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.

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.

Pretty good white water trip. They took us out even though there was an impending storm. I know they don't want to turn people away (we drove from NY), but they ended up taking us out in pretty dangerous conditions and we were forced to park the rafts to try to wait out the storm. Unfortunately the storm got worse and they ended up cutting the trip in half. They did refund half our money and they were pretty nice about things, but they still should have exercised better judgment. They also didn't have the BBQ dinner ready for us when we got back due to the bus taking too long to get us. All the food was gone and we were offered cookies, small sandwiches and drinks. For me who has to eat gluten free that basically left me with eating lettuce and potato salad.

We monitor the weather each day, but since rafting is an outdoor activity, we sometimes encounter storms on the river, most of which are short-lived. The day Mr. Bourgoin rafted with us we experienced a very unusual thunder storm that came into our area and stayed for several hours. In fact it made the local papers because of its abnormal pattern. Normally, these sorts of storms blow over quickly and we are able to continue on our trip, but this day the storm stayed in our valley, so we had to evacuate our trips. We realized we had not planned the food back at our base for this contingency and that some folks did not get the lunch they were supposed to receive, so we did offer 50% refunds to them. We appreciate this feedback and are constantly looking for ways we can improve our programs.

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.

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!

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.

My family and I went to Zoar for the zip line tour and had a fantastic time! In short here's what we liked. The location is stunningly beautiful and I can only believe that later in the year once the leaves change it will be even better. The staff know their jobs cold. There was no feeling of someone just stumbling through what they "should" know. Everyone is very competent. One of the really nice things is that unlike some places the staff also obviously like what they're doing and that level of enthusiasm comes through which is infectious. They also know how to talk to people and not AT people which was really cool. There are 11 zip lines with the longest one being 660 ft long. The layout of the course was a progression from shorter, slower zips on up to the long and fast runs. The gear is all well maintained and CLEAN. The instruction was very complete and any correction when needed was handled with grace. Finally the gear and the way it's used made for a very safe and fun experience. They use a 2 cable and pulley system that is crazy strong and safe. Highly recommended!!!
