Adirondack Scenic Flights
For those looking to see it all, Adirondacks Scenic Flights takes you up above our spectacular mountain ranges for a very different leaf peeping perspective. Offering three different tours - the High Peaks, the Olympics and the Lakes, you can experience Adirondack fall color, history and geological wonders from 1700'.
Experience ADK Outdoors
You may have experienced the Adirondack Mountains from above the trees, but have you experienced them through the trees? Adirondack ziplining has often been requested, but until recently not available. Experience ADK Outdoors changed all that and is now offering Lake Placid's first zip line adventure tour. Tap into your inner Adirondack Tarzan and swing through the trees for a two-hour adventure you'll never forget.
You might not be getting in the waters of the Ausable River this time of year, but the 'Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks' is something to see whether you're getting your feet wet or not. Whether you are looking for a full day of adventure or just a few hours, a leisurely trail walk or an adrenaline pumping Adirondack obstacle course you are bound to find exactly what you're looking for and more at Ausable Chasm, and incredible photo opportunities to boot.
Harvest Dining at its Best
If you're anything like us, autumn is synonymous with delicious food (and coffee). Whether you're picnicking in the Adirondacks or reaping the rewards of the autumn harvest (in the way of sweet and savory tasty treats) the Adirondacks satisfy, body and soul.
