Orenda Landscape

Canoe & Kayaking

Here are just a couple of trips that we recommend while enjoying the region.  They are perfect for both the novice and expert. We offer the use of our onsite Canoes and Kayaks throughout your stay. However your more than welcome to bring your own.

Garnet Lake

Less than two miles from Orenda, Garnet Lake is an unspoiled, tranquil mountain lake. It is ideal for swimming and considered the best bass fishing in the area.  Surrounded by mountains, Garnet Lake provides the ideal location for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming.   There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen; from spotted Bald Eagles and Red Tail Hawks to Beavers and Loons. In the fall, the foliage surrounding the lake is breathtaking.  After a long day of hiking and enjoying the back-country we will head up to the lake for a rejuvenating swim.  On a clear night you can enjoy a unpolluted view of our universe.

Thirteenth Lake

Is one of many lakes in our region that offer some of the most breathtaking views of  an unspoiled Adirondack lake.  A 20 min ride from Orenda,  Thirteenth Lake is abundant with wildlife, from Ospreys, Beavers to large Dragon Flies.  Thirteenth Lake is a great place to experience an Adirondack gem.

Hudson River

The Hudson river offers a variety of classes of river travel.  We can arrange for  guided white water run down the Hudson Gorge or recommend several put in locations for self guided trips.

We can arrange guided Kayaking and Canoeing Instruction and Excursions upon request
