I had my first ziplining canopy tour in the Berkshires in August this year. It was a wonderful experience. I felt completely safe and had total confidence in our guides, Hannah and Abby. I was telling another friend about how much fun I'd had, so she wanted to try it, in spite of a fear of heights. We brought the husbands with us too for a canopy tour we'd hoped would be spectacular in the fall foliage. The trip did not disappoint. Again our guides, Kyle and Morghan this time, inspired complete trust. With their encouragement, jokes, and knowledge about the area, they even managed to make my extremely nervous friend so comfortable that she wanted to go back again the next day. We didn't, but I have Zoar Outdoors canopy tour on the short list of experiences I hope to share with my grandkids this summer.

It's great to hear that you had such a positive experience and I"m glad you enjoyed both pairs of guides. As you point out, the course changes significantly from season to season. It's beautiful in each season, but, because it's in the trees, you get to experience the changes that the forest undergoes from spring to summer to fall. We're looking forward to seeing you again!

Just finished having an amazing weekend with a group of friend white water rafting and zip-lining at Zoar Outdoor. The staff and guides were great, they greeted you with a smile filled with excitement and enthusiasm at every corner. The only regret about this trip was that we couldn’t stay longer. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is seeking adventure and excitement.

Outstanding experience from the guides to the white water rafting to the zip lining. You will regret it if you don't take the time to go. They will accomodate all your needs and they are so thoughful. If they feel you won't be comfortable in your attire, they supply all that is needed for the rafting so you do not get cold or too warm. The Zip lining folks and rafting team are amazing, knowledgeable and patient.

Zoar Outdoor exceeded my expectations. The guides were all knowledgeable and professional as well as fun. Safety was always their main concern. My sons and I spent 2 nights at Hawks Lodge and did a package trip with Zipping and Whitewater Rafting as an early Mother's Day Trip. The Lodge manager was also helpful and friendly.I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Second trip in the past two years. Adults and teenagers in our party, we did the zip-line / rafting package. Great experience both times. The staff is friendly and engaging. I can not recommend this enough. You will enjoy it....

My kids (11 and 13) and I drove out for the afternoon guided paddle down the Deerfield River. Well organized, friendly and helpful guides - lots of fun and a great experience all around.

I went for white-water rafting and ziplining while staying two nights in the lodge for an early mother's day present. The package was a great deal and the trips were a terrific time. The employees were very helpful, funny, informative, and professional where safety was never a concern. If you made it this far where you are reading reviews, just do it! You will have a great time.

In my top ten best experiences of a lifetime! Never have I had a job where there are so many great people around me at all times. The community surrounding Zoar is enormous. Its literally in the hundreds of employees since 89' and many of whom still stay in touch for they are the life-blood that keeps Zoar alive. The owner has done a fantastic job of preserving an environment of powering your own adventure. Bruce Lessels and his wife have been owners since the beginning, but I didn't see him as much of a boss. He was more along the lines of a friend, facilitator and overseer of his creation born. There are other rafting companies in the area, but if you are looking for the "memories factory" experience then I say look no farther then Zoar Outdoor.
