Wilderness Trips

For more than two hundred years naturalists and adventurers have been drawn to the vast wilderness of the Adirondacks. With over six million acres of land, the Adirondack Park is the largest single park in the continental United States. This beautiful region of New York contains 46 mountains in excess of 4000 ft., thousands of ponds and lakes, and hundreds of miles of spectacular rivers and streams. Since it's creation, more than one hundred years ago, the park has been protected by the New York State Constitution and deemed Forever Wild. Placid Bay Ventures offers a plethora of adventures and activities for the outdoor and sports enthusiast interested in discovering the beauty of this environment. We are located in the heart of the "HighPeaks" region of the Adirondacks. Our guide is a certified Outdoor leader with the Wilderness Education Association, and has a degree in Wilderness Education.
