day is a largely unknown to area paddlers.
As a partial remedy to that, Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center is offering a first for the area-a guided sunset tour along a pristine stretch of the Androscoggin River on Tuesday, July 16th.
Kayaks, paddles and personal flotation devices are all supplied, as well as the area’s most experienced guides. In fact, Great Glen Trails Program and Paddling Manager Nate Harvey also serves as a member and instructor for the area’s elite White Mountain Swiftwater Rescue Team.
While a variety of tours (both calm and whitewater) are offered by Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, the sunset tours are unique unto themselves. “It really is a special time of day to be out on the water. It’s generally calm, the light is great and the wildlife typically becomes more active as dusk approaches. It’s our intimate knowledge of these rivers that allows us to comfortably and safely manage the logistics of a sunset paddle. It’s an experience not to be missed,” said Nate Harvey.
